Update for Parents April 6, 2020

I hope this post finds you and your family healthy and safe.  There have been many changes in our lives over the past few weeks and education certainly has been affected.  Working from home, our staff members have been writing report cards and planning ahead for the month of April.  

Here are some items you can expect in the weeks to come.  As we move forward I’m sure we’ll revise to ensure things become more efficient.

FOR FAMILIES WITH HOME INTERNET ACCESS

Teachers will be contacting you on April 8 with their learning continuity plan which runs until April 17.  You will receive a plan every two weeks with holidays, etc. being considered.  

Grade Primary to six will receive five hours of school work per week and will focus on literacy and math/numeracy outcomes.  Our middle school students will have 10 hours per week.  There will be 3 hours of English Language Arts, 3 hours of Math, 2 hours of Science, and 2 hours of Social Studies.  Our Integrated French students will have 2 hours of FLA, 1 hour of ELA, 3 hours of Math, 2 hours of Science, and 2 hours of Science Humaines.  Our middle school students are reminded to please check their GNSPES accounts on a regular basis.  

Information regarding curriculum can be found at https://curriculum.novascotia.ca.  

FOR FAMILIES WITHOUT HOME INTERNET ACCESS

The province has created a plan with Saltwire to deliver a supplement work package for grades primary to nine.  These activities have been created with each grade in mind and will offer your child a range of things to work on every two weeks.  Teachers will reach out by phone every two weeks to check in if they have not heard from these students. 

CONTACT WITH TEACHERS

 Teachers will have “office hours” for one hour each day enabling students to check in and/or receive support on anything they might be finding challenging.  Including office hours, teachers will be available via email and will reply in a timely manner. Ann Dunn, our school psychologist, will not have office hours but can be reached at her CCRCE email.  The office schedule can be found below.

 

During our initial planning we have tried to keep things as uncomplicated as possible so I hope this helps at home.  We understand everyone has a number of new challenges on a daily basis and we did not want to add any undue burden.  

It’s a learning curve for everyone and we’ll have to make changes along the way.  I’m proud of our staff who have collaborated these past weeks in preparation for April 8 and I want to thank our school community for remaining positive and flexible.  We will get through this together.  Go Coyotes!

Take care,

Lee Ann Stacey

 

 

Update- March 31, 2020

We hope this finds you and your family well!  Over the past two days our homeroom teachers have been emailing parents and/or students to check in and see how everyone is doing.  Unfortunately some emails have been returned and phone contact has not been successful.  If you have not heard from your child's HOMEROOM TEACHER by Thursday, please contact them through email.  You can go to the Parents tab and click on the Staff Information.  From there, click on your child's homeroom teacher's email to send them an email.  In that way, you'll be added to the contact list.  If you know of someone who does not have home internet access please let them know they should be receiving a phone call.

Please take care!

DWAM Staff

We Miss You-Update March 27, 2020

We hope our students and their families are staying safe and doing well during these challenging times.  Plans are being developed by the DEECD and CCRCE and more information will be made available in the days to come on how best to support our students.  When these plans become available they will be posted on this website and teachers will begin to reach out to students.  Thank you for your support and patience.  We have a wonderful school community and will continue to be supportive of each other!  Take care of yourself and each other.  :)

Extra Curricular Update

Due to the COVID-19 update, all extra curricular and sporting events will be cancelled until the end of April. This including Girls at Bat and Badminton.
