Dear students and families of Welland Centennial

Thank you to all of you for your continued patience and support as we navigate through this school year.

I wanted to update you about semester 2 which starts on Thursday February 4th. To confirm, all students will start their courses online.

Once we are informed from the Ministry of Education about our return to in-person learning, we will share more details.

You will see from the calendar below that while we are all fully online, the schedule will rotate through the periods (1, 2, 3, 4) and then repeat the 4 day cycle.

Daily Synchronous Learning– NEW!

While schools remain physically closed, students will be participating in daily synchronous learning. Starting on February 4th, it is very important that you log in to your class at the time instructed by your teacher to participate in your daily learning. There will be set times for about an hour at the start of each day and again at the end of each day of synchronous learning in Microsoft Teams or Google Classroom.

Your teachers will reach out by email prior to your class to give you directions of where to login.
