Hello once again Husky families!
We hope that you have had a wonderful holiday break.
As you know, the province has decided to move to distance learning at this time for a period of at least two weeks. As a result, most students will begin working and learning from home on Tuesday.
The expectations for what is required looks different depending on what level your child is currently at:
K-5 - Students will be learning primarily using work from home packages that will be prepared by your child's teachers. These packages can be picked up at the school anytime between 11:00 and 3:00 on Monday, or by arrangement with your child's teacher. Homeroom teachers will be checking in with your child on a daily basis. Please let teachers know which is your preferred method of contact (Teams, email, phone). It is asked that your child read every day and get 30 minutes of physical activity in addition to the packaged work that is sent home.
6-8 - Students will be learning primarily online through Teams. If your child is unable to access the internet or is without a technological device, please contact your child's homeroom teacher as soon as possible so that a work package can be prepared for them. Required work packages can be picked up at the school on Monday between 11:00 and 3:00, or by arrangement with your child's teacher. It is asked that students at this level read for 20 minutes a day and get 30-60 minutes of physical activity. Students are required to check in with their homeroom teacher once each day so that attendance can be taken.
9-12 - Students will be learning exclusively through Teams. High School students that have been identified as not having access to the internet will be invited to attend school in person for the next two weeks. If you do not have the internet and are not contacted, please reach out to your homeroom teacher so that bus arrangements can be made for you to attend in person. High School students with the internet but no device are asked to please contact their homeroom teacher so that a loaner device can be arranged. Paperwork needs to be signed by a parent or guardian for devices to be loaned. High School English students are asked to please make sure they have their journals at home with them. Grade 9-10 Math students will require a textbook. Any High School students that need to pick up items from the school may do so on Monday from 11:00-3:00, or by arrangement through their homeroom teacher. Attendance will be taken during each class period.
I know that this is a lot of information, so if you have questions please contact your child's homeroom teacher for clarification. Email addresses for all staff can be found on the school's website.
Have a wonderful weekend!
