Hello Cameron Street Families,

The announcement last week from Minister Lecce regarding keeping schools closed brought on mixed emotions from our school staff. Above all, we know that child safety is paramount, so the announcement made sense. However, the end of the school year has so many exciting events and celebrations that we will not be able to offer at this time and the staff have expressed how much they are missing the students during this challenging time.

Distance Learning

Our distance learning continues with the emphasis being on reading, writing and math skills. Practicing these skills daily helps mitigate the regression that can occur. Our teachers continue to develop and deliver grade specific content to students in preparation for successfully accessing the curriculum in September. Your child(ren) may be asking why they need to continue the learning, especially with the weather making it so easy to get out and explore, but continuing with daily practice will greatly support them.

As always, our staff at Cameron Street are available to support you or your child(ren). We are a team that is working together to help students through distance learning. If you are struggling with getting your child(ren) to engage with learning, please reach out to your classroom teacher so that we can make a support plan for distance learning that will work for you and your child(ren).

Personal Belongings and Technology

In terms of student belongings, we are currently waiting for direction from the senior administration team as to how we will be getting items back to you. Currently, our Board is working with the Medical Officer and Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit to develop a plan that ensures safety protocols are in place for both staff and families to keep everyone safe. As soon as we have our plan, it will be communicated directly to you. In addition, families will be contacted to arrange for the safe return of borrowed SCDSB technology equipment by the end of the school year.

Grade 8 Graduation

Our grade 8 graduation will be done with a virtual celebration on June 24. School staff and students have created a graduation team that is working on a plan to honour this milestone for our grade 8 students as they move on to the secondary level of their education. Families of students in grade 8 can expect more details to come in the next week.

We hope that you and your family continue to remain healthy and safe.

Sincerely,

Troy Comish and Jennifer Case
