Covid-19 Update from SSRCE March 20, 2020

Dear Students and Families,

I know that COVID-19 has presented everyone with challenges. I want to thank all of you who are in self-isolation. You are helping everyone in our community stay safe. This email is to share information about some actions that are being planned for students.

First, I want to remind you that schools are closed until April 6 as part of the province-wide measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. This closure will be reassessed as the situation changes. As March Break comes to a close, please know we continue to work with education leaders across the province and the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, on plans to support students and learning.

Beginning Monday, and over the next week, we will work with staff in schools to make specific plans to support students and learning during this closure. Enabling students at all levels to continue learning at home is a priority for us, and we have been making these plans during March Break and into next week. We will have more information to share with you in the coming days and weeks, and school principals will share details that are specific to your school. In particular, we are focusing on the needs of Grade 12 students so they can meet graduation requirements.

Please continue to follow advice from Nova Scotia Public Health, including the mandatory self-isolation for 14 days if you have travelled out of the country recently. You can find accurate, up-to-date information at: - novascotia.ca/coronavirus - canada.ca/coronavirus

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we adapt and respond to this extremely rare world event. We will continue to be in touch.

Sincerely, Paul Ash Regional Executive Director South Shore Regional Centre for Education

Nova Scotia Homework Hub

 

The Nova Scotia Homework Hub to support students in Grades 9, 10, and 11 Mathematics is now ready for use!

This is an online platform that offers resources and free tutoring for students enrolled in Grades 9, 10 or 11 Math courses. Students can have a 1:1 session with a tutor, in French or English, via an online whiteboard, or by calling on the phone. Students can also access additional learning resources that include video lessons, practice exercises, quizzes with instant feedback, digital versions of the mathematics textbooks (where available) and a scientific or graphic calculator.

Grade 9 students can access the Homework Hub by logging in to their gnspes account and clicking on the Homework Hub icon beginning on November 14th, 2017.

Tutors are available between 5:30-9:30pm Sunday through Thursday. Each tutoring session is a maximum of 20 minutes, although this may be extended by the tutor as needed. All tutors are qualified Nova Scotia teachers or teachers in training.
