This communication is to inform you that Monday, November 30, 2020 is the date of our annual Elementary staffing re-organization for all NNDSB schools. Re-organization occurs every fall in response to evolving enrollment data, to optimize class sizes and to accommodate ministry staffing guidelines. This year due to the impact of COVID-19 and the creation of the At-Home Learning Program/Virtual School, this process has been delayed. As in prior years, the re-organization process may result in changes to your child’s class and/or teacher.
Following the registration window, families who completed the transfer application process requesting their child move between in-person (classroom) and at-home (virtual) learning programs, will begin their new placement on November 30, 2020. Please note, this date is a change from the previously communicated start date of November 23, 2020. Students will continue to be supported by their current educator until the re-organization has been completed on Monday, November 30, 2020.
We understand these changes can be difficult for students and families. School and central staff are working to minimize the disruption of learning and make this transition as seamless as possible. The alignment of these processes (remote learning transition and staffing re-organization) will help to ensure minimal disruptions to families and allow continued commitment to the COVID-19 preventative measures.
Please do not hesitate to contact your school or remote learning administration if you have any questions regarding this information.
