Message for CMSD82 Parents/Guardians from our Superintendent of Schools:
For your information and interest, Coast Mountains School District 82 developed an alternative back-to-school plan for parents/guardians of Kindergarten to Grade 9 students who are not comfortable with sending their children back to school right away due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
These are very challenging times and we understand that some families need more time to become comfortable with the safety protocols implemented by their schools.
This new Learn-from-Home Transition Plan will have students remain enrolled in their neighbourhood school and start the school year at home before transitioning back to the classroom. To clarify, this is not a fourth option for educating children … this is a extension or a subset of Option 1: Brick and Mortar (Traditional School).
Important notations for parents/guardians to know regarding the new transition plan:
- This a “temporary” plan intended to keep students connected to their school. Students would work on literacy, numeracy and core competency skills.
- This will not mirror the classroom.
- Families would be responsible for supporting their child’s learning at home and there would be weekly check-ins by a Transition Program Teacher.
- It is the school district’s expectation that families would transition back to school by the end of October/beginning of November.
We have developed a K-9 Learn from Home Transition Plan “information sheet” for the information of parents/guardians:
The following illustration provides an overview of the Learn-from-Home Transition Plan:
Parents/Guardians are asked to contact their School Principal should they have questions or they require more information.
