Elementary Update – March 26th, 2020
Sandy Sheppard, Elementary School Principal
I hope your week of virtual learning has gone well in your household. Please let us know through the surveys sent home if there is anything we can do to support further.
This weekend is a long weekend, so there will be no virtual learning slides for Friday or Monday. You will receive slides for Tuesday, this is the day we start back with our learning. Take a well earned break and enjoy some family time.
Wherever you are we are thinking of you all. We miss our students so much.
As a reminder, everyday, class work will be posted by 4pm by the Elementary school teachers and I encourage you to get into a new routine of checking in on the classwork everyday with your children. In times like this, it’s important to establish a new routine quickly to minimise any interruption in studies. The CDC offers some good advice see here.
Our staff participating in Virtual Learning planning today. Empty classrooms, but learning still happening. Send me a picture of your child Virtual Learning and I will put as many as I can in the upcoming blogs.
Remember – there is no Virtual Learning tomorrow or Monday.
13th – 17th April – no school
23rd April – Progress Messages will be sent out via Seesaw.
24th April – No Virtual Learning – this day is set for an opportunity for parents to talk to teachers – more information to come
