Hi Everyone

The BLOG is short this week. Thx for reading it.

As per the government's earlier announcement, we expect to learn Wednesday Jan 20th if we are returning to "in school" classes on Jan 25th. Stay tuned.

Families of elementary students (Kindergarten-Grade 8) who would like to switch learning models (i.e., in-person to virtual or virtual to in-person) effective March 1, must complete the Change in Delivery Model Form. The form is open now until Friday, Jan. 22 at 11:59 p.m. This form is only for families wishing to switch learning models.
