COVID-19 Positive Case at Peter Lougheed School
Dear Parents and Guardians of Peter Lougheed School,
I hope this update finds you and your family safe and healthy. We find ourselves in complex and challenging times. This week, we are back as a staff putting plans in motion to connect with students and have them learn from home. We know that this is going to be challenging on many fronts and want to underline the importance of connection and relationship.
This week, your family would have received phone calls from your child's homeroom teacher. The purpose of that phone call was to touch base (check-in), gather some information on your home's ability to learn online and share about the online platform that students will be directed to use over the course of this emergency - world pandemic. Teachers will be calling you from their home. The call will come up as a Private or Anonymous caller. If they are unable to connect with you over the phone, they will be emailing both yourself and your child (email will be sent to their CBE Student Email Account).
Our goal was to have all these phone calls completed by the end of Tuesday, March 31. We know that some of you are in various parts of the world and appreciate how you have been connecting with us via email, your child’s email and through your child’s BrightSpace courses. We have had most of our students able to connect through their new online classroom. We have also been working with families who do not have access to the internet and digital resources and helping them have print resources so that learning continues.
If your child has any personal belongings still at the school from their locker, they are welcome to come with an adult and pick them up. They must be healthy to enter the school.
Please make sure you are keeping informed about Alberta Education and CBE guidelines and expectations during this time. Our school website has updates posted regularly, but as well, you will be receiving system messages from the CBE to parents.
We know that this is troubling and uncertain times. We need parents more than ever as partners in their child's education. We appreciate that we have families in our community with several school-age children, in addition to college and university aged children.
Everyone is being asked to continue their studies from home, away from their teachers. It will be really important that you set up a work schedule with your child that makes sense and is doable for you and your family.
Sharing resources, computers, tablets will all require understanding and patience. Remember, our first priority right now is safety. We all need to take responsibility in caring for each other, our families, our community and our world.
Take care everyone and thank you for all you support.
Mr. Choate & Mr. Parent
RT @UsihChristopher: There are a number of CBE & Alberta Health resources available to help families understand what they’re required to do if their child is sick – when you must isolate, when to be tested, how long you must stay home and when you can go back to school. For info, visit CBE website.
RT @UsihChristopher: Proud of the way the entire CBE community has come together to support the ongoing learning &wellbeing of our students. As the weather starts to become colder, it’ll be more important than ever for everyone to be mindful of the health regulations & to stay home if feeling unwell.
RT @yyCBEdu: It is important for your school to have your most up-to-date email address on file. We also recommend you subscribe to receive all SchoolMessenger email notices from your school and the system.
