2020 - 2021 School Year - This year the Ukrainian Program will have a different delivery model. Given the Chief Medical Health Officer's guidelines, we will not be providing transportation for students to take part in additional programs during the school day. This means your child will not be transported from their home school to St. Matthew for Ukrainian classes. This also means that we will not be able to establish a safe delivery model in their home school during the regular school day.
In consultation with our two Ukrainian teachers, Mrs. Kohuch and Mrs. Zwarych and working within the parameters of the Chief Medical Officer's guidelines and Regina Catholic School guidelines, we have come up with the following delivery option. The program will have a two-prong approach to delivery, online instruction and information as well as face-to-face instruction. The program will run on Wednesday and Thursday evenings at St. Matthew School.
Wednesday – 4:30 – 6:30 p.m.
Thursday – 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
We are allowing parents to bring their children on either of those evenings. Grades 1-4 will be with Mrs. Kohuch and grades 5-8 will be with Mrs. Zwarych. We will no longer be using the day system since that no longer applies, as our classes will be after school. Therefore, parents can bring their students on either of those days when it works best for their schedule. We are trying to be as flexible as we can with our delivery model during these unprecedented times. Every Monday there will be an online component sent to the parents for the students to work through, this would take the form of lesson plans, songs, poems, prayers and websites. This can be accessed when it best suits the family's schedule.
The student's health and safety is paramount to us and we will ensure that all sanitization protocols set out by the Chief Medical Health Officer as well as Regina Catholic Schools will be followed to the letter.
