Bondar Update (January 11, 2021)
Posted on 01/11/2021

Dear Bondarians:

Welcome to our second week of remote learning.  Thank you for all of your support, and understanding during our start up last week.  


We thank you in advance for your continued vigilance around the Ottawa Public Health guidelines and remembering to be COVID Wise.  Working together as a community will help us to return to school safely on January 25th.  


Remote Learning Reminders:

  • Attendance will be taken daily at 9:05am;

  • Please connect with your child’s teacher if you have any questions or challenges. 


Assessment & Evaluation:

Thank you for supporting your child throughout our remote learning period (i.e. technical difficulties, focus, completion of asynchronous learning etc…).  Throughout this time we will continue to complete our assessment of your child(ren)’s skill development within the curriculum, especially assessment as and for learning.  Please allow your child to try their work independently to the best of their ability.  All of us want our children to experience success and as a staff we are programming to provide students the right level of challenge and learning based on their demonstration of skills.  We will use full class instruction, small groups, and individual assistance to support and extend learning.  When you are tempted to help your child(ren) with an answer or struggle, it’s best to teach them different strategies (i.e. resources, guess/check, take a break or walk) that they can take with them throughout their learning journey. 


As educators, we have sought to provide your child(ren) with engaging learning activities, while recognizing the challenges and multiple demands faced by our families. We appreciate those who have reached out to provide us with feedback, and we invite you to respond to this email at robertabondarps@ocdsb.ca with any question, or to share your thoughts on how we can better support the Bondar community.


Be well and stay safe,
