Cambrian Heights School Families - We miss you! While our sudden class cancellation was somewhat unexpected, please know that our staff are thinking of you all. We are a strong community, and will undoubtedly be back together in the near future.
In the meantime, some words of advice for parents and caregivers: Remember that it is important to take care of yourself as well as your child during this challenging time. While there are benefits to having your child continue with learning experiences at home, and to creating some consistent routines for students in your day, please ensure that the experience remains positive for everyone! There are many types of learning, and we know that children learn about different things, and in different ways at home than in the classroom. We know that they do not interact with their parents the same way that they do with their teachers. I would encourage families to explore some of the informal CBE Learning at Home resources that have been provided system-wide, and determine what makes sense for your child, and your family's situation. Formal lessons may or may not be the best way for your child to learn at home, and what works for your child at school may not necessarily work for them in a home learning environment. Please recognize this, and understand we know you are supporting your child in the best way possible! Thank you!
We would like to thank you for your patience as we at CBE determine exactly what next steps for learning will look like, and how teachers can support this. It is very important that we are taking this time to be thoughtful, and measured in our planning. Teachers have been working at school and at home to finalize their assessment of students' latest work. As we receive direction from our CBE leadership, we will continue to share information with you. Please be sure to check classroom blogs regularly for updates from teachers. Already there are learning resources that you can use from now through spring break.
CBE has also begun to put together some resources you can use to support the well-being of everyone during this time. It can be difficult to talk with children about this pandemic. Please do explore the Positive Mental Health page on our CBE corporate website.
Please have a healthy, restful spring break! Take care of each other.
All the best,
