Due to Covid Safety Protocols that will remain in effect until the end of June, Devereaux will not be able to host parents at the school or hold our traditional events, assemblies, gatherings, or celebrations in the same way we usually would. We look forward to the day when things get back to normal and we can share good food and good times to celebrate together the wonderful children we have at Devereaux .
Please know that we are so very proud of all of our students’ academic, artistic, athletic, social and emotional growth this year. We have a fabulous group of grade 7 students leaving us soon as well.
Normally, we would be involving students and parent volunteers in the planning and participation of many special June activities. This year, we cannot. Please see the attachment from the Ministry of Education for more information.
Online and Distance Learning Programs Will Continue
SD 59 Learn at Home Options for September
In response to the needs of families navigating the uncertainty created by the COVID-19 pandemic, School District 59 (Peace River South) reintroduced a K – 9 Distributed Learning option in September of 2020. The program offers a blend of paper-based and online instruction for K – 3 students and online learning for students in grades 4 – 9.
SD 59 is pleased to announce that the program will continue in September for the 2021 - 2022 school year.
The K – 3 programs, while using paper-based resources, have introduced online resources for mathematics and language arts. Weekly check-ins, read-alouds, and reading assessments using video conferencing (Zoom and Teams) has added a critical element to the programs, providing a virtual connection between the students and the teacher. The grade 4 – 7 programs are also benefiting from similar virtual connections.
South Peace Distributed Learning School’s elementary and middle years programs are now taking registrations for the 2021-2022 school year. Information about the school and school programming, as well registration can be obtained by calling:
