Our ‘Spring Break’ is nearing the end and we sincerely hope everyone has enjoyed their time. As announced by the Premier of the Province this past Monday, the return to school this week will be remote. We have done this before and we can do it again!
Monday, April 19th ~ Asynchronous Learning Day: This will be our first day ‘back to school’ and students will be engaged in asynchronous learning. This day will be like our adapted learning ‘Snow Days’. Teachers will post work on their Google Classroom by 9:30 am for students to complete during the day.
Tuesday, April 20th ~ Synchronous Learning Begins: We will proceed with our regular school bell times. Teachers will post their class schedule on their Google Classroom that includes blocks of times with other teachers. (e.g., French/Phys. Ed/Health/Music/Drama/Dance etc.) Attendance will be taken both morning and afternoon. Synchronous teaching does not mean that teachers and students are in front of the camera for the entire day. Synchronous teaching involves some time for a lesson and then even some possible asynchronous work for the students with the teacher being available for questions from students, either through email or an open meet link.
We extend our gratitude to you AGAIN for your continued support and we recognize that you are also doing your best to adapt to the changes and possible challenges. We are working together and all want what is best for your child. Please do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher if needed.
Please see the attached Virtual Code of Conduct to further help support your child’s learning remotely.
