This is an unprecedented time in our lives. There is a great deal for us to consider as a staff, school, board, and province, as we try to move to teacher-led distance learning for the foreseeable future. All levels are aware that there is much to consider and many variables at play. Your patience as we navigate this global pandemic while trying to attend to the needs and best interests of the whole child (i.e., academic, social/emotional, physical, and spiritual) is very much appreciated. We acknowledge this is a very stressful and disconcerting time for both adults and children.

Over the next two weeks, educators across the province are working toward teacher-led distance learning. At the end of the two weeks, we hope to have a more formal understanding of the expectations for teacher-led learning and assessment from the Ministry of Education.

In the interim, classroom teachers have been making contact with all St. Agnes families this week, through D2L, Google classroom, email, phone call, etc. to determine if any families require internet access and/or a learning device for their children. Please be sure to check regularly for updates from your child’s teacher (e.g., email, D2L, Google classroom) as we aim to connect with every family by the end of the day on Friday, March 27th.

The Ministry of Education has provided the Learn at Home portal and the WCDSB is sharing WCDSB Steam Days. We are encouraging you to utilize these resources at this time.

Continue to monitor our website, Newswire, Twitter (@StAgnesCES) for any updates.

On behalf of the entire St. Agnes staff, we wish all of our families good health and wellness. We miss your kids! We miss the spirit of community that is St. Agnes, and we look forward to being together again in the days ahead. Be well!
