Happy Wednesday Saints!

Please see below for some reminders and updates.

Please take a look at the following information that is meant to help you with your WCDSB@Home learning.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher:

  1. WCDSBLearn@Home is a great link that you can use to access any ADDITIONAL learning opportunities that you may want for your children.  Here you will also find Mental Health, government updates, using and tips for parents involving Chromebooks/Laptop/iPad:  https://wcdsblearnathome.wcdsb.ca/tips-for-parents/
  2. WCDSBPray@Home is a great link for resources for you and your family in regards to prayer and reflection.  Please take a look at this when you can!  It can be really helpful and will be a way for you to connect during Catholic Education Week!
  3. Do you need a computer or internet at home?  Please check out this link to see if you qualify for a free device or free/subsidized internet at home!  This will apply even after the COVID-19 Pandemic is behind us!
  4. COVID-19 Updates on the board website is a great location to get the most updated information about the current pandemic.

As we move forward, please remember that on our WCDSB board website you will find from our home page a link to WCDSBLearn@Home where a host of additional resources for all learners will be found.  We also encourage you to continue to visit our WCDSBPray@Home webpage as well as our FAQ page.  You can also follow the #STEAMDays hashtag where lots of fun and engaging activities are being posted.
