Parent Update for Week of June 2nd

Dear Parents & Guardians,

Earlier this afternoon an email notice from the school board (OCSB) was sent to all parents regarding the provincial government’s announcement today regarding the extension of the school closure (June 2nd Message from OCSB).

All students will continue to learn remotely for the balance of the school year. Our school community will continue to follow the daily structures currently in place. We know that, for many, today’s announcement is disappointing news. We continue to be encouraged by the commitment of all of the members of our school community - our students, staff and parents. We’ve entered the final stretch of the school year and we are confident the effort and dedication will result in a successful conclusion to the year.

As well, here is a copy of the updates that were sent yesterday (includes links to parent registration events)

Thank you.

Message to Students about April Remote Learning

Hello Frank Ryan Students.

As you are aware, next week (April 19th-23rd), we will be doing all of our learning remotely.

Attendance will be taken for every class, so it is important that you log in and participate. If you are absent for any reason, make sure your parent calls the school ahead of time to inform us. On Monday morning, by 11:30 a.m., you will receive an email from your homeroom teacher with a schedule for the week. It will be similar to what we did this past January. The first class will not start until 12:30 on Monday. You will have an opportunity to connect with all your teachers on Monday for about 15 minutes (Day C). For the rest of the week, (Tuesday-Friday), school will begin at 8:00 a.m. and finish at 2:10 p.m. as it has been all year. We will start the day as we always do with Anthem and our daily prayer. Reminder that you need to be logged into your OCSB google account to participate in the class google meets and access your items on Hapara. If you have any questions, make sure you ask your teacher. They want to help you.

Students are encouraged to review the following short video tutorials on Monday morning.
