As the provincial government coordinates greater openness in our communities, the Richmond School District is working thoughtfully to prepare our schools to support part-time, in-person learning for the month of June.

In order to plan for a safe and healthy school environment for all students and staff, it is critical that each school is able to determine the exact number of students who will be attending school starting June 1.  ALL parents are asked to please assist us by completing this survey by 4:00 pm on Thursday, May 21 indicating whether or not you plan to have your child(ren) attend: 

Elementary Survey:

Secondary Survey:

Parents who do not complete the survey by the deadline will not be able to have their child(ren) attend school until they have contacted the school principal so appropriate arrangements can be made in advance of a return.  Parents who choose not to have their child attend school during the week of June 1-5 will have the option of having their child attend starting the week of June 8 should they want to do so.  Parents are asked to contact their school principal directly should they change their mind about their child’s attendance at school prior to the end of the school year.

We understand that you may have other questions about what things will look like if your child returns to school.  After your school staff works through all the details, additional information will be provided to you during the week of May 25. We appreciate your patience as we work through the process to ensure a safe learning and work environment can be provided as students and staff return to schools around the district.  In the meantime, please be assured that teachers and educational support staff will continue to provide remote learning opportunities for your child
