During the first week of the voluntary, part-time return to school for students across BC, attendance by students at all SD73 schools ranged from about 11 to 18 per cent per day.

“We had a total of just over 4,000 students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 who attended school on-site from June 1 to June 5,” said Trish Smillie, SD73 Assistant Superintendent, Elementary.

For the week, student attendance for elementary schools ranged from 75 to 20 per cent. For middle and secondary schools in the district, attendance ranged from about 35 to 12 per cent. 

Beginning June 1, students in Kindergarten to Grade 5 were able to attend school up to 50 per cent of the time. Students in Grade 6 to Grade 12 were able attend up to 20 percent of the time.

The exceptions to these restrictions are students in Kindergarten to Grade 5 who are enrolled in a 5 day per week program as children of Essential Service Workers, or students in Kindergarten to Grade 12 who are enrolled in a 5 day per week program as priority learners.

The Ministry of Education is tracking student attendance to determine how many are coming to class, without penalizing students who are not attending.
