COVID-19 Hotline

The best way to get answers to your specific questions is by calling your child's school. However, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, all our students attend classes remotely at this time. Thus, increasing the volume of calls and concerns for families.
If you cannot reach your child's school, please call this toll free number 1-877-708-8195, and someone will get back to you within 24 hours. If you need to contact your child's school or teacher you can also access your school website by using the link below At the school site click contact us and staff directory to email staff.

Attendance Awareness Month

Taking attendance and monitoring participation is still crucial for identifying whether students are accessing lessons, or if they need supports to overcome barriers to remote learning. Especially during the Covid-19 pandemic, we signal the importance of school attendance by declaring that September is Attendance Awareness Month.
