As announced today, public schools will be ending formal learning on June 5 2020. Throughout June and the coming summer months, the situation will continue to be assessed for schools to open in September. For additional information on the school closure, the provincial press release is available here: https://novascotia.ca/news/release/?id=20200508005

We know there will be many questions and details yet to be worked out, such as accessing schools and Grade 12 graduations. Please know that more information will be shared as it becomes available.

We know the last number of weeks have been a challenging time. We want to thank you, our parents and guardians, for your support in helping us to provide learning opportunities to students. You have been remarkable, and we appreciate all your support.

We also want to thank our students for their strength and openness to learning at home. We acknowledge these times have been challenging for you as well. We look forward to coming back together as a community when it is safe to do so.

Again, more information will be coming soon. We appreciate your patience and support as we work through how to bring the school year to a close on June 5 while maintaining COVID-19 health protocols.

On April 28, the Premier of NS announced that public schools will remain closed until at least the long weekend of May (May 19) and then will be reassessed. 

At-Home Learning will continue to be provided to families to help support learning opportunities during this time. We understand this is a challenging time for families. Learning at Home is not meant to add more stress. If the learning plans are causing additional stress, please contact your child’s teacher or principal to discuss. To read more about Learning at Home and to find the most recent Learning package, please visit https://www.ccrce.ca/news/learning-home.

Thank you to our staff, parents, guardians and students for your undertstanding as we all work together to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
