Children in British Columbia will return to classrooms two days later than originally planned as part of a gradual restart to schooling, the education minister says.
Rob Fleming said earlier this week that students wouldn’t be expected back on the original date of Sept. 8 to help give administrators and teachers more time to prepare amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Staff will now meet on Sept. 8, while students will be welcomed in classrooms by Sept. 10.
