Principal's Welcome Message


Welcome students, parents, guardians, caregivers & members of the community to the school year at Abbotsford Senior Secondary School. Under the shadow of the COVID-19 pandemic this will undoubtedly be another unique school opening and school year.

 The good news is that school is opening. Face-to-face instruction for our students begins and countless hours of planning have been invested in preparation for this opening. Preparations have drawn on the expertise and direction of the British Columbia Public Health Officer and British Columbia Centre for Disease Control, have been coordinated by senior staff in all areas of the Abbotsford School District, and have been adapted to meet the specific context and conditions of Abbotsford Senior Secondary. Our plan is comprehensive in providing safeguards for the health of our students and staff. It also creates rich and flexible opportunities for our students to engage in their learning and safely re-engage with their peers and with school staff, following all provincial and district health and safety guidelines.

I am looking forward to meeting and getting to know every member of the Abby Sr. community. A special welcome to our new grade nines and any other students who are just beginning at Abby Sr. I know that we will get through this together, and that we and our school will emerge stronger for having to focus on looking after each other.
Best wishes for a healthy and successful school year.
