Welcome to the 2021-22 school year! We are very excited to be welcoming back our students and families in a few short days. Please know that the staff at ÉSCS has been working hard to ensure that the transition back to school can be as smooth as possible. Our number one priority is to make the safety, health and well-being for all students, staff and families a top priority and we will continue to offer a number of procedures and protocols to achieve this goal.
Another important back to school priority is relationship building between staff, students and parents. An important step in building relationships will occur through this year's virtual Opening Day Conferences starting Tuesday, September 7th. Parents have received an email sharing the goal of the conferences as well as steps on how to register. Please contact the office at (204) 253-8199 if you have any questions. Also related to relationship building, as in previous years, our staff will spend the first few weeks of school establishing structures and routines while getting to know each student and the group as a whole.
Teachers will continue to plan for and provide high-quality learning and assessment for all of our students. They will continue to be creative in their teaching approach and will incorporate play-based learning, inquiry, technology, etc. into the school day to meet the needs of all learners. We acknowledge that, like last year, this will look different than it has in the past.
Please note that we have been working on a "Start-up Plan" for the school year but we still await some important updates. As soon as we have all of the pertinent information, we will forward it to our parents. We understand that there are some unanswered questions about what the school year will be like and we empathize with you as we understand how this impacts your planning for the year. We appreciate your understanding and patience.
