We’re sorry that school is closed for the day today. Either the driving conditions are too dangerous for the buses to travel, or the weather conditions are too cold to safely come and go from school.

As we’ve learned from remote learning during the pandemic, there are good options for enjoyable learning even if your child is away from school for the day. You are invited to use the offline and online resources from this webpage to engage your child with some learning today.

As well, you can expect your child’s teacher to reach out to your home today either by email or Seesaw. If you have any questions, please pose them at that time.

Enjoy your day! There’s lots to learn at home, and these options are just a few ways to spend quality learning time during the day.


What can a learning day look like?

In the days while your child is at home, a regular routine will still be very important. The following schedule is a possibility for structuring your day in order to balance learning, practice, physical activity, nutrition, and relaxation.

Remember to start your working day with O Canada!


Offline Learning

We want to stress the importance of home learning occurring away from a screen. In addition to the regular learning work that your child’s teacher may assign, please consider the activities on this document as enjoyable opportunities for rich learning.
