This is a reminder that home learning will be launched tomorrow, Monday, April 6th. CMS students and parents should visit the “Home Learning” tab on this website, which will go live tomorrow morning. All home learning information for this week will be posted before noontime.
We recognize that these are different and sometimes difficult times, and some days may be more challenging than others. We also understand that not all parents will be able to support their child(ren)’s learning to the extent that is being suggested by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development. Please remember that this is perfectly okay! Suggested daily average timelines for learning are as follows:
• Grade 5: 1-hour academics (English Language Arts and Math). Students are also encouraged to try to read a minimum of 30 minutes and to participate in 30 minutes of physical activities. We will also be providing suggestions for mental wellness.
• Grades 6-8: 2-hours academics (English Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies). Students are also encouraged to try to read a minimum of 30 minutes and to participate in 30 minutes of physical activities. We will also be providing suggestions for mental wellness.
All along your home learning journey, remember that we are here to offer support. Parents and students are encouraged to email their subject teachers with any questions regarding academic learning; teachers will be checking and answering emails throughout each workday. Parents and students may also contact the guidance counsellor, resource teacher, principal and vice-principal with other questions or concerns. All email addresses can be found on this website on the “Staff” tab.
If your child is having difficulty accessing learning resources online, they can reach out for support in one of the following ways. They should include their name, school name, grade number and type of support they require in the request.
• Text: Send a text message to 1-506-210-0127. IT staff will respond and help you get access to your account, password or electronic resources.
• Email: Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
• Teacher: If a student has the means to email their teacher, the teacher can initiate support on their behalf.
