While engaging our community throughout the summer, we heard a resounding focus on prioritizing safety, maximizing learning – whether in school or at home, and providing equitable access to resources and supports.
We are committed to delivering on these expectations and through continued collaboration, transparency, and flexibility, we will successfully meet student needs during these unprecedented times.
Term 3 started on February 1, and all schools are offering a variety of in-person programming for students.
Our Planning Principles
Prioritizing Safety by putting in place robust health and safety protocols for staff and students.
Maximizing Learning by providing rigorous and joyful learning experiences every day — in school or at home.
Promoting Equity by ensuring every student has access to the supplies and supports they need for a safe return to learning.
