Essex District High School Update on School Reopening - August 11, 2020
GECDSB School Reopening Plan



Good Students, Parents and Guardians,

The Attendance Confirmation Survey will be sent out by the school board on Tuesday August 11.  This will be done directly through the parent’s/guardian’s registered email with the school. Parents/guardians/students will be choosing between the adapted in person model or a fully remote/online model of instruction. Additional information will be included in the survey.

If you do not currently have a valid email on file with the school, a form on the school board website (http://publicboard.ca/) will be posted for you to update your email. When your updated email is received, the Attendance Confirmation Survey will be sent directly to you by email as soon as possible.

The following message regarding the Attendance Confirmation Survey will be sent to all families in the very near future by the school board:

"This is an important message from the Greater Essex County District School Board. To assist us in planning and organizing our schools for cohorting of students, transportation and learning needs, we are asking parents and guardians to let us know what their intentions are for the beginning of 2020-2021 school year in September. For the security of private, personal information a link to the Attendance Confirmation survey will be sent to the email you have registered with the school. If you do not receive this email please visit our website to update your email information and the survey will be forwarded to you at that address as soon as possible. Survey submissions will be accepted until the end of Monday, August 17th. For detailed information on the GECDSB Reopening Plan visit our website http://www.publicboard.ca/ and review the document."

Cohorting of students is being done centrally with approximately 15 students or less in a classroom at any given time.

*Please note that if your child(ren) is in a self-contained special education classroom (STEPS) you will be contacted by school staff about your intentions for in-person attendance. This is a change from previous messaging.

Thank you for your continued patience as we plan for school reopening in September.

Mr. Querbach

Planning for September 2020

Good Morning Parents, Guardians and Students:

As we draw to the close of this unique, challenging and unprecedented school year, I want to take the opportunity to thank all of you for your flexibility, cooperation, understanding and resilience. This has not been easy. I would also like to wish you all a happy, healthy and well-deserved summer break. Please take some time for yourselves and to celebrate those most important to you.

As many of you are already aware, the Minister of Education announced three potential plans for school reopening in September. These possible plans are detailed in the  letter from the Minister that can be found on our school website. Please also see the message from Director Erin Kelly about plans for September.  The possible plans are a full return to school with safety precautions, continuing with full virtual learning or a blend of the two while limiting the number of students in class at a time. In addition, there is other important information in the Minister's letter that will be of interest to students, parents and guardians as we work towards returning to school in September.

At this point, we do not know what our September plan will be for Essex District High School, but I will continue to update you as the summer progresses. Thank you again for all you have done during the school closure to support our school, our students and our community. Take care, stay safe and all the best for a restful summer.

Mr. Querbach

Locker Contents Pick-up and School Items Return

Good Afternoon Parents, Guardians and Students,

The plan for the pick-up of locker items and the return of textbooks and other school materials has been sent to all parents and students via Edsby. Please read it carefully and in its entirety. There are important procedures and safety measures that must be followed.

For those students who filled out the survey last week, their locker contents have been bagged and will be available for pick-up. Anyone can return school items. Pick-up of locker items and return of school items will happen on Tuesday June 9 (students with last names starting with A-K) and Wednesday June 10 (students with last names starting with L-Z) from 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM each day.

Thank you for your cooperation in helping us complete this task

Mr. Querbach
