Families learning from


In NLPS we recognize that some families have made difficult choices that result in some of our learners at home at this time.   We want to support you to provide your child with opportunities to continue to learn and grow.  This page will give you some ideas for students to delve into literacy, numeracy, social emotional learning and some technology suggestions.  

We are looking forward to seeing your child at their home school again very soon!

Please take a moment to watch this informative video with our Superintendent, Scott Saywell and SD69 Superintendent Kevin Elder, as they ask Island Heath MHO, Dr. Sandra Allison,  questions about COVID and schools.    

Please see yourselves as parents first. There is no need to be an expert on learning from home.  Learning from home is not expected to be the same as in face-to-face classrooms. We know that this experience is different for all families and situations.  Together we will continue to help your child grow and learn during this unprecedented time.


Working, parenting and teaching are three different jobs. These jobs cannot be done at the same time. Do the best you can. Rather than choosing between roles (parenting, working, teaching), ALWAYS choose making a CONNECTION with your child. Play a game, do laundry together, laugh and snuggle. Remind your children that they are safe and their school community is missing them.

This website includes links to suggestions for parents and caregivers to keep children learning at home during the COVID-19 pandemic.
