Good Evening,

As we begin another week of teacher-led distance learning, I want to once again thank all of you for your continued efforts in teaching and learning. It is important that each of you continue to engage in the learning tasks provided to ensure that we are all on the same page moving forward in September.

I cannot thank our parents and community members enough for all of your support with your children during this time. We know it has not been easy on families and we realized that there are days that you cannot cope with the online learning. We have given your permission to participate as best as you can.

I am proud of our community. We have stayed positive and adapted along the way. We heard from you thank you to staff for the support and connecting with your child(ren). Our relationship as a school community has grown stronger during these times and as a staff, we are grateful for this.

Missing everyone and hope to see you soon!

Updates
