April 2nd - Parents & Guardians Important Update!

Update

Dear Parents and Guardians,


Yesterday, you would have received an email message from our Director of Education, Camille Taylor-Williams which can be found at:

We are thinking of all of you and hoping your children and you are safe and well.  Next week, staff will be beginning Phase 2 of Learn at Home which means that our students will work for approximately 3 hours of work per course per week.  Students in the credit bearing stream will focus on achieving credit completion/graduation. Students in non-credit bearing programs will continue to receive support in their learning (e.g. life skills,  literacy, numeracy, health and active living, and communication skills). Staff will be leveraging digital resources and using alternative forms of student-teacher connectivity such as phone and mail as appropriate.  The District is working on a plan to distribute laptops/chromebooks and/or other devices from schools as needed in the community, while observing public health directives.  


ONFE https://onfe-rope.ca/ and The Education Foundation, are working collaboratively with the City of Ottawa to ensure that Breakfast Kits will be available for students/families in need at local food banks.  If you are in a position where you and your family are in need of food, please do not hesitate to contact the food bank nearest to where you live at 613-745-7001 or using their website:  https://www.ottawafoodbank.ca/get-help/

 

Your children’s teachers and educational assistants will continue to reach out to you to support.  Our intent is not to overwhelm you or your child with communication but to provide as much help as we can.  Our focus is on the wellbeing of our students. Please let us know if we can help. We miss all of our students and hope that we get to see them soon.  We will be sending students a similar email today as well.

 

Sincerely,


Andrew Cumberland, Jason Rama and Jennifer Perry
