Depending on age and individual
circumstances, students will have very different reactions and understandings
of all that is going on in our rapidly changing world. Below are some
resources that may be useful in helping your children understand what is happening.
Principles for Talking to Children About COVID - CBE.pdf
Social Story for Children.pdf
Anxiety and Stress - CBE.pdf

Children are now officially on
spring break, so we encourage you and your family to do what works for you
knowing that it won’t be the spring break any of us had planned. If
your children are asking for something to do, you may refer to the ideas
shared by the Calgary Board of Education or use the ideas communicated via
your child’s teacher. Hillhurst staff are going to take their spring break to
refresh and when we return we expect to have more direction as to how schools
should proceed. We will communicate next steps as soon as possible after
our March 30th professional development day.
Take care and stay healthy.
