The following are links to a variety of digital resources for students and families to access during this period of school closure, due to COVID-19. These resources are not intended to replace the curriculum which students would have been receiving if they had been back in school. They are intended to help keep students engaged as we transition to a teacher led learning environment.
As a Board, we remain committed to creating teaching and learning conditions that will, as best as possible given the circumstances, lead to the successful completion of the school year for all students.
Celebrating the Gift of Our Families
At this time, the Halton Catholic District School Board would like to celebrate the gift of our families. If this event has taught us anything, it is how interconnected we are and dependant on one another. Our faith tradition is of great inspiration and offers us an opportunity to put things into perspective. During this challenging time, families are encouraged to enjoy time creating moments and memories that will last a lifetime, most especially during this difficult situation. The following are resources to help integrate faith into your daily routine and continue through the season of Lent and into the joy of Easter:
