Together in Education Family Update
Week of April 19-25
LANCASTER BIRTHDAY SHOUT OUTS!
MESSAGE FROM YOUR ADMINISTRATIVE TEAM
Thank you to all of our families for their hard work over these past few weeks. Feedback from both families and staff highlights the immense amount of academic, technology, and life learning, the highs and lows, and the incredible things that are happening within our school community. We will continue to share information with families as updates come our way.
VIDEO CONFERENCING GUIDELINES
LDSB Central and Senior staff continue to work on establishing protocols, guidelines and sharing essential information out to the system. Included in this newsletter are two supporting documents for students and families around the use of video conferencing and online platforms for learning at home. Please do take some time to review and share in an age-appropriate way with your child. Now is also a good time to review with students some of the details around on-line etiquette and digital citizenship.
We will be doing a second round of device distribution this week for families that are in need. While devices are limited, we want to ensure that the path to remote learning is eased by having access to the technology that best facilitates learning at home. Please reach out to your child's teacher if you require further support.
Stay healthy and safe,
Lani Fox and Carrie Moore
