NJ Closure Update - May 20, 2020

On May 19 the Minister of Education announced that all schools in Ontario would remain closed until September due to COVID 19. Although the staff at NJ would love to connect with students in person, the health and well-being of our staff and students remains the #1 priority.


 Although the school is physically closed, the NJ staff are working hard to use flexible and creative ways to engage and continue learning until the end of June. In the current virtual situation we still have lots of credits being earned, and congratulations to the 16 NJ Grads of 2020 we have had since March Break. We realize that not having an official graduation ceremony in June is disappointing, but we are all very proud of your accomplishments. Planning for an EPIC fall graduation is already underway.


For the grads of 2021 and beyond, please keep in mind that all work completed now will count towards earning a credit at some point in your NJ journey. As mentioned in my last message…...If you are doing other things at home (daily exercise, fitness, employment, construction, landscaping, creative art work, playing music, cooking, babysitting, songwriting, poetry, etc) please reach out to your teacher or guidance counselor who can likely link it to a course for partial credit. There is still time to earn a couple credits between now and the end of June.


If any students are interested in taking Online Summer School in July, please contact Guidance ASAP as it is filling up quickly. For course offerings, click on the Summer School link on the school (or ocdsb) website.


Finally, please keep in mind that your health and safety is still the most important factor. Although these are challenging times right now, there are lots of resources available. If in need, feel free to reach out to us at NJ and we will do our best to help. We are looking forward to seeing all of you in person.


All the best,

Mike Linden (VP)
