Effective March 17 in-classroom instruction was suspended indefinitely in all schools across BC. Please know that many groups and individuals are working diligently together to ensure communication and the continuity of learning continues. This is an unprecedented and significant undertaking.

On behalf of parents and members, President Andrea Sinclair and CEO John Gaiptman attend all regular meetings/calls with the Minister of Education Rob Fleming, Deputy Minister of Education, Scott McDonald, and all the key stakeholders in the K-12 education sector (unions, ed partner associations, First Nations associations, and independent school associations). 

Please don't speculate, jump to conclusions or make assumptions. Rely on factual information. As parents/guardians in public education, your trusted and accurate sources for K-12 information are BCCPAC, the Ministry of Education, your School District, your local DPAC, your School staff and your PAC. Know who and where to direct your inquiries...and no its not into your echo chamber on social media or opinion/analysis pieces in mainstream media.

The Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Education have been providing regular updates. The Ministry of Education per consultation with the PHO Dr Henry is working with the sector on coordinated response under these guiding principles:
- Maintain the health and safety of students and workers
- Providing services and communicating to families especially those of our essential health care workers
- Supporting vulnerable students including those with diverse abilities and disabilities
- Continuity of educational opportunities for students
