Today sees the beginning of our second week of teacher-led distance learning. Teachers, students and parents reported a good start to our new, temporary reality; however, as could be expected, there were some challenges too. Please be sure to communicate with your child’s classroom teacher should any issues or questions arise. We are committed to ensuring your children continue to receive grade specific, curriculum-based learning tasks, consistent with the Ministry of Education’s guidelines, during this period of distance learning. Your children will also receive feedback or assessment of their learning, from their classroom teachers, that will continue to move their learning forward. Some parents have inquired whether distance learning is optional. Please note that distance learning is NOT optional. It is taking the place of regular classroom learning and the expectation is that all students will complete the learning tasks provided by their teachers. Some parents have chosen to augment distance learning with resources such as those found on #STEAMDays , WCDSBLearn@Home, the Ministry’s Learn at Home website, or purchased resources/workbooks. These are all great ideas, but please remember your child’s first learning priority must remain the school work provided by their teachers.
Wishing you all a Blessed Easter Season,
R. Kavanagh D. Lynch
Vice Principal Principal
