SD59 Superintendent Is Excited to Welcome Back Students

welcome back

September 8, 2020

Dear Students from Christy Fennell, SD59 Superintendent
(Parents/Caregivers please direct your child to read this or read it to them.  Thank you.)
 
Welcome Back!
 
We have finally arrived at our first week back to school.  For some of you this is your first time back since before Spring Break.  We are excited to see you and we have missed you.  We can’t wait to show you our new way of doing things.  You probably already know that your school will look different on the inside and some daily routines will change. You may have specific entrances to go to, different breaks and lunch times, and you may be told that you have to stay in a certain area while using the playground.  Even though things will be different, I know that you will adapt to these changes and still have fun while at school.  Plus, you may even find that you like some of these new rules, because with less students on the playground, you might even get more time to spend on your favourite equipment or playing your favourite games.

SD59 is Responding to Parent Concerns About Return to School Options

September 4th, 2020

On September 10th students will be returning to classrooms for in-class instruction.  Schools have been reaching out by phone, e-mail, and posting information on their social media and school websites that outlines what returning to school will look like. 

For parents who still have concerns about returning to in-class instruction,  please connect with your principal who can guide you through the process of what options and support the District can put in place for your child.  The District and our schools are working hard to be flexible, address concerns, and provide supports that meet the needs of all students and parents in School District 59.  

If you have considered options outside of our district or homeschooling, please contact your school principal or Director of Instruction Paul Chisholm, to discuss your concerns prior to making your final decision.  We can provide you with information about what the District will be offering to parents and children who have concerns about returning to face-to-face instruction.  

Please check the SCHOOL DIRECTORY for your school's contact number, or contact Director of instruction, Paul Chisholm at 250-782-8571.
