Digital Learning Resources

The following are links to a variety of digital resources for students and families to access during this period of school closure due to COVID-19. These resources are not intended to replace the curriculum which students would have been receiving if they had been back in school. They are intended to help keep students engaged as we transition to a teacher led learning environment. 

As a school, we remain committed to creating teaching and learning conditions that will, as best as possible given the circumstances, lead to the successful completion of the school year for all students.
