Covid Information

Throughout the Spring, the MoE/ VCH/ VSB and school provided updates as to the status of schools, teaching and learning, June restart and year end. This is a summary of some of those communiques. For further information, please go to the VSB website and follow the appropriate link(s). We have not included school communications as those are archived (by date) in our blog posts or were sent directly to parent email addresses through our SIS MyEd BC (meaning you already have a record of them).
