Dear Blyth Port Credit families,

I hope that you are enjoying these final weeks of summer, and looking forward to the beginning of a new academic year, as we are here at the campus.

I wanted to personally announce an exciting event in the development of our school. For the beginning of classes on Monday, September 9, we will be inaugurating a new campus location at the historic Adamson Estate. The site is located just 5 minutes from our present campus, at Cawthra Road and Lakeshore on the Eastern edge of Port Credit. Our beautiful new building overlooks the lake, and is situated amidst a serene public area which offers our students a brilliant environment in which to study and play. (I encourage you to search for images on Google to enjoy the stunning views on display.)

We are tremendously excited to be moving into this more expansive and historic site, which will enrich our programs immeasurably in the years to come, and enable us to continue our growing success in the Mississauga community. We hope you will join us in embracing this new venture, and look forward to issuing more information about the campus and the start to a new academic year in the coming weeks.

Should you have any questions about the move, please feel free to contact us at any time.

Best,
Michael Booth

We look forward to, and appreciate your support and attendance.

Though our physical doors remain temporarily closed, the minds of our students stay open. Summer classes are continuing to meet on their regular daily schedules, in virtual classrooms with face-to-face instruction and peer interaction.  The Blyth Academy model of small class sizes, flexible scheduling and individualized approach have enabled us to remain faithful to our standards. Our commitment to ongoing and meaningful communication between school, teachers, students and families has been critical to this effort.

Although our students have transitioned into summer mode and COVID-19 restrictions have begun to loosen, we are looking ahead to what September will hold for our campuses and families.
We want to be clear - our preference and our priority is to get students back to our campuses, but we must ensure this is done in a safe and effective way. While we await official guidance from Public Health and the Ministry of Education, a "return to school" task force has been hard at work putting concrete operational plans in place for all likely scenarios. This includes a full return to campus with safeguards, a blended model of virtual and in-campus learning and the continuation of fully virtual classrooms. All scenarios will provide robust learning and live, daily instruction and interaction with teachers and peers. 
With ten campuses across Ontario, we realize that each one of our schools is a unique space and community. We will be implementing across-the-board policies on hand washing, facility cleaning and social distancing measures. Each school is also prepared to pivot individually based on the guidance of local health authorities and to best serve students and families. 
Our recent survey showed that over 80 per cent of Blyth Academy families are eager to return to campuses, and we are hard at work to prepare for this day. As September's scenario becomes clearer and more information becomes available, we will continue to communicate.
