Letter to Families re: Switching Modes of Learning (Face to Face and Virtual)

Dear Families,

You should have received the letter below over the weekend. Please remember the deadline to complete the survey is Tuesday, September 22 at 7:00 PM. You should only complete the survey if you want to change your child’s current mode of learning (Face-to-Face vs. Online). Changes will not be permitted again until the end of January 2021.

Dear Families,
As we communicated on September 16, we are sharing a link to our ​School Model Change Request Form ​ for families requesting a ​change​ from our face-to-face learning model to Elementary Virtual School (EVS) learning model, or to change from EVS to face-to-face.
Only families requesting a school model change should complete this form.

School Model Change Request Form
This form will open Monday, September 21 at 8 a.m. and will close on ​Tuesday, September 22 at 7 p.m.

All requests will be considered and processed over the next few weeks as staff are deployed to meet the needs for both of our Elementary learning models.

Reduced cohort class size targets for our face-to-face model continues to be a priority.

Although we will attempt to meet all requests from our families, there may be some situations that cannot be accommodated based on staffing and program requirements. We will advise those families accordingly.

Families will receive a confirmation email that we have received your completed School Model Change Request Form within 24 hours of submitting this form.
If your child requires technology, families can make requests for devices and internet access ​by contacting their home school, who will then complete the request for technology on your behalf​. If you require further technical supports for board provided devices, please fill out the ​Student Tech Help​. Students who are new to the board, or have forgotten their Username or Password, should contact their “home school” office staff to retrieve their Username and Password. We will continue to send you updates and encourage you to visit the ​EVS Website​ for information as we continue to construct this new virtual learning environment for our students in YRDSB.
