Information for this coming week:

Delivery of hard packs and devices will happen for those who have requested them during Monday. Teachers have been actively sorted resources to get into homes over the weekend. We have been able to deliver some devices over the weekend and will try getting them out to all those who requested by tomorrow. This will either be in letterboxes on dropped on doorsteps. 

Online learning and scheduled lessons/ google meets will continue so please check seesaw or student’s emails. (If students have forgotten passwords please email to get a new password)

Production: We will postpone this to the best possible next dates which I think might be week 8 
13th-17th September depending on availability. We will continue to adapt to make sure the students get the chance to showcase what they have worked so hard on.
Snow Trip: Will continue ass planned with a decision made by Friday this week. 
Facebook videos: We will add daily Facebook videos for those interested.
Thank you to all our essential worker families for what you are doing in this difficult time.
