Dear Whitehorse Families,
Whitehorse staff returned to school this week and are busy engaging in common learning and setting up our virtual classrooms. We can’t wait for all students, grades 6-8, to join us on September 8th.
Homeroom teachers will be reaching out to families early next week to introduce themselves and ensure that your student is ready for virtual learning. Our teachers are interested in learning how and when to best communicate with you. You can provide information to your student’s teachers by completing this survey and identifying your communication preferences. Please complete this survey by Friday August 28th. Teachers will then use the provided information to contact you throughout the year.
We hope you will join us at one of our Virtual Back to School events. This event will give you a chance to meet your student’s teachers, become familiar with the daily schedule, and learn how to support your student in virtual learning. There are three options for you to participate, choose the one that best meets your needs.

Make sure that your student has exchanged their Chromebook. If you have not already done so, please check out this link for a current schedule and more information.
We are committed to making sure that your student’s virtual learning experience prioritizes high quality academic instruction while incorporating social emotional learning with an anti-racist lens. We look forward to collaborating with all of you to achieve positive learning outcomes for your student.
