Letter to Uptergrove Familieshttp://upt.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/113Letter to Uptergrove Families<p>​</p><p>Dear Uptergrove Families,</p><p> </p><p>I hope this letter finds everyone well. During these unprecedented times, I am proud of the staff and students of Uptergrove who have pulled together to support one another. As we move forward with the Continuity of Learning Plan, it is important to be patient as we create 'at home' learning. Please continue to reach out to your homeroom teacher if you have questions. </p><p> <br></p><p>It is also important to continue to look after yourselves, and others. If you require support (food, resources, etc.) or know of someone who does, please contact the school at (705) 326-4332 and leave a brief message, along with a number we can contact you. We will continue to check our messages during this leave from the school. You can also send a private message to your classroom teacher as well. </p><p> </p><p>We know that not everyone has access to technology. We also know that some students have left items that they would like to retrieve. This may include text books, SEA equipment, etc. The School Board and the health unit continue to work on plans to address these concerns in ways that allow us to do so safely. As information is developed, we will share this with families. </p><p> </p><p>We have cancelled our Little Ceasar's fundraiser that was planned for March/April. We will start this up again in the Fall. </p><p> </p><p>Thank you again for all your support of our school. Together we will get through this difficult time.</p><p> </p><p>Take care,</p><p> </p><p>Todd Nie<br></p><p><br></p>
