Principal's Message

Back from Spring Break

​Hi Dr. Coffin Families,
Welcome back after a rather unusual spring break for all of us. I hope everyone has remained healthy and you have found creative ways to stay connected with family and friends. My family has taken to video chat on a regular basis to stay connected and be able to ‘see’ each other – a very different approach from our usual family gatherings.   I am working at school along with Mrs. Rennie and Mr. Rozema. Teachers are working from home and are connecting with their teaching teams to plan and design learning for our students.
Alberta Education has outlined expectations for continued learning at home for all students. Teachers will assign an average of five hours of work per student per week for students in grades Kindergarten to grade 6. The content of this learning will focus on language/literacy and mathematics/numeracy. Teachers may also incorporate science and social studies through cross-curricular learning at the higher grades.
Thank you for your patience as we work through some necessary planning in preparation for resuming learning opportunities for our students. I understand there has been plenty of uncertainty about what teaching and learning is going to look like moving forward. The teachers will be connecting through email with all families before the end of today to gather information for planning for learning in a different way with our Dr. Coffin students.
Please know we will work together to create a great learning environment for all our students. The health of your family, both physical and mental, are most important and our school community is here to support you. If you need our support, please reach out to your teacher or myself.
Stay healthy,
