Dear IES Hässelby,
Welcome back! I hope you had a restful and enjoyable spring break, despite the unexpected snowy weather.
On Monday 12 April, we welcome back all of our grade 7 and 8 students after nearly 10 weeks of remote learning.
I know the enormous responsibility that remote learning placed on guardians and students to create time, space, routine, and support for learning at home.
I also know that remote learning challenged our staff to find a new normal for learning and education. To completely rework what teaching and schooling looks like on such short notice wasn't easy, yet I have been so incredibly proud of the dedication I have seen from all of our teachers as they piloted new types of learning experiences for our students so that they can continue to reach their full potential.
So thank you teachers, students and guardians for your incredible hard work these past 10 weeks and for your continued support as we work through this crisis together.
Getting back to normal is a goal for our school community and together, with safe precautions, this will happen with time.
From a very grateful Principal,
