Howay Tech Help

Hello Howay parents!

You should of received communication from your childs teachers by now.
Check your emails or call the school if you don’t have it

Are you having technical issues? Struggling to figure out some of the programs?

I will set up an event page on FB and people can ask questions, offer advice or say hello! Lets call it..Howay Tech help.

Please keep in mind this is all temporary. If the idea of homeschool/education creates too much stress for you or child/children, then don’t do it. Focus on creative play and other passive sources of natural education like naming colours you see when when you walk, counting stairs, playing board games etc. Right now keeping relationships strong and healthy is more important in the long run.

What can I do?

Most of us have never experienced at time like this in our lives. It is ok to feel mad, sad, angry, frustrated and uncertain- temporarily. Feel it, then choose an activity that you can control. All of this is temporary in the big picture. We willl all get through this if we work together, by staying apart.

PAC updates

As the next 2 months will be unprecedentedly unpredictable we have decided that its in our Howay  communities best interest to cancel   March & April Hot lunch and the Craft sale.
Many older students have participated in the Craft fair in the past at River market and we were hoping to continue that with some small changes. Unfortunately that will have to wait til 2021.

We will do our best to keep you informed of any changes or important information as we all navigate through this virus. Stay positive,  stay calm and wash your hands.
