Hub Learning Update for Families
Dear Parents and Guardians, As we arrive at the end of June, I would like to thank you once again for your continued understanding and support at Briar Hill School. Please accept our sincere appreciation for your patience and perseverance over the last few months of the 2019-2020 school year. We know that each of your challenges and triumphs during this unprecedented time have been unique and we commend you for embracing opportunities to learn and grow together. We wish we were able to share more definitive plans for the fall. However, given our current context, we must add layers of flexibility in all areas of our planning. We continue to work on the details of what the next school year will look like for students and staff. More information will be shared in August after the Minister of Education announces which re-entry scenario schools will follow. It is important to note that our classes are scheduled to begin on Tuesday, September 1, 2020. Our 2020-2021 instructional calendar is now available on our website. As was the case this year, we anticipate having eleven (11) classes at our school in the fall. The following is our tentative grade/class configuration for 2020/2021: Early Learning Division 1 Division 2 K-AM K-PM 1&2 1&2 1&2 2&3 3 4&5 4&5 4&5 6 This configuration may change by September depending on enrollment numbers at that time. We will share more detailed information about our configuration, including teacher assignments, in late August. You can anticipate a welcome email from your classroom teacher(s) prior to the first day of classes.
Again, we thank you for your ongoing support. We deeply value your contributions to our community of learners. On behalf of the entire Briar Hill School, we wish you all a safe, joyful, and healthy summer. Sincerely, Stephen Hart
