Touching Base

Dear students and parents,

I hope this email finds you and your loved ones safe and healthy.  As we prepare to start distance learning I wanted to touch base and share some information.

I will use email and the class website as the primary means of communication.   All work and announcements will be posted on the website so please check regularly.  You can contact me at my work email (clint.huffman@ontario.ca) to ask questions, share work and receive feedback. 

These are unprecedented times for all of us and your or your child’s learning program will be different as we begin this new phase of distance learning.  I hope I can rely on your patience, understanding and support. Do your best, be flexible and take care of yourself and your family. 

For more information on expectations for high school students see A letter to Ontario’s parents from the Minister of Education.  

Stay healthy and safe.    

Mr. Huffman
