The Provincial Government announced that K-12 classes will resume on January 4, 2022. As scheduled, “but in an online learning, virtual format.”
Updates will be provided each Thursday, beginning January 6, 2022, with respect to classes the following week.
As you know, schools and families have adjusted to virtual learning in the past, but each time they may encounter unique challenges. There will be inevitable glitches and connectivity issues, but it will get better as we go. Meanwhile, please take advantage of the NLESD with resources for families, students, and teachers, and reach out to your school administration if there are any issues.
Schools will prioritize in-school attendance and services beginning with those students not accessing the prescribed curriculum (alternate curriculum and alternate curricular courses).
Students in Grades 7-12 are expected to use their District-issued Chromebooks for online learning. However, to be clear, a student does not need a Chromebook to access online learning. For students in K-6, for example, online learning can be accessed through most personal laptops, tablets, desktop computers and smartphones.
The Newfoundland and Labrador English School District, along with your individual school administrators and staff, thank you in advance for your patience, understanding and support as we navigate this latest COVID-19 challenge together.
