member living in Health Zone 5 or 7, also in the Yellow). Anyone in these zones
who travel to Zone 3 (Fredericton Region), must self-monitor and follow
enhanced mask protocols. They must also follow the parameters outlined in the

5. Rule Modifications for games
- The risk related to exposure to an infected person is cumulative – the more time spent unmasked within 2m of an infected person, the higher the chance of transmission. Modifications are necessary to the game to limit the amount of time that participants are spending within 2m of each other while not masked. To minimize the amount of time spent unnecessarily close to another participant, the follow rule modifications are in effect for all games:
i. Team seating areas should be extended as much as possible to allow for 2m spacing between players when not competing, or 1m if players are masked on the bench.
ii. There will be no jump ball to start a game. The home team will start with possession of the ball and then the alternating arrow will be used to determine possession.
iii. There will be no line-ups for free throw shots. The ball will be given to the defensive team out of bounds on the baseline after the final shot. Teams can run the baseline after a make, but not after a miss.
iv. On out of bounds plays the person guarding the inbounder must be a minimum of 2 meters away.
v. During inbounding situations, the referee will initiate the play by bouncing the ball to the offensive player.
vi. Each team shall keep a “substitution chair” 2m from the scorer’s table. If multiple substitutes are entering the game, one sub sits in the chair as an indicator to officials, with the remaining subs entering directly from the bench. Substitutes may signal to, but not approach the scorer’s table. vii. All sideline inbounds will take place on the opposite side of the court from the team benches. Fans must be seated 2m away from the opposite sidelines (i.e. not in the first two rows)
Good evening SV students and families. Report cards were given out today for Day 1 students. Day 2 students will receive their report cards tomorrow. Please note: a number of students have INC or incomplete on their report cards. If your student has an incomplete your child either has not completed the required work at an acceptable level and/or is not passing the course at this time.
The use of INC on the report card serves the same function as the numerical grade: it represents student progress for the respective Reporting Period. INCs are used when a student has not provided sufficient evidence of learning or the work was not completed so the course is incomplete. The student has to either finish the work or take the course again.
Teachers are finding that a number of students are not completing their assignments and/or learning activities on their Learning at Home days. If your student is not logging on to Teams to complete work or is not completing the assignments sent home, they will be marked absent on that day. Students who are not working on their days at home will not be successful in their courses this year. The school plan for this year is designed for students to be working 5 days a week on their courses.
Please discuss the report card with your student. We will be having Parent/Teacher Conference calls on the evening of November 19th and the afternoon of November 20th. Please call the school at 273-4762 to set up conference calls with your student’s teachers. Please give the admin assistant the phone number that works best for you and teachers will call you at the prearranged time to discuss your student’s progress.
Report cards should be signed and returned to your student’s Homeroom teacher.

Change to ASD-W School Calendar
Dear Anglophone West School District Families,
Please note this important change to our ASD-W school calendar:
- Grades K-8: The Professional Learning Day originally scheduled for February 1, 2021 has been rescheduled to Friday, October 30, 2020. Class for Grades K-8 will now be held on February 1, 2021.
- Grades 9-12: The Professional Learning Day originally scheduled for March 19, 2021 has been rescheduled for Friday, October 30, 2020. Class for Grades 9-12 will now be held on March 19, 2021.
- Please note: there will be no class for students in K-12 on October 30, 2020.
ASD-W has re-scheduled these two spring Professional Learning Days to this October in order to provide additional support to our educators in the areas of technology and learning from home. Our teachers are working hard to ensure they, and their students, are ready to pivot to learning from home in the event of a class or school closure. As some communities in other parts of the province have faced school closures due to the increased number of COVID-19 positive cases, ASD-W is committed to being prepared and to providing quality education in the classroom and virtually.
Please note...at this time, there are no ASD-W schools/communities that fall within zones that are in the Orange Phase. We remain in the Yellow Phase, although there are enhanced mask practices in place for those who have traveled to areas of the province that are currently in the Orange Phase.
