Update on Student Computer Account Information Request

We have received many requests for student computer account information. For a short period of time, we are not taking any new requests so we can “catch up”!  Please note, that when the Public Schools Branch calls you back, the call will appear as “blocked caller” – please answer so we can give you the information!  Also, please only submit one request per student! We will get back to you as soon as we can!

Home Learning Resources

In light of the school closures, the Department of Education and Lifelong Learning is providing ongoing learning opportunities for students while at home. We recommend home learning that focuses on three key areas; health and well-being, literacy and numeracy.

You can support ongoing learning with these initial activities. Additional learning resources will be posted on Wednesday, March 25th.

For those who do not have Internet access, we are working to provide off-line access to activities.

We appreciate that this is a challenging time for families and the learning opportunities are provided as time permits in your household.

COVID-19 Update – Classes Cancelled

In a media briefing Sunday evening, March 15, 2020, P.E.I.’s Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Heather Morrison and Minister of Education and Lifelong Learning Brad Trivers announced the closures of child-care centres and public schools in response to COVID-19 on P.E.I.

Public schools across the Island will be closed for two weeks following March break. This means that PSB schools are now set to re-open on Monday, April 6.

The purpose of cancelling classes is to try to prevent further transmission of COVID-19 through self-isolation and social distancing.  Public Health experts are urging everyone to be aggressive in their efforts to “flatten the curve”.

The main priorities of the PSB remain to ensure students are safe, and to encourage learning.

PSB staff are working diligently to put plans in place to support students, parents and school staff during the closure period.

Please stay tuned for further information. Everyone’s support and patience is appreciated.
