VCPAC News
On March 17, 2020 the Ministry of Education announced that K-12 in classroom instruction will be suspended indefinitely while the province works to manage the COVID-19 pandemic. We know that many parents have questions and concerns about the education of their children in the coming months. Provincial Leaders and School District Administrators are currently working together to discuss potential options and the appropriate course of action moving forward. On behalf of parents in our District, VCPAC is in contact with and will continue to liaise with the Superintendent and appropriate SD61 staff during this time. 
 
For parents who have any questions, concerns or thoughts about the current situation and plans for the future, VCPAC has set up a designated email address   from which we are collecting parent feedback that VCPAC will take to the School District to advocate on behalf of parents and students in our region.
 
To ensure your family stays informed, about the current situation within SD61, updates (when they are made available) are posted at:  https://www.sd61.bc.ca.
