DGH community, please note the information below regarding DGH (and all public schools in Ontario being closed until May 4, 2020). This information was sent out via our SchoolMessenger email system; however, I know many of our parents use our website and Facebook page to learn about DGH information. ALSO – THERE IS AN EXTREMELY IMPORTANT GOOGLE FORM LINK IN THIS POST THAT WE ARE ASKING PARENTS AND GUARDIANS TO FILL OUT FOR EACH CHILD IN THEIR HOUSEHOLD. Paste the link into your web browser and you will be taken to the Google Form. The Google Form will only take a few minutes to complete and will be extremely helpful in guiding our online learning.
I am writing to you today to confirm the news from the Minister of Education that our school will remain closed until at least May 4, 2020 as part of the provincial effort to stop the spread of the COVID-19.
We have been working with the school board on a plan so that learning can continue while students are at home. Information about the “TLDSB Learning@Home” plan may be found on the TLDSB website. Information will continue to be added to this page so please check back regularly.
We want to be sure that our at home learning plan is as successful for your child as possible. Please take a few minutes to complete a form for each child in your household to let us know what might work for learning in your home. Once we have gathered this information our teachers will be able to select delivery methods that meet the needs of individual learners and the resources families have available.
Please complete this form for each of your children:
I know this is a very stressful time for all members of our school community right now – our students, our staff, and their families. Your well-being must continue to be your first priority. Please reach out to your child’s teacher or to myself if you have any questions or concerns.
