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.
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.
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. https://www2.gnb.ca/content/gnb/en/departments/education/learning_at_home.html
