Semester 2 Hybrid Model Optionshttp://nor.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/177Semester 2 Hybrid Model Options<p>Dear Parents / Guardians of BNC Students:</p><p>Hello BNC Families!  This letter is to provide you with more information about the Hybrid Learning Model that will begin for all BNC students in Semester 2 (beginning on February 4<sup>th</sup>).  As you may have read in the message sent from the SCDSB, the Board will no longer be offering a separate Learn at Home program in second semester.  Instead, all BNC students will be scheduled into regular classes <strong>with the option of attending that class in person, or accessing the learning from home.</strong><strong>  </strong></p><p>As you can imagine, certain courses that are primarily activity based can be challenging to complete from home.  As such, the decision to keep your child at home may result in certain timetable changes for your student. </p><p><strong>We are proceeding on the assumption that Barrie North students who were Remote Learners in Semester One will be accessing their learning from home again in Semester Two, and those who were attending in person Semester One will continue to attend in person in Semester Two</strong>.   </p><p><strong>Option A</strong><strong>  </strong><strong>: If you wish to change your choice for Semester Two,</strong><strong>  </strong><strong>it is very important that you call the school at 705- 726- 6541, ext. 0, between the hours of 8 am and 3:30 pm, Monday to Friday , to inform us of your decision. </strong></p><p><strong>Please provide us with that information by Monday, November 30, 3:30 pm.</strong><strong>  </strong></p><p><strong>Option B:</strong>  <strong>If you will continue in Semester Two as you did in Semester One, there is no need to do anything. </strong></p><p>There are very clear expectations about attendance and participation for students who are learning from home in the Hybrid Learning Model.    These are listed below.  Please review them carefully with your student before you make your final decision </p><ul><li>Students must leave a "digital footprint" (logging in and submitting work) every week in     order to be        marked present </li><li>Students must maintain regular contact with the teacher via email and D2L </li><li>Students will be expected to engage online when lessons are being delivered "live"  via  classroom technology </li><li>Students are expected to work independently from home and, in some cases, will be missing valuable hands on work, collaboration and team building/group skills  </li></ul><p>We appreciate that the situation is fluid and there could be a change in your circumstances as next semester unfolds.   We will, of course, make every effort to do what is best for your student to the best of our capability should the need arise. </p><p> </p><p>Sincerely, </p><p>Gregory Brucker, Principal</p>

Cognitive behavioral therapy is one of the most effective forms of therapy. It works by helping you understand and change the thoughts, feelings and behaviors that are causing you problems. AbilitiCBT works the same way, but online. AbilitiCBT’s user-friendly platform makes it convenient to get help when you need it, where you need it. Our AbilitiCBT offering includes a special program to help you address anxiety symptoms related to the uniquely challenging aspects of pandemics: uncertainty, isolation, caring for family and community members, information overload and stress management.:<span> </span><a href="https://ontario.abiliticbt.com/home" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" data-auth="NotApplicable" style="margin:0px;padding:0px;border:0px none;font:inherit;vertical-align:baseline;">https://ontario.abiliticbt.com/home</a></span></p>
