With students starting back to school next week

Gearing up for back-to-school

Public schools and most private schools in Surrey will begin the new school year Tuesday.

Labour Day’s approach means a long weekend for many people, but it also signals something else: The inevitable start of school.

Public schools and most private schools in Surrey will begin the new school year Tuesday (Sept. 8) after a two-month-plus summer break.

All elementary classes (Grades 1-7) begin at 10 a.m., but will end earlier than usual. Dismissal times must be confirmed with individual schools.

Kindergarten children are on a gradual entry schedule for the first week, so start dates and times should be verified with schools.

Secondary school students also have a shortened day Tuesday, but again, hours vary from school to school.
