Hello Churchill community (Parents/Guardians and Students),
On behalf of the administration team at Winston Churchill CI , we do hope this email finds you and your families mentally and physically well during this unprecedented time. We do miss seeing our students and staff and look forward to the schools opening back up!
The Churchill team is getting prepared to ensure all students will be able to continue their learning during this time.
Some Churchill teachers may be keeping their students educated and informed through Google Classroom, BrightSpace, Edmodo or any other platform that was used while school was in session.
Teachers who did not have an electronic platform prior to leaving for the break, will be setting their up their online classrooms next week.
Please regularly check the Churchill website for information pertinent to our school.
The TDSB will be sharing directives in terms of teachers supporting student learning in the coming weeks and months. Decisions and changes will be made regularly and in order to keep yourself updated, please check your emails regularly.
The following sites are available to help you and your child at this time. Keep safe!
