On Saturday, May 9th the graduates of Clarenville High School would have been celebrating their graduation day. While they are not able to celebrate right now the way they had planned, the parents of the class of 2020 are asking the community to show your support to help honour our graduates.

How can you show your support on May 9th?

  • decorate the inside of your home

  • honk your horn as you drive by the house of a graduate
  • send a message to a graduate to acknowledge their success

Thank you from the parents of the class of 2020

School Information: COVID-19 Coronavirus, March 23rd

Hi students and parents, here are a few of the most recent updates. If you need anything or have questions feel free to email me, michaelspurrell1@nlesd.ca.

  • Access to school has been limited to caretakers and administrators. All student lockers have been cleaned and the contents have been labelled and stored safely. If there are any items you need due to an emergency please email me.
  • Presently there's no information regarding collecting or returning textbooks. If you have a text at home please hold on to it until we receive further direction.
  • On a positive note, we have donated 58 cases of juice and 10 large boxes of bagels to the local food bank!
  • I am expecting to receive information regarding course work and grades later this week. Please understand that this is a very complex issue. The Newfoundland Department of Education/ School District has to consider graduation requirements, credits, accommodations, scholarships and post secondary entrance requirements.

Presently, the Newfoundland and Labrador English School District is launching a resource to assist and guide families with continued learning opportunities while in-school instruction remains suspended. The resource, Learning at Home: Good at Learning-Good at Life (http://learningathome.nlesd.ca) is a Google site, a platform familiar to our students and staff. The site will provide opportunities to foster a passion for learning through engaging online and offline adventures and activities.

For now, there is no expectation for families to be teachers and there is no expectation for teachers to assign grades or values to any work students complete while they are at home. However, students are encouraged to share their learning and routines with their teachers for feedback.


Take Care,

Mr. Spurrell
