Hey SQE Squad! New and improved Library Website here:

Squamish Elementary Library Website

 It’s full of Resources for online literacy 🙂

Ms. Antonios

 

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We hope that you and your family are persevering through this challenging time.  We miss seeing the children in the school and having family connections with you.

During these uncertain times, it’s important to talk to the children in a calm and reassuring manner with honest and accurate information. Teaching children everyday actions to reduce the spread of germs is vital.

We wanted to let you know that the staff have been collaborating to make contact with families, assessing the teaching and learning needs and are preparing to continue learning for the children going forward.  We hope to send some learning home by Fri.

Due to the virtual nature of learning, we are lending school tech devices (laptops, iPads) in priority order:

  1. Students with designations and IEP
  2. Vulnerable students
  3. Students without access to the devices at home

Unfortunately, we don’t have enough devices for all students but we are trying to meet the needs as best we can.  If you are in the priority groups and need a device, please let your teachers know.  We hope to have the devices going home by Friday.  We will be using School Appointments app for scheduling a pickup of the devices by the parents or guardians.  There will be instructions going to these families tomorrow.

On another note, if you need help with groceries, please contact the office for some help.  If your children need social emotional support, please let us know as well.  Please reach out to us.  We are here to help.

Sincerely,

Ji Ai Cho

Principal
