COVID–19 Support for Families
COVID–19 has impacted all of us in ways we couldn’t have expected. With our PSB schools being closed, the absence of access to school breakfast and lunch programs has put a financial strain on many families. Assistance is being provided to families dealing with food insecurity. Please contact the Support for Families lines 902-368-5155 or 902-368-6990 or firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and contact information so we can get back to you about the supports that are available to assist you and your family at this time.
In light of the school closures, the Department of Education and Lifelong Learning is providing ongoing learning opportunities for students while at home. We recommend home learning that focuses on three key areas; health and well-being, literacy and numeracy.
Activities that support ongoing learning can be found below.
