As I am fielding questions from students through email, I might add new information or directions to previously posted work.  Thanks!

Hello Parents and Guardians,

Starting this week and until further notice, our Grade 7 Teachers are holding Flex Time meetings from Monday - Thursday each day from 11am-12pm.  This is an optional drop-in session designed for all grade 7 students who require extra support for ongoing learning at home. 

Flex Time is a fantastic chance for students to ask their teachers specific questions throughout the week and to receive answers in a face-to-face format.

Please refer to the schedule and new Google Meet Code to access the Flex Time meetings to help your child to be fully aware of this opportunity so that they understand when and how they can drop-in for teacher(s) support.
