March 27, 2020,

Dear Parents/ Guardians,

During these unprecedented times our Windsor Administrative Team would like to provide you with an update on what to expect over the next week as we continue to plan for continuity of educational services during the suspension of in-class instruction. We acknowledge that this is a challenging time for everyone in our Windsor community, and we appreciate your focus on the health and well-being of your family. We thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to plan for our students and staff. While instructional delivery will look different moving forward we recognize the importance of maintaining a sense of connection between students and teachers.

Our first priority is the health and safety of our school community, including students, staff, and families. During the week of March 30-April 3rd Windsor will NOT be open to students and parents. Please do not send children to school. Over the next two weeks, schedules will be established to allow for students, if necessary, to collect personal belongings and/or resources. Controlled access to the building is required to ensure social/physical distancing and to keep people safe.

As referenced in the letter received from Superintendent , Mark Pearmain on March 26th the Ministry of Education has asked school districts to prioritize the following guiding principles:

  1. Maintain a healthy and safe environment for all students and families, and all employees.
  2. Provide services to support children of essential workers.
  3. Support vulnerable students who may need special assistance.
  4. Provide continuity of educational opportunities for all students.

Our District has been working over Spring Break to begin to define continuity of learning for our students. This process will take some time as we continue to collaborate virtually with our staff to create a framework and communication plan.

To assist parents with planning please see the following timeline:

  • District and Windsor staff will be collaborating virtually and will continue planning for educational continuity the week of March 30-April 3.
  • Windsor Teachers will begin to connect with students (via phone, email, or other) toward the end of the week.
  • Windsor Administration will be sending a message to staff and parents/guardians on Friday April 3 with an update for the following week.
  • A new NVSD website for parents to help support their children and their learning will be launched late next week.

Please click the Ministry of Education Frequently Asked Questions for more information on Continuity of Education in the K-12 Education System.

If you have emergent and/or specific questions please contact your child’s grade administrator by email.

We wish to thank you for adhering to the rules around social distancing and for the support you are providing to family members and friends. Together, with kindness, compassion and connection we will get through these unprecedented times.

Sincerely,

Brenda Bell, Principal – Grade 12
