Dear Families,
We hope that you and your family are doing well during this time. It has been a busy week and hope that you and your child(ren) were able to continue engaging in work on Google Classroom. Our staff have been very eager to provide support and feedback on the work which has been submitted. Please take a moment to read the items below, as they pertain to resources that you can access at home and a class placement reminder.

Update for Families

Dear families,

We hope that you and your family are managing well during this time that we find our local and global society in. Your sense of calm, perseverance and resilience will bode well at this time.
As we enter Week 2 of teaching and learning, we hope that all students are able to engage in online learning. This week, families that require technology for students to use will be available for pick-up. Families that have requested technology, via the YRDSB questionnaire, will be contacted by the end of the day on Tuesday, April 14th, outlining the parameters for their scheduled drive-through pick-up.
Wellness and Mental Health
As your family continues to adjust to our current change in the environment, it would be important for everyone to be mindful of ones’ wellness and mental health. You are encouraged to take some time to read through the following information and access the various links as needed.
Actions to support Mental Health
Exercise and eat​ healthy
Maintain good sleep habits
Practice gratitude and mindfulness
Connect with family and friends virtually or over the phone
Prevent and manage stress when it happens

Tips for Speaking with your Child about COVID-19
Home and schools, when they are open, are safe places. School staff work with families and public safety providers (public health authorities, local emergency responders, hospitals, etc.) to keep you safe.

We all have a role to play in staying safe and healthy.

Don’t dwell on the worst possibilities. Although there is no absolute guarantee that something bad will never happen, it is important to understand the difference between the possibility of something happening and the probability that it will affect you or your school.

A global pandemic may be difficult to understand. Doing things that you enjoy, sticking to your normal routine at home. While practicing social distancing, remember that there are other ways to communicate with family and friends (video calling, telephone, social media, etc.) and doing so may help us feel better and keep us from worrying about the event.

Students can be part of the positive solution by participating in healthy activities at home and school when it reopens, learning the messages from public health, and seeking help from an adult if they or a peer is struggling with anger, depression, or other emotions they cannot control.

Some additional Math and Language Supports for home

The Board and Ministry have provided many resources to support learning at home. In addition, last week, teachers began to provide specific learning tasks and learning, through feedback for their students. Also, please don’t forget to access these previously published Ministry of Education Kindergarten to Grade 6 print resources that illustrate several math and language connections that you can try at home.

Some families have contacted the school via email regarding our hot lunch program. Please rest-assured that a process for refunding families will take place once we have direction from the Ministry of Education regarding school-reopening. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
