Principals' Update - Nov. 30, 2020

​Dear parents,
 
Hard to believe it is December this week, holidays are fast approaching! I hope you are all safe and looking forward to some time with family.
 
This week:
    Monday November 30 – Student Learning conference booking opens
    Thursday  December 3 – Student Learning Conferences 4:30 to 7:00 pm
    Friday December 4 – Student Learning Conferences 8:00 am to 1:00 pm
 
SHOUT IT OUT!!!
Thank you to all the staff and students who participate in kindness week! It is amazing to see all the great things we do in our community.
 
COVID update
I know many of you are feeling anxious right now about sending your child to school. As you have seen this past week we had students test positive for COVID. When this happens you will receive a Pre-Alert letter from me. As there is a time lag between when the school is notified by the parent and when AHS processes the case. This results in multiple letters for each case. All these notifications can get confusing and it may seem like there are more cases than there actually are. Additionally when there are 2 or more cases it is declared an outbreak; which results in more letters!
 
At this time we have 2 students who have tested positive and all measures that need to have been taken are underway.
 
When a student tests positive the following happens:
1.    School is notified either by the parent or CBE/AHS personnel
2.    The principal works with CBE and AHS to determine when the periods of contact where, and who are the close contacts. These people are then notified
3.    After this, the general school community receives a letter to indicate there is a positive case
4.    A few days later, when AHS had reviewed the case, this process repeats – resulting in each family receiving additional letters for the same case. (this is where things can get confusing)
5.    If there is more than one student who tests positive potentially an outbreak is declared and another set of letters.
 
Every time we have a positive case the exact same process is followed, even if the 2 cases are from the same household or the same classroom, they are considered 2 separate cases and this process is followed separately for both.
 
After each case is determined, a special cleaning crew is sent to the school for a detailed and deep cleaning of all impacted areas.
 
To date we have not at any in school transmissions at Dr. Roberta Bondar. I am proud of how well our students and staff respect the protocols and the great job they are doing of protecting themselves and each other.  We will continue to keep you as informed as possible as we work through these challenges together.
 
Parking update
Thank you to all the parents who have taken up the challenge to improve the traffic situation before and afterschool. The past week was much better! Keep it up. HUG and GO is working extremely well also so take advantage of it!
 
December Activities
Between school council and our teachers, we have a number of activities planned for the school community in the weeks approaching the holiday. Some are geared towards holiday fun and others are to support our goal of connection and gratitude. There will be more information coming out about these in the coming days. Get out your Santa Hat and Ugly Christmas sweater is that time of year!
 
 
Online Learning
The week after the Winter Break we will be moving to online learning. This will be in place until January 11, 2021. At this time there are a variety of learning platforms and communication systems being used through out the school and district. It is important we develop consistency for all students so we are able to support families, teachers and schools in this transition. To this end all Online Learning will be taking place on the Google Classroom platform from Dr. Roberta Bondar, and all communication to families will be through this format or messenger. It is very confusing for families with multiple children to be expected to know and follow numerous systems.  As we get closer to this date we will be working with families to be sure they are able to log in to Google Classroom and have the technology needed to continue learning while we are away from school. More information will be coming as we work out the details.
 
Have a great week.
Please reach out should you have any questions or concerns.
