Dear Vanier students and families:
Many of you have heard by now the Minister of Education’s update on the return to school that was provided last week.
If you haven’t, the bottom line is: In Whitehorse, Grades Kindergarten through 9 students will return to school for full days, every day and Grades 10 through 12 students will attend half days, every day and continue to learn from home during the other half of the day.
These changes will allow us to maximize physical distancing and minimize the “mixing” of students within the school as these are the best practices with regard to public health and safety.
This will look and feel very different from what we are used to and we appreciate all our students’ and families’ understanding and flexibility as we implement these changes.
There are many details to work out to make this plan work. I’d like to share some of the broad aspects of what the return to school next month will look like that we know at the moment. More specific details will be shared in the coming weeks.
Overall health and safety principles:
The school will be split into two groups: Junior School (Grade 8 & 9) and Senior School (Grades 10 through 12).
Shift 1, Block 1/2 Class
Shift 1, Block 3/4 Class
Shift 1, Block 5/6 Class
Shift 1, Block 7/8 Class
Shift 2, Block 1/2 Class
Shift 2, Block 3/4 Class
Shift 2, Block 5/6 Class
Shift 2, Block 7/8 Class
In the meantime, please feel free to reply to this email with any of your questions or concerns or send them to email@example.com. Please, at this time, do not send questions about a student’s timetable or “shift” as these have not yet been determined.
