The Langley School District was expecting nearly 6,200 students but welcomed nearly 5,000 during the first week of classroom instruction which started June 1.

“It has been a positive and smooth transition overall,” Stewart said. “We hope both in-school and remote learners will continue to have success during this challenging time.”

“Due to the many changes this term has brought us, families should expect that June report cards will look different from those in past years,” Stewart explained. “The report card is a snapshot of the learning for the term; however, no single document can encompass all a student has achieved.”

Final report cards for elementary and middle students can be access online through MyEDBC starting Thursday, June 25. Paper copies of report cards will not be provided.
