Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians,

Your support and feedback over the last two months, as we’ve moved our classes online in response to COVID 19, has been greatly appreciated and we look forward to celebrating your achievements in just a few weeks time. Our staff are planning ceremonies for our graduating students and we look forward to sharing more information about the timing and format of those events in the near future as we continue to practice physical distancing.

As many of you are aware, BC is adopting a 5-stage process for reopening its classrooms with the goal of eventually returning to full student attendance. Under this plan, students in Grades K-5 will attend school part-time with only 50% in attendance and students in Grades 6-12 will attend one day a week, on alternating days, with the remainder of their classes being offered online. In the event that transmission of COVID 19 increases, BC will move to previous stages to ensure the safety of its teachers and students.

For the Fall term, VJLS-JH classes will be online only so that we can ensure the safety of all of our students and to minimize disruption in the event that the risk of COVID 19 increases and requires the closing of the school again. We will re-evaluate the situation in December and inform parents if we believe it will be safe enough to resume in-person classes starting in January. VJLS 2020-21 Class Schedule

Although we hope to welcome students back to our classrooms, we do not want to do it too quickly or in a way that would put them or family members at risk. We will continue to monitor the updates provided by BC Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry and inform parents of any changes that might occur.

Please note that at this time Children’s World programs fall under a different set of health guidelines and we will be able to offer our regular pre-school classes starting in September.

We are all looking forward to welcoming you back to your next year of classes in September after a wonderful summer break. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at


Darius Maze, Executive Director
