SARDIS SECONDARY COMMUNITY INFORMATION
COVID Learning Options
The BC Ministry of Education Return to School Phase 2 plan requires that schools deliver courses and curriculum in a 100% face-to-face model. Given the constraints and impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we believe this model provides the best opportunity for the safety of students and staff, while simultaneously maximizing learning, access to all courses required to support post-secondary goals and the ease of transition if there is a changeover to a Phase 3 model that would include online learning. The current expectation for teaching staff is to focus and support in-class instruction first and foremost while in the Phase 2 model. It would be unrealistic for teaching staff to teach classes throughout the entire school day, and then add on a new requirement to replicate all work & learning outcomes for students who are now working from home; however, staff will do what they can, as best they can, considering each situation and Ministry of Education's Curricular Competencies of the course.
For families/students that are inquiring or considering not attending Sardis Secondary an Octet(s), a Learn from Home Distance Learning option is available with limited support from the school. For further information, please refer to the 2020-21 At-Home Learners Support Plan below. For further questions, please contact your child's Counselor or Vice-Principal for more detail.

As this pandemic unfolds, events such as prom and graduation ceremonies are on "hold." We will wait to see how our collective efforts slow down the transmission of the virus and for all of the provincial orders to be lifted before we start planning for these events in the future.
