Good Afternoon Eardley Community,
I hope this email finds you well. Please see below for an update on our remote learning moving into next week.
The Ministry of Education has prescribed the remote learning hours based on each Cycle level. Eardley is meeting this requirement and offering a variety of ways to support your child through this extended closure. Please know that I am aware of the added stress and pressure this puts on our parent/guardian community. Therefore, I want to make it clear that the schedules sent are what we are offering; please do what you can given your family’s circumstances. In no way shape or form will your child be penalized for not attending a scheduled block. If one day proves difficult, take the necessary break that is needed. If the scheduled work is causing a meltdown at home, put it aside. The last thing we want to add to anyone’s plate amidst all of this uncertainty is more stress. So please, do what you can and we will continue to be here to guide and support the best we can.
I want to extend my sincere appreciation for all of your hard work over the past week supporting your children as we have adapted to remote learning. Your continuous support and positivity has lifted our team and allowed us to continue to be the best versions of ourselves given the current circumstances.
What Can I Expect?
- By days end you will receive the online schedule from your child’s homeroom teacher for next week.
will continue focusing on –
- The core subjects – English, French & Math
- Physical Education Class will be held at least once

- Attendance will be taken each day. If your child is not present online or the teacher/specialist is unable to make contact with the family, they will be marked absent within our system. If your child is absent for a particular reason, please notify Stephanie Lelievre @ SLelievre@wqsb.qc.ca . If we do not have a reason provided, please expect a phone call from Stephanie Lelievre.
