Since the closing of schools in mid-March due to the recent pandemic, school districts have offered at-home learning opportunities for all students (e.g., online, telephone check-ins, and/or course packages). Parents (in conjunction with their child’s school team) have been supporting their child‘s learning and social-emotional development during this time. Currently, the province continues to work with school authorities and education system partners on developing a comprehensive re-entry plan. This situation leaves many families wondering how they can support their child to transition smoothly into the 2020-21 school year regardless of the re-entry plan that is developed. Knowing that it will be important for parents to share student strengths and home-based strategies that have worked well with school teams, this presentation will be designed to provide families with effective tools and ways to share information to ensure a smooth and successful transition. Tools to be explored may include; slides, videos, creating books and memory boxes.
