Parent Message – August 21

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Thank you so much for your engagement in last week’s parent survey. We appreciate that you took the time to give us feedback.

At present, we continue with our plan for full-time, in-person learning for students, as well as a fully remote learning for those families who choose that option. This in-person learning will be in regular-sized classes, ranging anywhere from 12 to 30 students. We will be requiring masks and working at as much distance as is possible in a given room.

We make these plans with the knowledge that, this year, internal and external conditions may require us to shift and reevaluate. If there is a second wave of Covid-19, we may all find ourselves learning remotely again. We will continue to follow the direction of Public Health and the Ministry of Education as we make these determinations.

This week, we’re going to let you know about the next steps in getting September Ready. As well, you’ll find an overview of the parent survey feedback and answers to some of the most common questions about the upcoming school year.

One more important note: we are going to have a staggered start.

This start will allow for a little more elbow room as students get used to the new routines for being in the building.

  • Students with last names from A to L will attend school on Tuesday, September 8. 
  • Students with last names from M to Z will attend school on Wednesday, September 9
  • All students will attend daily starting Thursday, September 10

We will continue to be in touch with you weekly, sharing updates and procedures as they develop. Next week, you’ll hear from us about class timetables.
