Vaughan Voice

Campus Parent Communication - August 14, 2020

Greetings Vaughan Families!

What a great first week of school! It was wonderful to see so many smiling faces! While we realize it may have been a struggle to access the technology, understand the platform/content, and things may have been somewhat slower than anticipated, we did it! Teaching and learning virtually is a new experience for all of us, and our staff and students ROCKED it! Please continue to give us grace as we work through familiarizing ourselves with this new learning experience.


Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns. We are so proud to be serving your families.
