FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Many students across the province will be returning to school on Monday, June 1, including many in Fort St. John, following a two-month suspension of in-class learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to School District 60 Superintendent, Stephen Petrucci, during an interview on ‘Moose Talks’, students will be returning to the classroom on a part-time basis to ensure physical distancing requirements are met.
Petrucci says students from kindergarten to grade five will be attending two days a week, while grades six to 12 will be attending classes once a week.
