Covid-19 Update

Dear Families,

I hope you are all doing well and I hope this message finds you and yours healthy and safe. Our own staff families and I are safe at home working through these times. As a staff, we want you to know how much we are missing our daily interactions with our students but we understand during this unprecedented period we must stay home for our safety and the safety of others. Like many other homes, we are focusing on learning real life skills, staying safe as a family both mentally and physically.

In preparation for a provincial plan for learning at home, we are gathering information about the possible needs of students and families to be able to complete work at home. Please let us know through a return e-mail to your student’s homeroom teacher if you are set up adequately to do some work at home through technology…namely if you have a computer with the Internet. It would be helpful to know if many household members share technology.  We are trying to ascertain the best was to deliver curriculum to all members of our school community. As the Learning Plan from the province is announced, I will be in touch with more details.

Homeroom teachers will now be the point of contact for our students.  Their emails are listed on our school website under the link named “Staff Directory”.

Please put your student’s name and homeroom number in the email reply to help staff stay organized and efficient.

If I do not receive a response from you within the next few days, I will attempt to contact you again.
