Hub Learning Update for Families
Dear Parents and Guardians, We are excited to welcome your children back to school this week and are looking forward to see everyone’s smiling faces! There have been a couple of staffing changes this year. We are welcoming Mr. Kwiatkowski to our Grade 5/6 team, Ms. Axworthy is joining the Grade 3/4 team, and Ms. Shuya is joining the Grade 1/2 team until December when Ms. Charland will return from her maternity leave. Ms. Kooner is expecting her second child in November and has made the difficult decision to start her maternity leave early. We wish her a safe and healthy year with her family and soon to be, new addition. We are excited to welcome back Ms. Caughey who will be joining the Grade 3/4 team for the year covering Ms. Kooner’s maternity leave. It is with great sadness that I share the news that one of our staff members, Mrs. McLean, passed away this summer. Mrs. McLean was diagnosed with cancer earlier this past year. We are sharing this information with you today with the permission of her family, hoping that it will give you an opportunity to share the news with your child and support them as needed. Mrs. McLean was a caring and passionate teacher who built strong relationships with students, staff and parents. Her positive impact at Capitol Hill School cannot be measured. We know that the loss of Mrs. McLean will be significant for our school community. It is our intention to honor Mrs. McLean’s legacy within our school community. If parents have particular concerns regarding their child related to this news, please feel free to contact me directly. At this time, our hearts go out to her family, friends and the many students whose lives she touched. On Friday, August 27 you received an email with the Capitol Hill School Re-Entry Plan for 2020-2021, this document details many of the ways we are working to keep students and staff safe at school. Thank you for taking the time to read through this document and familiarize yourself with the contents. Taking time to explain these safety changes to your children will help to ensure a smoother re-entry back to school for them. Online learning registrations closed on August 24th, however, families still had the option to return to in-person learning up until 9:00am today. This means that we will not know exactly how many students will be returning to in-person learning until later today (Monday August 31). The consequence of this deadline is we will not know exact class size and configuration until the end of the week. Therefore, this week your child will return to school and meet with a teacher from their grade. We are hoping that the teacher they meet on their staggered entry date is the teacher they will continue with during the year. However, there is a very good chance we may have to reconfigure classes by the end of the week to accommodate the reduced number of in-person students. This means, the following week, your child may meet their actual teacher for the school year. As soon as we know how the online learning numbers impact our school and classes, I will communicate that with you and share what our plan moving forward will be. Later today, you will receive an email from a teacher in your child’s grade. This teacher will be their teacher for next week and will meet your child at the designated location on their staggered entry day. Thank you in advance for your understanding and flexibility as we navigate this very unusual and complex return to school. Your child’s safety and well-being is of upmost importance as we welcome everyone back. Warm regards Hilary Wright Principal, Capitol Hill School
