April 3, 2020

Dear Richmond Street Parents, Guardians and Students

I sincerely hope that you and your family are all well. We miss all of you very much and the more we stay at home and practice good handwashing routines along with social distancing, the sooner we can get back to work, to school and to regular life.

Our teachers have been busy this week making personal contact with home to ensure everyone is well and ready to learn. They have also been developing their virtual classrooms. If you have not been in contact with your teacher, please check our website under the tab About Richmond Street, then Staff and the email address of the staff will be there.

At this time I would like to let everyone know that all school trips will be cancelled for the remainder of this year. If we are fortunate to return to class in the near future, we will not be booking any trips in our to maximize our in class learning and out of an abundance of safety for all.

If you purchased anything on our Cash Online (Milk, Pizza, Deposits for School Trips etc.) everything will be refunded to you. It may take some time, however I would like to reassure you that all monies will be returned to you. Any monies that were fundraised by students for school trips will applied to future trips. For the few that may have made purchases or deposits in cash, we are working on a system to get this to you also, we appreciate your patience.

We look forward to next week, as we begin to ramp up our student online learning. We encourage all students to be engaged with your teacher on a regular basis. Please remember to check our website at richmond.dsbn.org.

Look out for each other and please be safe.

Dear Richmond Parents

I’m hopeful that you and your family are healthy during this challenging time. I wanted to let you know about what we are doing to provide your children with support so that they can continue their learning at home.

We know that students and teachers are missing their daily contact at school. One of the most important activities we are working on right now is to find ways for your child’s teacher to connect with your child. Your child’s teacher will be contacting them at some point during the day on Monday. If you would like to start the contact, or your child’s teacher does not have your email address, please refer to the Staff List on our website (richmond.dsbn.org) . There you will find your child's teacher's e-mail address (click on "About Richmond Street" on the main page, and then click on "Staff"). This will allow you to send an email to them, if you wish.

The DSBN has launched a Learning From Home website. To visit the site, simply go to dsbn.org and click on the banner on the front page. On the site students have access to a variety of resources organized by grade and subject. This is just the first step of our learning at home plan. We are currently creating a way for your child to have teacher-led learning at home.

I know that some families may not have a device or Internet access. If you require support so your child can access these resources, please contact your child’s classroom teacher. We will work together on a plan to get you the support you need.

If you have specific questions about your child’s learning or have a question about the Learn From Home resources, please contact your child’s teacher. In the meantime, I will contact you weekly with updates.

As always, our entire school team is here to support the learning of our students. Please contact me if you have any questions.

Thank you,

Tony D’Alessandro, Principal
