Week at a Glance

Hello Storrington Stingers,

 

We hope that this email finds you all well and healthy.  We are all missing our Stingers and can’t wait to see them. We will get back to normal and routine, but for now, staying safe and healthy are the most important things. 

 

We also want to thank all our families for their effort and participation this last week.  It was amazing to see so many of our Stingers online and engaged in virtual learning.  Great job Stingers!


Please see the information below in this week’s Week at a Glance.  

 

Virtual Learning- January 5 to January 14 

On Monday, January 3, 2022, the provincial government announced that elementary students would be returning to virtual learning from Wednesday, January 5, to Friday, January 14.   Classes are scheduled to return to in-class learning on Monday, January 17.   

Families should have received an email from your child’s classroom teacher, with information on remote learning expectations and virtual schedule. Learning tasks will also be posted to your child’s Google Classroom which can be completed and submitted.  

During remote learning, we ask that families continue to check their email for any updates or new information.  If families need to reach the school, you can contact the school as calls will be answered and school voice mail will be retrieved throughout the week.   

We understand that these are challenging and difficult times.  We also know that virtual learning is not ideal for all students and families.  If you require any support throughout the week, please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher through email or through your child’s Microsoft Team.  We truly appreciate everyone’s patience, support, and perseverance as we transition through this process. 

 

Elementary Virtual School

Elementary families who wish to move students from in-person to the Elementary Virtual School, must provide notice. To do this, families must contact their student’s home school.  Registration for the Elementary Virtual School is for the remainder of the school year.

Tropical Spirit Day

On Wednesday, January 12, we encourage all our Stingers to wear something tropical for our Tropical Spirit Day.  Show your school spirit and wear your sunglasses, beach hat, swim trunks or beach shirt.   Although we can’t be together for our spirit day, let’s show our Stinger pride and dress for the sunshine!  For families with Twitter accounts, you are welcome to tweet your child’s tropical spirit day picture.  Please make sure to tag us at @StorrPS_LDSB.
