Skwo:wech Elementary to open after Spring Break!

Dear students, parents and caregivers,

With slightly qualified excitement, we’re reaching out to share good news!

We are currently on track to receive our occupancy permits for the new Skwo:wech Elementary, in time for us to do the move between schools over Spring Break.

This means Skwo:wech Elementary students and staff will get to return from Spring Break through the open doors of the beautiful new school our teams have been working so hard to build.

As we have shared in previous communications over this school year, in order to enable our staff to have time to both pack their classroom items for the movers, and provide time to set up new spaces, we will need to shift to temporary home learning options for students for one day before and one day after the scheduled move.

That means the school will be closed for in-class instruction on both Friday March 11th and Monday March 28th, with teachers ready to provide limited at-home assignments in advance, to enable continued learning over the two days for parents who would like that option. We are asking families to support this exciting move by providing or finding child care options for those two days. But, if that is not possible or would be a hardship for your family, please reach out to Principal Chad to coordinate structured supervision we can make available through regular school hours.

We’re so excited to be this close to the long-awaited move-in, and we will certainly follow up with you should there be any unforeseen challenges to this schedule.

Principal Chad will be reaching out soon to provide you all with more information about how we will welcome students into their new school, on Tuesday March 29th.

Thank you for your patience, cooperation and shared excitement about the opportunities this new space will provide students, staff and families in the community.

Sincerely,
Karim Hachlaf
Superintendent of Schools / CEO
