17/03/2020 - Canadá - British Columbia - Abbotsford - Cierre de escuelas indefinido [EN]

Dear Partners,

As you may have been informed, this afternoon Minister Rob Fleming directed that all in-class instruction across the province of BC will be suspended indefinitely to help contain the spread of COVID-19. 

The followings were mentioned in today’s briefing: 

  • Every student will receive a final mark;
  • All students on track to graduate this year will graduate;
  • The province is working with post-secondary institutions to make sure the transition for our grade 12 graduates is supported;

We know that you, our partners and our international students and their parents have many questions right now.  The Abbotsford school district is working with all our partners in this to help build the plan.  We will get back to you with our plan and some answers to your questions in a few days.  In the meantime, please check our district website below regularly.

We would appreciate your cooperation, patience, and understanding to keep everybody as safe as we can. 

Respectfully,

Elizabeth Cho-Frede

Manager of International Program

Abbotsford School District
