Learning Resources and Supports for Students and Parents

The following supports are provided to support students with at home learning. However, the school staff recognize that not all students have equal access to at home internet and laptops or electronic learning devices. At this time students will not be penalized if they do not have the means to engage in learning on-line.

The information provided is to assist and support those who currently have access to the necessary supports for learning on line. We will be exploring further on-line service delivery methods over the next several weeks.

In addition, please feel free to explore the web pages provided by the Ontario Department of Education.

Urgent Message

April 15, 2020

Due to the current State of Emergency in Ontario and Covid-19 crisis; The Premier and Minister of Education for Ontario have closed public schools throughout the province.

In addition, the Sandy Lake Education Authority has directed the closure of both Thomas Fiddler Memorial Schools until further notice.  During this time, only those with permission will be allowed to enter the buildings.

The current webpage is a step to reach out to the homes of our students and families during this difficult time. Our administration has been exploring online options to provide students and parents with support and resources to help with at home learning. The website will evolve over the next several weeks.

As the current situation is rapidly changing; when information becomes available it will be shared with our students, parents, and community.  

We thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.

Take Care and Stay Safe,
