It is the first day of the provincial education pause, and all of our doors are closed... for now. We want to say to all Chinook teachers and support staff: thank you for your dedication, care and commitment to students. It’s been a tough week, and we know you are eager to get back to teaching and supporting your kids. We know you already miss them and care very much about their learning and well being.
Parents: you are not expected to homeschool or teach academics to your children. We are working on learning supports and resources with our education sector partners and your teachers will be in touch with you once there is a plan.
Encourage your children to read and tell you all about the characters in the story, involve them in household tasks and home projects, play a board game, start a puzzle, get your teenager to help with budgeting and tax returns (bonus, maybe they’ll do your taxes for a discounted rate next year!), find a virtual tour or live zoo feed online, and enjoy some daily exercise together indoors or outdoors, while maintaining appropriate social distance.
We will post ongoing updates on our social media platforms and website. Stay healthy and safe, and we will see you all again soon!
