Wellness and Learning Support for Parents

Hey Parents - we're here to help!

The daily demands of parenting, work and running a home are always challenging. Right now, the challenges are bigger than ever.

We're here to help!

These pages contain support and ideas for activities you might do at home; tips for maintaining mental and physical wellbeing; plus tips on supporting your children in their learning.

We're going to get through this together. 

This has been an unusual year!

Now that we know for sure classes will continue in an at-home format for the rest of this school year, our school division has created a consistent plan all BRSD schools will follow for marking and final report cards.

We hope this information answers your questions on how final marking and grading will be determined.

You will also want to know that the last day of classes for all BRSD students, in all grades, is Friday, June 19.

That gives families the last week of June to pack up school work and make sure textbooks and other specialized resources or equipment is returned to the school building. 

It also gives staff time to prepare detailed year-end summaries that school staff will use to ensure each student gets off to a good start in September.

Final report cards will be available on June 26.

Sign up for this 8-week opportunity to focus on healthy eating, healthy relationships and fun ways to keep moving.
