CALVIN PARK UPDATE
Week of April 26-30, 2021
Dear Calvin Park Parents and Guardians,
Thank you for supporting your child in their on-line learning this week - we know that these times are not easy ones so we appreciate that everyone is doing what works best for their family. We love seeing students connecting online to continue their learning.
We are excited to share that on Tuesday, April 27, from 6:15-7:15, our School Council has organized a timely presentation by our LDSB Mental Health Lead, Laura Conboy, focusing on how parents/guardians can support your child during this time and some of the resources that are available for families. This meeting is open to all of our families so we will send out an email message on Monday with the meeting link if you would like to join.
If your child is not participating in online learning on a specific day or needs adjustments to the online learning schedule, please contact your child's teacher. Also, if your child is absent and you wish to avoid receiving an automated attendance call, please enter your child's absence using SafeArrival.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or if you need additional support (email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 613- 542-2796). We are also able to offer food and clothing support so please call or email us if we can be of assistance.
