Hello Parents,

It’s the last official day of spring break and so we wanted to give you a quick update on where we are at for next week.

A big thank you to the many of you who filled out our survey. If you have not yet had a chance, please do so here: https://forms.gle/BqppG2fr3B7H1rZ29. The information is helping us make plans as a school, as individual classes, and for you as a family.

On Monday, our teachers are going back to work full-time to adjust their plans and finalize how we will deliver educational opportunity to your students. We are committed to providing education for your children and meeting their needs, in spite of everything that is happening around us. We are working on catering to the unique needs of each family to make the best of this situation for everyone.

For students and families next week, we are planning to schedule a time to pick up your child(ren)’s belongings and some educational materials. You will receive direct communication from us on when. For our high school students, next week may also include an introduction on how to communicate with a class online using Zoom and/or Google Classroom. We plan to have more details figured out to start a focus on education for the week of Apr 6.

As information comes from the government, we are adjusting our plans as necessary. The Ministry of Education has given answers to some Frequently Asked Questions, which you may find helpful. You can find it here: https://www2.gov.bc.ca/assets/gov/education/administration/kindergarten-to-grade-12/safe-caring-orderly/bc-ministry-of-education-questions-and-answers-continuity-of-learning-k-12-education_system.pdf.

If there are other things we can help you with, please let us know. Best methods are to send us an email or call (phones will be answered during school hours next week).

Courage to each one of you!
