Home Learning - Week of Apr. 6


The Minister of Education has introduced a plan to help students learn from home.  It is suggested, where possible that elementary students spend approximately an hour a day engaged in learning activities.  Parents are asked to play a key role in their child’s learning.  It is understood that in our current circumstances, some families may not be able to support the suggestions given.

Home learning options will be made available on-line.

K-2 students will spend an average of an hour a day where possible, focused on literacy and numeracy. Physical activity and free play will also be part of their mental health and skill development.

Grades 3-5 will spend an average of an hour a day where possible, focused on literacy, numeracy and science. In addition, a half hour of reading and a half hour of physical activity is recommended.
