SNP STEAM Academy Updates

December 23, 2021

Holiday Greetings to our SNP STEAM Academy Families.

Yesterday the government of Ontario announced province-wide lockdown restrictions. These restrictions are scheduled to go into effect on December 26, 2020, and will impact our scheduled return to school in January 2021.

As a result:

  • SNP STEAM Academy all students will continue to work online from January 4 to January 22, 2021. Blended students will return to school on Monday, January 25, 2021.
  • Students with connectivity or learning challenges can contact our Vice-Principal, Mr. Nguyen Josef.nguyen@snpsteam.com, for assistance.
  • Any staff experiencing connectivity issues or require access to the school for priority matters will be accommodated.

The health and safety of our staff and students remain a top priority. We are also committed to supporting our staff and students as they navigate this challenging learning environment. We will continue to monitor and communicate any changes as this situation evolves.

For additional updates and information, please follow our website and social media channels. You can also contact the school directly. Our contact information and list of support resources are provided below.

Learning Supports and Resources:

The Ministry of Education recently announced the launch of two new portals, TVO Learn, which provide supports for students learning remotely by accessing additional educational resources developed by Ontario certified teachers.

Emotional and Well-Being Support Resources:

Students and families may be provided with information about Kids Help Phone, which offers 24/7 counselling and referral services across the province. To use this free resource, children can call 1-800-668-6868 or text CONNECT to 686868.

School Mental Health Ontario also has several great resources for students, parents, and families on their website at www.smho-smso.ca.

PAST UPDATES:

Hello SNP STEAM Academy families.
I hope you and your family are doing well.
We are committed to keeping you informed of updates on the School Restart Plan.
 
Unfortunately, SNP STEAM Academy will be delaying the start of the school year to Monday, September 21, 2020
 
This was a difficult decision, but one we believe is necessary to ensure we are best positioned to meet the needs of our students and staff.

  • Course work will resume on April 6, via online and alternative delivery methods and mail paper assignments to identified students with no/poor connectivity also for those who may have IEP accommodations or parental requests.
  • The campus remains closed until the end of the school year.
  • Educational Assistants and our Social Counsellor will be available to support students online Monday to Friday, from 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM.
  • Questions can be directed to zandra.bearlowen@snpsteam.com or by calling 226-493-1234 ext. 8201.
  • Final report cards will also be emailed and or mailed out by June 30.
