March 17 update: Plans for Program Continuity

March 17, 2020

Dear School Families,

On behalf of Aspen View Public Schools, we appreciate your understanding through these uncertain times.

Plans for program continuity

As you know, all K-12 classes in Alberta have been cancelled, and schools are closed to students. For now, learning is ‘on pause’. In the meantime, Aspen View is developing plans for students to continue learning outside of the school environment.

Here’s what you can expect:

  1. Schools will contact all families soon to gather information about:
    1. What method of delivering learning materials best meets their needs (such as email, Google Classroom, paper copies, etc.)
    2. Preferred methods of communication with schools and teachers;
    3. Any arrangements that need to be made to collect students’ personal items from schools.

      Schools are endeavouring to have all families contacted by the end of day of March 20, 2020.

       

  2. Our goal is to have a base level of learning materials available to students on March 30, 2020.

Kindergarten to Grade 6: Focus on Literacy and Numeracy

Grade 7-9: Four core subjects (Language Arts, Social Studies, Math and Science)

Grades 10-12: Academic courses

Physical Education activities for all students

 

Aspen View will look to enhance and expand the focus of learning in the future.

Delivery of learning materials will, as much as possible, be tailored to each family’s needs. This may include email, learning technologies such as Google Classroom, or paper copies.

Schools will work with families to establish communication routines regarding learning support and assessment.

These are unprecedented times, and we appreciate your patience as we move from a traditional classroom to a different learning delivery model. I have heard from teachers and staff across the division how much they value the relationships they have built with students, and we look forward to reconnecting with school families and supporting children’s learning.
