I hope this email finds you all feeling well.
Please find, attached, an update letter from the Department of Education.
We are part-way through calling all families to verify contact information and to collect some other information such as technology access. Thank you for your cooperation as we go through this process, especially as some of our staff are calling from their homes. Once we have updated this information, students and families can expect to receive updates directly from teachers.
Our staff have very successfully made the transition to meeting and collaborating online to plan for instruction resuming on April 15! We've been so happy to see the number of students joining our noon daily prayer and engaging with other content on our Instagram page.
Near the middle of next week, we will:
- Begin the process of allowing students/families to collect the contents of lockers so that students will have their learning materials all together at home. This will be accomplished by curb-side pickup or delivery;
- Encourage all students to log in to our student portal and ensure their user name and password are working correctly;
- Share information related to whether it will be possible, in certain circumstances, for families to borrow school technology. The number of devices and chargers we have to loan out is limited.
Until then, please don't hesitate to contact us, by replying to this email or emailing email@example.com, to ask any questions or share comments and concerns.
Ryan Sikkes, principal and Jeanette Gallant, vice-principal
