BCTF President Teri Mooring said a lot of what schooling looks like in June depends on how many students actually show up.
When students board the school bus on Monday in Williams Lake they’ll be greeted by a bus driver wearing a protective visor and will take a seat by themselves unless they live with another student.
Parents who take their kids to school will be asked to stay outside or make an appointment to reduce the number of adults who don’t need to be in the building.
Superintendent Chris van der Mark of the Cariboo-Chilcotin School District said in an interview these are some of the first differences families will notice, as schools across British Columbia increase capacity to more students.
Schools will have consistent procedures for site access, cleaning and hygiene and physical distancing. However, exactly what that will look like will vary because every school property is different, he said.
“This won’t be perfect, but just as people adjusted to the initial suspension of service, I am confident we will do so again,” he said in a letter to families May 22.
