The GECDSB has posted an on-line questionnaire for all elementary school families to determine technical needs for home learning, if necessary.
Click this link: Technical Needs Survey
The deadline to respond will be Wednesday, Nov. 25th.
Below is the link to a parent survey about technology needs. This questionnaire is for students that do not have access to technology. We encourage one response for each child as in the event of school closures we will endeavour to provide devices for each child in a family.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of our Northwood families. Please note that there is no school on Monday, October 12. Enjoy this long weekend with your family!
School Advisory Council - Expression of InterestFor the 2020-21 school year, the ministry encourages school councils to meet and hold elections virtually to ensure a safe return to school as guided by the Office of the Chief Medical Officer of Health in EDU’s Guide to reopening Ontario’s Schools. Virtual meetings should remain accessible to the public, taking into consideration open online participation, to ensure school council guidelines are maintained.“A person is qualified to be a parent/guardian member of a school council if he or she is a parent/guardian of a student who is enrolled in the school.” Note that parents who have at least 1 child enrolled in an in-person school at this time are eligible to be elected as members of the in-person school’s School Council. Parents who have at least 1 child enrolled in a virtual school at this time are eligible to be elected as members of the virtual school’s School Council.We would like to continue to welcome any Northwood families to the school council meetings as platforms continue to change and evolve.We will be having our first School Council Meeting Virtually on Monday, October 19th, 2020 at 5:00pm and we will also have elections for Chair, Vice-Chair, Treasurer and Secretary.Please click on out form below if you would like to receive further information regarding School Council.https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=DgHgbDo7FEai29tzsY8hnwqnjJuc12xBn6hpKuAgprJUMkZRWjZTQzlHSU5DWTM0REY1MU9RUlhVVS4u
