K to 12 In-class Instruction Suspended in Remaining Schools in Avalon Region
Posted: February 11, 2021

With the support of Public Health, the Newfoundland and Labrador English School District is suspending in-class instruction for all schools in the Avalon region. This action is effective immediately and will extend until Friday, February 26. A complete list of schools impacted is provided below.

All school staff, with the exception of those required to self isolate on the direction of Public Health, are required to report to work at their school on February 12 to prepare materials and resources needed for online instruction. Teaching staff will begin online instruction as follows:

  • Intermediate and High School grades will begin online classes effective Monday, February 15.
  • Primary and Elementary grades will begin online classes effective Tuesday, February 16.
  • Sessions will adhere to the Protocols for Online Learning for different grade groupings. 

Student Services staff will work with schools in the coming days to prepare for the in-school learning needs of students identified in school-based Scenario 3 plans. 

“Given the large number of students identified for self-isolation today in schools on the Avalon, the District is making this decision, with the support of Public Health, in the best interests of student learning and safety,” said Tony Stack, CEO/Director of Education. “We know this is difficult on our staff, families, and our young learners and ask for your patience as we work through this process.”
