Superintendents Update - SD 47 Restart Plan

August 29, 2020

​August 28, 2020 

Dear Parents/Guardians and Students, 

This is an update to my letter of August 21, 2020 outlining our now approved Restart Plan  for the 2020/21 school year. 

We hosted a successful Virtual Town Hall Meeting on Wednesday, August 26th to collect more feedback to inform our plan moving forward. We know that many families, staff, and students are anxious about school start up. I can assure you safety and providing a quality learning experience is our priority. Through our planning and feedback we have compiled an extensive questions and answers document that we hope will clarify many of the important issues that have arisen through our deliberations. 

Please reach out to your Principal or email info@sd47.bc.ca if you have any concerns or questions. 

This is a new experience for all of us and we need your help, support, and feedback to get children back to a regular school routine that is comfortable and sustainable as we work through these unique times. 


Yours truly, 

Dr. Jay Yule 

Superintendent 

Board of Education School District 47 (Powell River)
