Spring Update

​Dear Cambrian Heights School Families, 

We hope you are all staying well, and connected with one another. As we enter our second month of remote learning, I know our staff misses seeing your faces at school! I want to encourage all of you to continue to practice self-care as you engage in your remote learning, and engage in learning tasks as much as is reasonable for you and your family. As well, please continue to stay connected to your classroom teacher. Our staff is available to support you and your child through D2L/Brightspace, Google Meet, email, paper packages, or by telephone. Staff have been using a combination of these formats to meet the needs of our diverse learning community. Should you require further support, please reach out to your classroom teacher, or to me. Each of our teachers has set aside 'office hours' during which time they can provide further learning support to your child. Our staff is quite flexible, and are happy to work with families to personalize your child's learning needs. We also have support staff members who can support as well, as directed by teachers. The best way to reach your child's teacher is through email, and if a phone conversation is easier for you, please include the best contact number and time to call in your email. We have very much appreciated the feedback about remote teaching and learning, and continue to learn what works best for everyone. Thank you so much for your support and patience!

We have had many inquiries about what school will look like in September, and the best answer we have is that we just don't know quite yet. Our CBE leadership team takes direction from the ministry of education, as well as Alberta Health Services. Our CBE leadership team is considering many different scenarios for the time when we are told it is safe to return to school. The same is happening at the school level. We will communicate to you plans for September as soon as we can. In the meantime, staff are working on transition planning and student support for a variety of different scenarios. For our new kindergarten families, and for students new to our school, we look forward to connecting with you in June, likely by phone or digitally. Please do check our website and SchoolMessenger messages to ensure that you are receiving the most up-to-date information available, as things change quickly right now! If you have any questions in the meantime, our office is open from 8:00-2:30 for phone inquiries. 

As always, stay safe, stay strong, and stay positive!

-Kevin @MrWhitsClass
