What does this mean for families?
To prevent the spread of COVID-19 in Nova Scotia, all public schools remain closed for the 2019-2020 school year.
At-home learning continues for students until June 5.
Many of you have reached out to ask when your child’s personal items can be retrieved from schools. At this time, schools are not accessible. When it’s possible to access schools safely, we will let you know.
I want to thank you – and your children – for rising to this incredible (and unprecedented) challenge. I recognize the overwhelming pressure that families have been under and always remember that the well-being of your family should be your top priority. Learning-at-home is meant to offer opportunities to learn during a pandemic, not to replicate school. If you find that it’s too much for your family, please reach out to your child’s teacher or principal.
Wishing you a safe and restful weekend,
Regional Executive Director
