Learning From Home for MCHS Students

A message for MCHS families from Principal Carolyn Jensen:

For full details about our transition to distance learning, including available resources and frequently asked questions, please read through the full Parent Letter.

March 31, 2020 - We certainly wish that you had a good spring break, and were able to find some time to relax and connect as a family in these unsteady times. We had a great PD day yesterday, and your teachers were getting ready for this new distance learning format for MCHS. It’s going to be a little different for all of us, but there have been students learning at a distance for years who have been very successful. We will all figure it out with some patience and grace.

Email Communication

Thank you so much for following our requests in regard to picking up personal items from lockers during spring break. I’m glad to see so many of you checking emails. This will become our primary form of communication now. Please be sure that email addresses are current in PowerSchool. You can update by logging in if needed.

Classes Resumed This Morning

Teachers went live with their instruction this morning. They have been emailing their classes, advising how they are going to be proceeding with instruction from a distance. If your child has not been checking their PSD email account, they should be now.

School Office Hours

School office hours have been adjusted temporarily to 9am to 3pm until further notice.

Coming to the School

Access to the school will be limited to the front foyer. As we are required to only admit less than 15 people while ensuring six feet between them, we will be asking families/students to drive up to the school and enter one at a time. As one student leaves the school and drives away, the next student can come in.

Locker Items - We still have about 40 lockers that weren’t cleaned out, so we have bagged those personal items. Please call in advance if you are picking up locker items. They are being stored securely, so we will need advance notice to retrieve the appropriate bag.

Print Materials or Other Instructional Items - Teachers who have items prepared will notify students when they are available at the school. Please do not come prior to receiving notification.

Dropping Off Materials - There is a large bin for student work to be dropped in the foyer.

The one thing I have said repeatedly about Stony Plain kids (and their families) is that they are good, really good. Students and parents take care of business with a sensible and practical approach. We very much appreciate our school community and will continue to support students and their learning.

Take care, stay healthy and stay in touch.

Ms. Jensen
