On Monday, public school’s back in session in British Columbia — if only for a month. Students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 will return to B.C. classrooms June 1, many for the first time since March break in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. While other provinces, including Alberta and Ontario, have opted to keep schools closed for the remainder of the year, B.C. is one of the few provinces that will see students back in physical classrooms before summer break. “These steps will pave the way for a full start back in September,” Premier John Horgan said on May 15 when announcing the planned reopening.
