Dear DCSS Parents and Students:
The BC Ministry of Education announced that schools will be partially reopening beginning June 2, 2020. DCSS South Peace Campus students will be permitted to access the school 20% of the time (equivalent of one day per week). Returning to school in June is optional. If families choose to keep their children at home for the remainder of this school year, they will continue to receive their learning remotely. This is our plan for the remainder of this school year.
Teachers will still be connecting with students through the remote learning plans established after spring break. The goal of having students accessing the school is to support students that may be struggling with their learning and for priority learners that need extra support completing the material.
Accessing the school will be by appointment only. If you want to have your child attend the school to get additional support, please contact the school at 250 782 5585. We will be compiling the information at the office and making arrangements for students to attend on the following days:
• Tuesdays – students with last names A – L
• Thursdays – students with last names M – Z
Monday, Wednesday, and Friday will be reserved for additional appointments or to accommodate students who are not able to attend on their designated day. For priority learners, identified by School Based Team and teaching staff, additional in school learning days, beyond the 20%, may be required to meet their learning needs.
We will be maintaining the block rotation schedule that was established at the end of spring break. Students must arrive to the school no earlier than 15 mins before their scheduled appointments. For bus students, we will work with the district bus garage to make arrangements. Bus students will be attending for a full day.
The health and safety of your child and our staff remains our first priority. Students arriving at the school will be screened for signs or symptoms of illness and will be required to wash their hands upon arrival and before leaving. We have put in measures to decrease physical density in the school including closing common areas, rearranging classroom furniture to meet physical distancing requirements, and directional markings in hallways. Protocols must be followed by students while they are in the building in order to maintain the health and safety of all people in the building.
