High School Families and Students,
April 12, all high school students will return to daily in-person
classes. Teachers will be welcoming all students back to full-time daily
in-person learning. Only students with medical documentation and
previously identified as vulnerable will continue learning at home.
While the synchronous or home
learning component is being replaced by daily face-to-face learning, students
should continue to bring their laptops to support their in-class
learning. Teachers will continue to use the new platforms and tools so
that in the event of a school closure due to an outbreak, classes will be
offered on-line for all students. Posting materials on TEAMS to enhance
learning, and the use of on-line tools which support best practices in
assessment and instruction will be encouraged.
High School Operational Plans
will be updated to reflect changes that will be in place when students return
to in-person learning on April 12. This includes all staff and students wearing
masks except when eating or while engaged in physical activity, masks on the
school busses, teachers having a consistent seating plan for each class,
drivers having a seating plan for each of their bus runs, and additional spaces
being identified for students to use at noon and during breaks.
While our high schools will not
be hosting traditional end of year activities this year, such as proms, award
ceremonies, Baccalaureate Services, traditional graduation ceremonies and Safe
Grad, they will be working within Public Health and Public Safety protocols to
ensure students are properly recognized and celebrated during this important
milestone. Please note that graduations will be scheduled in the month of June
2021 and will abide by all NB Public Health and Public Safety requirements in
effect at that time. Families of graduates will receive specific school
information later this spring.
Thanking you for your on-going
support as together we work through the pandemic.
