Over the past three weeks, the Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows School District has been providing Essential Service Worker (ESW) childcare and educational support for school-aged children (5-12 years old) of Tier 1 essential services workers. Eligibility for these services was assessed through our first ESW survey, which was open from March 26 to March 30, 2020. Recently, our ESW childcare and educational support program has been expanded to include children of Tier 2 essential service workers.

The school district is now conducting a second Essential Service Worker (ESW) survey to further assess community need. This survey is open to Tier 1 and Tier 2 essential service workers and will CLOSE on Friday, May 1, 2020 (4 pm).

 * This survey is now closed *
