Monday March 30 – All schools closed for in class instruction until further notice

A message to the Dunsmuir Middle School Community from Mr. Kaercher:

While I know that the last (2) weeks did not resemble the Spring Break any of us has anticipated, I hope that this message finds you and your families well. As you have likely heard from district and provincial communication’s, schools have been closed for in class instruction until further notice. In the immediate, educators are working to adapt to our current reality as we endeavor to deliver meaningful and essential learning in a digital format. You can expect to hear from your child’s teacher this week as we work towards engaging and connecting with our school community. Please do not expect curriculum delivery this week. We anticipate to begin some form of curriculum delivery the following week.

At the school level, we will continue to work on developing a sustainable plan that supports the continuity of learning for students at Dunsmuir Middle School. While this plan is being developed over the next couple of weeks and as we address the many questions and concerns about working and learning remotely, the School District will be providing more information via the District’s website www.sd62.bc.ca.

We will communicate our plans to families as they are developed. It is important families are checking email, school and School District websites and our school app for updates and information.

At this time, we ask that all students and families stay home and not come to the school to pick up belongings and items. We will be communicating a plan to allow students and families to pick up essential belongings and items in the next couple weeks, but it needs to be in a coordinated process that prioritizes safety for all. Please do not show up at the school with expectations of entering the building. If there is something you need immediately please contact us directly.

To the essential service providers in the community and beyond, we thank you and appreciate your past, present and continued efforts and commitment during these and at all other times.

We appreciate your patience and flexibility as we work and learn through these extraordinary times and look to find solutions in moving forward. We will continue providing updates as they become available.

We look forward to reconnecting (all be it digitally) in the coming days and wish you and your family the very best. Take great care.

Thank you,

Mark Kaercher
