OES Weekly Announcements March 27, 2020
Onoway Elementary - A Web of Supports School - Touching Tomorrow Today
Celebration! Thank you to our amazing OES families for the cooperation and coordination of picking up student work packages and technology. We are happy to report that we only have 6 out of 470 work packages left at the school for pick up! In many cases, students have had contact in their new google classroom. If your child has not yet been in their online learning environment please have them prepare for this to begin on Monday, March 30th, 2020.
What will this look like? Teachers will be explaining the online learning environment, setting expectations and building student skills, so that when we start back after spring break, students are ready to begin their online learning.
While we find ourselves shifting from daily school routines to our new online learning world, we want to assure you that we are trying to create the best possible way for our kids to stay connected and supported. We know that there is an expectation that learning will continue, we also know that this is a difficult and stressful time. PLEASE, remember, we are in this together and we are here for you. Our staff can be reached through their email, and through either the SeeSaw platform (K-2) or Google classroom (gr 3-7). Our office hours at school are 9 AM to 3 PM, so do not hesitate to call or email us if you should need anything.
Stay informed: for all reliable and up to date information regarding COVID19 please see Alberta Health Services for assistance and support.
