Parent Notice-Continuation of Learning and Technology Support

Dear Parents and Guardians of Leo Hayes Students,

 

The faculty and teaching staff of Leo Hayes are well underway in the planning, co-planning and gathering of e-resources to offer Continuation of Learning of opportunities to our students.

We have established a process for reaching out to families staggered across the school week. By the end of next week, you should have had contact in some form from your child(ren)’s teachers.

Please be mindful of that the continuation of learning at the high school level is just that-learning opportunities provided to your students in an on-line forum. Teachers may use the technology they are most comfortable with, such as Fresh Grade or Microsoft Teams, or group e-mails, etc. The majority are reporting they will use Microsoft Teams, a free extension of your student’s Office 365 account. It is imperative that your student access their student e-mail and password to get notifications and emails and have access to free Office 365 connected to their student email. Students are already added to teams via their school username.

Student Office 365 including your Student Outlook E-mail can be accessed through directions in this link: https://secure1.nbed.nb.ca/sites/ASD-W/LeoHayesHigh/Documents/How%20to%20Access%20Student%20Email.pdf

If you do not know your user name and password, please see Information from District IT in the text box here:

Txt: Send a txt message to 1-506-325-8460 , IT staff will respond and help you get access to your account, password or electronic resources.

Email: Use the District email address weststudents@nbed.nb.ca you can initiate a support call of your own.

Learning opportunities are to focus on core subject areas identified last Thursday by the Department of Education: Literacy, Numeracy, Science/Technology, History/Social Studies, and Second Language. Other subjects can provide learning opportunities as well, should students wish to continue learning in those courses. Currently, the mental and physical health of our students matters most. Students are not expected to do schoolwork beyond 2.5 hours a day on their core areas, with an additional 30 minutes of reading and 30 minutes of physical activity recommended as well.

As more information is developed and forwarded to us as we progress through this unprecedented time, we will continue to communicate with you.

Please continue to monitor the LHHS website!​
