August 27, 2020 - Letter & Information for Parents

Dear Families:

We hope you and your family are enjoying a safe summer. After six months apart, we are excited to welcome our students back to school on September 8, 2020!

All students are returning to school as outlined in Nova Scotia’s Back to School Plan. To learn more about the plan, please visit www.novascotia.ca/backtoschool.

If conditions change, our approach will change, including a possible move to either a blended learning model or at-home learning model. Public Health will give us direction as they assess COVID-19. Should this happen, we will let you know as soon as possible.

As you may have already heard, there are some key changes coming to school in September. This includes:

  • Mask use for all students who ride a school bus.
  • Mask use for all students in grades 4 to 12 and all staff, when they are unable to physically distance
  • Enhanced cleaning in our schools
  • Increased handwashing and sanitizing as students enter and exit school as well as throughout the day.

Certain measures will become commonplace in schools across our province. I will provide you with more details about what your child’s day will look like for this year in the attachment with this email. Please review this important document as it highlights significant changes you and your family should be aware of for the upcoming school year.

I will be sharing more specific updates before September 8th.

We realize there is a lot of information about new routines and changes. But, there are some things that haven’t changed. We are still committed to providing the best education and support for your child. Our school will continue to be a welcoming space where we focus on positive relationships between students and staff. When you are talking to your child about coming back to school, please let them know we are excited to see them again.

Working together, we can all help students feel safe and supported when they return to school. Let’s keep the lines of communication open to make this a positive year. Please reach out if you have specific questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

T. Knol / Principal

Enfield District School
