UA Goes Back To School

We are pleased to share with the UA community our ongoing plans to keep students and staff healthy and safe. We have been working diligently on our plan to meet the guidelines in BC’s Back to School Plan and following the directives from the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Health and the Provincial Health Officer. We hope that this document will provide the information that students, parents and guardians require to understand the protocols that are in place to ensure everyone's safety. All members of the community will be required to follow the protocols outlined within the plan in order for it to be successful.

Please find the Urban Academy Return To School Plan by clicking the button below. The plan is being updated on a regular basis as new information and guidelines emerge.

Welcome Back Messages For Students

In advance of the first day of school, UA will be distributing welcome back messages to Urban Academy Students. These brief videos will be created for each specific grade group and will outline some details of what students can expect when coming back to school. They will meet some UA staff, see the entrance/exit doors and stairwells they will use to navigate the facility and be given some instruction on when and where they will be wearing their PPE. We are looking forward to helping students feel well prepared and safe in their return to school!
