Talk Mail - April 5th - Learning Oppurtunities

Good evening, by now you would have read the message from the Minister of Education regarding the Continuity of Learning Plan. We are keeping at the forefront, the reality that New Brunswick is in a state of emergency as a result of a global pandemic, I urge you to keep that reality in mind as we work in these difficult circumstances to educate your child. The announcement of school closure for the remainder of the school year has created a scenario that we have never found ourselves in before. We are doing our best to adapt to this new reality.

Late last week, the BMHS teaching staff and teaching teams had virtual meetings to start working together to offer learning opportunities for our students that we missed so very much. The teachers are eager to get this going, but they will need this week to organize themselves as they are learning in doing things in a very different way. We ask for students, parents and guardians to refrain to communicate directly with teachers as they need this time to prepare the home learning options for students.

This week, starting on Tuesday, all students and/or parents will be called by their homeroom teacher. The purpose of this call is to assess the students’ readiness for learning. Making these contact homes are important to create the best learning plan possible for all Highlanders. We will be starting to send home these learning opportunities after Easter weekend.

We are working closely with Public Health and the District to put a plan in place to allow students to pick up their learning and personal belongings at school.  Please stay tune for more information about this.

In the meantime, I encourage you to visit the “Learning at Home” resource web page created by EECD. You can find the link in the letter that went home on April 2nd or on the district page.

I appreciate your cooperation,

Stay Safe and Healthy…
