Principal's Message

The Stress of Learning from Home


The Stress of Learning From Home
During this period of class cancellations, I want to remind all of our learning community that we must remember to be kind to ourselves and each other.
Now that classes are not face-to-face, our teachers are planning ongoing learning tasks and assessing those tasks in new ways, trying to be mindful of the current stressors in our world. We recognize that families have many different responsibilities and concerns during this time. The ongoing learning activities that teachers are preparing for students are not meant to take the place of what would normally be happening in our schools each day. As we plan learning activities for students to engage in remotely, we are trying to consider what is reasonable and manageable for all students and families.
With this different way of learning from home, assessment also looks different. Teachers are, and will continue to be, providing students with regular feedback, not necessarily daily feedback. Please recognize that our teachers are also learning this new way of “doing school” and are spending many long hours thoughtfully preparing activities for their students, responding to parent and student questions, as well as taking part in ongoing professional development.
The Alberta Government has mandated 5 hours of learning activities per student per week for students in Kindergarten to Grade 6. This is an 80% reduction from the time spent in the regular classroom environment. Please recognize that in this short amount of learning time each week, teachers are focusing on what we are calling “essential outcomes” from the core subject areas. This means that our focus is on the big ideas/key learnings students will need when they move to the next level.
If parents wish to work with their children in exploring learning opportunities beyond the essential outcomes, I would encourage you to consider the many suggestions available through the Calgary Board of Education website under the title “Ongoing Learning”.

Thank you for continuing to support us as we work with your children! We understand that ongoing learning may be challenging for families and we want to thank you for all of the work you are doing at home. Please be kind to yourselves and remember the mandate of 5 hours of learning activities per week. That is all we are expecting of students during this period in time. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher, Mrs. Bennett or myself if you require further support.
We miss seeing our students at school each day and want to remind you of the parade we have planned for Monday afternoon. Please see our news story for more information on the parade route.
Students, parents and staff working together - Midnapore School continues to be an awesome learning community!​
