Week at a Glance

Hello Storrington Stingers,


I hope that this email continues to find you all well and healthy.  We continue to be impressed with the work and motivation of our students and families.  We understand that this is a difficult time and we are very appreciative of everything that you’re doing to keep the learning going.  Thank you for all your hard work and dedication to your child’s growth and development!


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


Assessment and Evaluation

During the remote learning period, students continue to be assessed and evaluated on their understanding of the content provided.  These assessments and evaluations will be used to inform Term 2 report cards.  If your child requires any additional academic assistance, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your child’s classroom teacher.


Attendance During Remote Learning

A reminder that if you know your child won’t be participating in the learning for the day, whether it’s asynchronous or synchronous, please report their absence using SafeArrival or let their teacher know. 


Mental Health Support for Families

As we continue with remote learning, supporting your child’s mental health and well-being continues to be an important focus. School Mental Health Ontario have created a Student Mental Health Action Kit that contains resources which may be helpful to parents and families: 

Noticing Mental Health Concerns for Your Child 

Mental Health Activities to Try at Home


Parents are also encouraged to visit the School Mental Health Ontario website for more resources and activities to support mental health and well-being.  Information can be found by accessing the following website:  https://smho-smso.ca/parents-and-families/
