Today is Thursday, April 16th and this is Mrs. Godfrey with a few messages from Caledonia Regional. 

Although we are unable to be with our students daily, our support continues for our Caledonia Tigers in Grades 6 through 12 while we are apart. 

The Caledonia Home Learning Plan is posted on our school website and all teacher emails can be found there as well as some valuable information and resources. 

All students in our school have been assigned a teacher advisor who will be a family’s weekly connection with our school. This teacher will be able to provide you with general next steps in learning as well as support for parents and students. Parents and students can reach out to any subject teacher as needed. Our teachers are here to support you and understand that we are all living in a very uncertain and anxious time. We do not want to put any additional stress on families. At the same time, we want you to know that we are available to guide students in their continued learning.

Students can access their student email account from any home device. Instructions for obtaining student username and resetting passwords is available on our website. I have attached the instructions to this message as well as some important phone numbers.

It is important to keep in mind that all students are considered enrolled and will move on to the next grade when school resumes. Students in Grade 12 who were enrolled in the courses required to graduate, will receive their diploma. All students are encouraged to engage in home learning opportunities provided by teachers – to the extent they are able.

Students in Grades 11 and 12 - who are able - may complete the competencies in courses and may receive a notation of ‘credit’ vs. ‘enrolled’ on their transcript. Students who wish to do so are encouraged to maintain contact with their subject teacher. This difference in notation (‘credit’ vs. ‘enrolled’) will indicate to a post-secondary institution that a student has completed the competencies for that subject.  No final grades will be provided. Both notations – ‘credit’ and ‘enrolled’ – satisfy the requirement to be awarded a NB High School Diploma. 

We recognize that this is a shift in learning, teaching, and communicating and that everyone has a unique reality during this global pandemic and a state of emergency. 

Teachers have contributed general resources by subject area.  These are available through the Department of Education – At Home Learning – and on the Anglophone East website.  Teachers may direct students to some of these resources for their home learning options.

These resources can be found at:

We are not currently permitted to allow students or parents access to the school.  Our district is consulting with the Department of Health on how to allow students to retrieve personal items that have been left in the school. I will notify students and parents when more information becomes available.

As I mentioned, there are resources available through the Department of Education, on our district website and on our Caledonia school website. If I can provide you with additional assistance at this time, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Take care. I hope to see you soon.

Donna Godfrey, Principal
