Ontario School Closure extends to May 4th
Please see the letter below which outlines the announcement by the Minister of Education to extend school closures until May 4th, 2020.
Stay Connected with your Child’s Classroom teacher
During this extended school closure it is critical that you maintain regular contact with your child’s teacher. Over the course of the past week, every classroom teacher at St. Agnes has been working diligently to connect with their students. Despite our best efforts, we have not achieved 100% success. We are experiencing full mailboxes, bounced emails, or inaccurate contact information. If you have not connected with your child’s teacher please send an email using our staff directory found on the St. Agnes school website. We are committed to reaching every single student in our community and appreciate your help.
Beginning Monday April 6th, teacher-led learning will commence across the province of Ontario in a virtual environment. The only way for teachers to share this information with families/ students is by posting in the virtual classroom (e.g., D2L or Google Classroom). Over the course of the school year, your child’s classroom teacher has provided login information to parents and/or students directly (depending on age and grade of child). If this information is not known to you, please contact your child’s teacher directly at your earliest convenience.

Congratulations Ms. Brohman!
Today, March 31st, 2020, is Ms. Brohman’s retirement day. We wish her all the best as she steps in to the next phase of life as a retiree. She promises to come in to the school for a proper send off and celebration when it is safe for us to do so. In the meantime, we hope she enjoys the sunshine, spring showers, and fresh blooms that come with the rebirth of springtime. We will miss you, Ms. Brohman, and wish you many blessings in the days ahead.
While we transition to a new teacher for Ms. Brohman’s class, we will continue to run Ms. Brohman’s virtual classroom on D2L. Parents are encouraged to stay connected via NewsWire and D2L at this time. The new teacher will be introduced to the class on D2L, and will take the time to reach out to families as soon as possible. We ask for your patience as we navigate many IT difficulties due to the COVID-19 working environment. In the meantime, parents are invited to contact Mrs. Reesor directly with any urgent concerns or questions. Rest assured, your child does have a classroom teacher beginning Wednesday, April 1st. Mrs. Watchorn, and Mrs. Watorowski will continue to be the Early Childhood Educators for your child’s class. Ms. Lazarevich remains the Planning Time teacher (PE, Music, Art, Health) and will provide programming and support for students, as well.
We wish all of our St. Agnes families good health and wellness at this time. We hope you can take a few minutes to see our shared staff message.
