Year End

 

Dear Second Street families,

This is a very strange way to say good-bye for the year, but it is in keeping with what we have been experiencing since March. Due to the Covid -19 pandemic, we have missed out on some things such as our year end assemblies and slide shows, but we have managed to celebrate others, such as the leaving of our grade 7 students.

The sense of closure that we normally feel at the end of the year seems not to have happened and I feel that the school year may start in a similar manner in September. We do not know what school will look like in September as that is determined by the Ministry of Education and the Provincial Health Organization. September is too far away for them to forecast so we will need to wait until late in the summer to find out what school will look like.

If you were provided with a laptop to use during this period of remote learning you may keep it until we return to regular school hours. If you would like to return it to the school before that you may do so this week or Monday, Tuesday, or Thursday next week.

Most years we begin placing students in classes in June. With the uncertainty of what school will look like next year and with significant changes in enrollment, we are holding off until September to form classes. Students will return to their class from this year when they return in September. There will be more information on this hopefully in late August.

Teachers will be here tomorrow, Thursday, June 25 to complete handing out report cards and to say good-bye to those students we have not seen. If the report card desn’t get picked up you can call the school and we make sure it is available to you or hold on to it until September.

On behalf of the staff, I would like to wish all of you a happy and safe summer and to extend a heartfelt thank you for all you have done to support your children and the staff throughout the year.

Sincerely,

Jeff Hutton

Principal
