Superintendent's message for end of school year, plans for fall outlined

Article Posted: Monday, June 15, 2020

Hello ASD-W Families,

June 12 is the last "official" day of school for our 23,000 ASD-W students and we are grateful for the support you provided as children of all ages made efforts to continue with their learning in new circumstances.  It was a learning experience for all of us.

 The Minister of Education and Early Childhood Development (EECD)has released the "Return to School" plan for September, 2020.  The plan outlines the provincial expectations and standards for the safe operation of public schools during the COVID-19 pandemic and as we return after summer vacation.  This two-page document can be viewed here or on our website:  ReturnSchool_ExecutiveSummary_EN.pdf 

Finally, please watch for a final call or connection from your child's teacher or school staff member (Grades K-11).  It is our wish and the wish of EECD to get a comprehensive understanding of technology and other needs to help plan for next school year.  Due to our desire to reach out to the homes of every student, you will likely be contacted more than once based on the number of children you have in our system.  We appreciate your support in this valuable exercise.

David McTimoney, Superintendent​
