Dear Parents and Guardians,
As we prepare for the end of another school year and look forward to the summer of 2022, I want to thank you for your valued contribution to the education of your children.
The past two-and-a-half years have been difficult for everyone; our home and work lives still look different than they did in February 2020. I am proud of the way Near North District School Board (NNDSB) staff and students reacted to the COVID-19 pandemic and embraced new ways of teaching.
That also meant that NNDSB students and families had to embrace new ways of learning. Family support is imperative to education and our students couldn’t have managed as well as they did without you in their corners.
I want to congratulate NNDSB’s 2022 graduates who begin their journeys into the community, post-secondary, apprenticeship or the world of work. To all, the best of luck in whatever your future holds. I am confident that the education you received at NNDSB will serve you well on whatever path you are on.
It appears that the next school year will look and feel much as it did in the fall of 2019; I am reluctant to use the term “normal” but have hope for a return to a more familiar way of teaching and learning. I hope all of you take time during the break to reflect on the challenging time we have been through, and enjoy a safe, healthy and happy summer.
NNDSB’s monthly Letter to Families will resume on Friday, Sept. 2, 2022, and priority news will be shared as necessary through the summer.
Director of Education
