LDSB Elementary Virtual School

Messages from Elementary Learning Lead

In Limestone, we are supporting Elementary Virtual School students who have opted for remote learning using a phased approach.  

Phase 1: Home school support
(September 8-23, 2020)

  • Students can engage in the learning activities provided by their home school teacher at their own pace. The home school classroom teacher will monitor the progress of learning during this period through periodic check ins (e.g. phone calls home).
  • Students/families can access phone help or virtual meeting support with the assigned learning activities from our Synchronous Student Support Team made up of elementary teachers and educational assistants.
  • Students will be provided some opportunities to join larger virtual learning meetings beginning the week of September 14 in addition to learning activities assigned by the home school. 
Phase 2: LDSB Virtual Elementary School
(September 24 to June 24, 2021)

  • LDSB Virtual Elementary School will begin September 24, 2020
  • Students will be in virtual classes with students from other LDSB schools, not only students from their home school. 
  • The virtual school organization and staff will be determined based on enrolment through the regular staffing process and reorganization like every other school in the district.
  • Virtual School teachers will be online for 225 minutes per day (Grades 1-8) or 180 minutes per day (Kindergarten) providing a combination of whole class instruction, guided instruction, individual support and “office hours” for each full-time assignment. The remaining instructional time can be used to support remote students working offline, checking in with students, etc.
  • There will be another opportunity to opt in or out at a later date to be determined.
