Principal's Message

Communication with School

​GP Vanier staff are making contact with students and familes to inform them and link them with on-line learning via D2L and the student Google Suite.  In some cases, e-mail messages are bouncing back; some primary parent contact adresses may be out of date or suspended during the Covid pandemic.  If you are not receiving messages please contact the school to update records so that we can ensure that we stay in touch.
Over the next few days teachers will be creating opportunities for students to connec via Google View and will be sharing their 'office hours' - times whan students can call, e-mail or video chat in real time to get support and answers.  Teachers wil also be working to personalize activities for students based on conversations.  We encourage you to set up a regular work space for your child, and to help them to the best of your famiy's ability to follow a learning schedule daily.  This can include PE Breaks - Ms. Johnson is creating and sharing a D2L shell for all students with ideas and links for staying active.  
There are many virtual resources available to families while we are all in isolation - here are a few you may wish to have your child explore:

Many more are appearing every day.
As always, if you have questions or concerns, or need help connecting with support for your child, please contact the school.
We hope that you are keeping safe and healthy and look forward to returning to 'Vanier as Normal' as soon as possible.
