Messages from the Disctrict of Learning Services

 

Plan for the coming weeks:

 

  • Week of March 30 to April 3, 2020: To start the week, we suggest that you view the message from the CSF’s Superintendent, Michel St-Amant, by clicking on this link. The week of March 30 to April 3, 2020 is a planning week for teachers, so please do not contact them at that time.
  • Monday, April 6, 2020: You will be contacted by your child’s teacher and he or she will give you details on the week of April 6 to 9, 2020. The goal for this week will be to make initial contact with your children, ensure that they are doing well emotionally, and suggest some activities for them. Please note that in order to take each family’s specific circumstances into account, meetings with teachers and suggested activities will be optional.

 

To organize their distance learning classrooms, teachers may use the tools of their choice (Zoom, Teams or FreshGrade). Please note that if your child’s teacher uses FreshGrade, this platform will be a communication tool only (no proof of learning or evaluation), for the time being.

 

Instructions on the distribution of technology equipment will be sent to you shortly. If your child (grades 4 through 12 only) did not bring their iPad or iMac home before spring break, you will have an opportunity to go and pick it up from the school. Your school principal will send you details on the procedure to follow to pick up your device. It is important to take the time to familiarize yourself with the tools your child’s teacher will be using. If you are not familiar with them, tutorials will be available on the CSF website.

 

During this time of uncertainty, please know that the Conseil scolaire francophone cares about your children. Be assured that we are doing everything we can to support them in continuing with their education. Please watch for the next messages from the CSF.

 

Between now and the first contact with your child’s teacher, here are a few online resources you may wish to explore with your children.
