Dear T.M.P. Parents/Guardians and of course… our wonderful students!

I want to start by saying we hope you are all well and coping with these new challenges. Classroom teachers have been reaching out to families to make sure they are fine and to see if you have access to internet, if you have not heard from your child’s teacher or if your situation changes at home, please reach out to your child’s teacher or me .  It is especially important that we know if your phone number or email address has changed.  Thank you!!

In the days ahead you will be receiving information in a couple of different formats. The Department of Education is sending out a Learning Package for Primary to Grade 9 students who need learning materials that do not require any technology.  This will come in a booklet type format with the flyer packages you normally see in your communities. They will be in every pack of flyers in the province beginning next week, April 6th-10th.  Some communities receive these at their door and sometimes you pick them up from a box by the mail lock boxes. If you decide you want this version and you do not get the flyer package you can call the flyer company to have them delivered (902-678-9217). Each home will receive one copy so if there are multiple students at home they will need to share the package. The teacher will work with you to decide how to monitor the student’s work since the package does not get returned to us. The package also has instructions printed on it. Teachers will have copies of this and they will be prepared to support students who are completing this work, if necessary.

If you have access to internet and technology, teachers will also be able to provide different learning opportunities to your child through technology, mainly email. You are not expected to do both packages and you can choose the option that best suits your family. Not everyone has the same technology and that’s ok. The same is true about our teachers, some have high speed internet and some do not. Depending on your availability to technology and internet, you will be communicating with the teacher either by phone, text or e-mail to decide how to share the work in ways that work for each situation.

There will be some challenges and we are here to help you through them.  However, if you feel overwhelmed by this process, PLEASE remember you are not obligated to have your child complete school work if it adds too much stress to your family.  The most important thing to us is that every family stays safe and healthy in all respects. 

Teachers will be reaching out to you throughout this process, but if you need to reach a teacher and you do not have access to email, we are asking that you phone the school’s main line (902-792-6720) and we will get the message to the teacher so they can call you.  Allow some time for this process since the secretary is also working from home.

Thank you for your support and cooperation as we are all working through a process that is new to everyone.  I can’t emphasize enough that we want this to be as stress free as possible!  Also, I am asking everyone to be flexible and patient as we venture into this new territory together!

Sincerely,

David Campbell
