Connect with your child’s teacher……

Hello Phoenix Families,

We want to share our sincere thanks to those families who have been connecting with their child’s classroom teacher over email – phone – D2L or Google classroom.

This has been so helpful as we work to deploy Chrombooks to those who need them, and plan for Teacher-led Remote Learning next week.

There are still many families we have not been able to connect with as phone numbers and e-mail have changed. Please share with neighbours and friends how to access our NewsWire, and our staff e-mail list so contact with the classroom teacher can be made.

The staff list on our web page has the e-mail listed for your child’s teacher:

Please follow us on NewsWire. Just enter your email in the bottom left corner of our Web Page and hit “Subscribe”.

You can also follow us on Twitter:

With formal learning beginning next week and the government’s commitment to report cards going home – we are working to make a connection with everyone and move the learning in a positive direction. With your help we can make the best of the challenges that COVID 19 has created.

Chromebook Delivery Plan – First Phase

Hello Families,

To those families who received a confirmation phone call or e-mail from your child’s teacher, we will be deploying the first phase of Chromebooks tomorrow between 1:00 and 3:00 p.m.

Please note the following:

  • Arrive at the school and pull into a parking spot between 1:00 and 3:00 Friday
  • We can only have a few staff interacting so this will take time
  • Chromebooks have been assigned by last name
  • Grocery style delivery to your car:  Chromebook is placed in the trunk of the car.
  • Social distancing is maintained at all times
  • Each Chromebook will be sent home with a “Self-Help” information sheet, which Computer Services has provided
  • A Self-Help FAQ will be posted on our WCDSB@Home webpage
  • A support line will be set up through the Help Desk (computer techs) – if all else fails but may be slower in responding.
  • There will be a process for returning a Chromebook if it does not work and a new one needs to be deployed – more info to come

There will be a phase 2 deployment next week as we continue to collect information on more families who need a device.

In addition – we are collecting SEA equipment for those students and families. We hope to deploy these devices as part of phase 2 next week.

We thank you for your patience as we work hard to get all these devices safely out to you.
