Thursday Update – April 9, 2020

Dear VCE Families,


I hope you have had a great week with your families and you are getting into some new routine and structure in our new way of doing things. Now that we have all of the families up and running with technology that needed it, we want to check in to see if your child can a) log on to the device and b) get onto seesaw and other websites that we will be using at this time. Please if you are having trouble with either of these call our VCE office 604-892-9394 or get in touch with your teacher for assistance. There may also be a new tech need that has come about, please let your teacher or the office know asap so that we can support you and get you what you need. As we have limited technology, this will be done again by priority. There will be information on how to pick any tech up on April 20th once we have connected with you.


Teachers will also be reaching out to see if there are any other things that you might need to be successful with our new online/at home learning. Some teachers will also be sending a few things that you might need but it will not be a requirement for your child to be successful in their learning and it will be optional. Due to our new health and safety protocols and with limited access to the public, we will be setting up two days, April 20th & 21st for pick-up of any supply packs –more information to come on how this will look next week. At this time, we will not be able to provide ongoing pick up supplies so please write these dates in your calendar and next week watch for instructions on pick up.
