Learning from home looks different than in the classroom. We will be using this page to post information and share resources to support families in learning from home. Together we can ensure that student education continues. We will be posting our daily announcements below.
For Kindergarten to grade 6, our teachers are using Google Classroom. If you haven't received information about this yet, please e-mail your child's teacher directly and they will be able to provide assistance. You can also phone our office between 9AM-3PM and they will be able to direct you to the appropriate person.
For Jr. High students, BrightSpace d2l continues to be the main point of contact. Please ensure you are checking regularly.
We have created optional Phys Ed, Music, and other creative lessons which can be found at the link below. Please note, these are completely optional and will not be assessed.

Jr. High Assessment information
How will Junior High assessment look in the Brightspace by D2L gradebook tool?
All marks have been frozen in Brightspace effective March 15th, 2020. All student projects, assignments and quizzes done prior to this date still stand, and students are still required to hand in any late or outstanding work to avoid receiving marks that may negatively impact their final grade. Teachers have communicated and will continue to communicate any missing work with parents and students and will continue to do so.
Lessons and assignments have been designed with an emphasis on key curricular outcomes and skills and it is expected that students complete all lessons and submit assignments when they are given to the best of their abilities. Students can still expect to get graded for work that is submitted after the March 15th school closure announcement, and teachers will communicate all Learning from Home marks (passing grades or otherwise) in Brightspace which will be calculated cumulatively with all work done prior to March 15th, but only work that improves a student’s mark will be considered towards their final adjusted grade on the progress report. Teachers are aware of this in their gradebooks and will ensure that only marks that will raise the cumulative average will be entered for the final progress report. This decision is to provide as much information as possible to students, parents and teachers about student progress, but also to acknowledge that families and students may be dealing with unique circumstances that makes Learning from Home difficult at this time.
Students must remember that entering an individual assignment with a high mark does not necessarily correlate to raising an overall average; weightings on individual curricular items can determine how a mark will change. It is also important that students not to confuse engaged learning, progress and success with “marks”. It is important to understand we are conducting assessment for learning, and encouraging students to have a growth mindset. This hopefully emphasizes the importance of perseverance, engagement, effort, resiliency, and growth. Students who focus on these areas will improve, learn, and be more prepared for school next year.
