Students are getting an extra week of spring break – thanks to COVID-19
During the week of March 30 – April 3, parents are asked to keep their children at home as staff plan for a continuity of education.
“Everyone at School District 59 understands the impact of this decision will from vary family-to-family. We remain focused on doing all that we can to ensure the safety of your children. As the Minister of Education has indicated, we will work to develop ways to ensure children’s learning continues,” noted officials in a statement Wednesday.
During the time remaining in spring break, district staff will work with the Ministry to develop a plan that meets our needs locally. On return from spring break, school staff will take time to solidify plans and put them into action.
“The week of March 30 – April 3 is expected to be a planning week for School District 59 schools. Student learning will continue. It will look different.”
