Regrettably we must pass along the following update:
Pursuant to s. 2(2) of Schedule 1 to Ontario Regulation 82/20: Rules for Areas in Stage 1 made under the Reopening Ontario (A Flexible Response to Covid-19) Act, 2020, S.O. 2020, c.17 (the “Reopening Ontario Act”), schools (including private schools) schools have been closed for in-class learning through January 24th, 2021.
As such, this update serves as notice that DACS will be closed for in-class learning until Jan 25th when, the Lord willing, we may resume in-class instruction.
Staff has been spending a lot of time this week working on developing a framework for distance learning that aims to be structured and organized striking a balance between the needs of students, parents and teachers. Packages are being prepared over the next couple days with the final details of the framework being worked out tomorrow. Late Friday there should be a Memo Letter going out to all parents outlining how the education will work this time around. Items like attendance and assessment will be a key part of the distance learning this time and will need to be worked with.
- Friday/Saturday – keep an eye out for a Memo Letter from Staff
- Friday/Monday – keep an eye out for the schedule that is being set up for the pick up of books and handouts
- Tuesday – be ready to pick up a package from the school
- Wednesday – Distance Learning at home will commence
A lot has changed in only a few days. We are thankful for the preparation that has been able to get done this week. As our concerns, frustrations and anxieties rise, let us turn to our Lord and Saviour seeking His comfort and guidance.
