At-Home Learning January 10-14
On January 5, the province announced the decision to move to at-home learning for the week of January 10 with students returning to school on Monday, January 17.
By moving to at-home learning for one week, the necessary steps can be taken to address concerns, such as purchasing HEPA filtration systems for schools and classrooms with passive ventilation systems, and ensuring a good supply of 3-ply masks are available for all children and staff. Schools will continue to remain open to students who access intensive support and programs, such as through the learning centre.

Similar to May 2021, students can expect a combination of real-time instruction delivered by teachers and self-directed learning. Students will have opportunities to engage virtually with their peers, their teachers, and all other supports.

We understand that many students may not have the needed technology with them. Principals and school staff are working on distribution details. You should hear more information about at-home learning and the distribution of technology from your child’s teacher/school in the coming days.
During at-home learning, students who are in emergency need of food can call 211 for assistance from Feed Nova Scotia.
