Important Information re: SIB moves to Remote Learning Wednesday April 7th
April 6th, 2021
Dear SIB parents/guardians,
As students will be shifting to remote learning on Wednesday April 7th, we wanted to provide you with some additional information about what this week will look like for students learning at home.
On Wednesday, teachers moving from in-person to remote will focus on connecting briefly with students to ensure they are set up for remote learning. This may look like a Google Meet or perhaps a phone call for those still needing technology. Teachers will also post work in their Google Classroom that students can complete independently on Wednesday.
Synchronous learning will begin on Thursday. Teachers will share a class schedule in their Google Classroom.
Attendance will be taken as usual during remote learning. A reminder that, at this time Spring Break scheduled for April 12-16 will proceed as planned.
Chromebook Requests: Most students who borrowed a chromebook from the school during the January remote learning period will be sent home with a chromebook today (Parents please check your child’s backpacks). An email will be sent to those parents as well confirming that the chromebook has been sent home and will need to be returned when in-school learning resumes. If your child requires a chromebook to use during remote learning (and one did not come home with them today) please complete the following form and you will be contacted regarding when you can pick one up from the school.

Please check your child’s Google Classroom this week for the weekly schedule and reach out to your child’s teacher if you have questions. Plus a parent tech help guide can be accessed at: https://sites.google.com/ugcloud.ca/parenthelp/
News regarding school is constantly being updated. SIB will continue to communicate with families step by step with information when it becomes available as we move through the school year. Please continue to check your email, twitter and our website https://www.ugdsb.ca/sibps/ daily for updates.
Thank you and stay safe!
