As we move into June and the last month of school for the 2019-2020 school year, Public Schools Branch (PSB) staff are working diligently on the many year-end tasks and are planning and preparing to ensure success for September 2020. In accordance with the provisions of Phase 3 in Renew PEI, school staffs have more opportunities to support students and families throughout the month of June.
Teachers are available to schedule in-person appointments with students who wish to review their learning, the Respite Program is being offered in all PSB schools, some teachers are connecting with students through Google Meet, and PSB consultants and school counsellors have begun to reach out to families needing specialized supports. Home learning will continue until June 12 for high school students and June 19 for K-9 students.
Every effort will be made to ensure our public schools are safe and that learning will resume after the March Break. As per the Chief Public Health Officer’s comments, circumstances are changing quickly. Please watch for further updates and review the latest online information about COVID-19, including recommendations from the Chief Public Health Office: www.princeedwardisland.ca/covid19.
