Important Update Due To COVID-19 Concerns

 
Dear Blyth Academy Community,

The Ontario government has made the decision to close all publicly funded schools for two weeks following March Break due to COVID-19 concerns. The safety of our students is Blyth Academy’s number one priority. All Blyth Academy campuses will also be closed from March 14-April 5. Please note that today’s (Friday, March 13) academic schedule will continue as planned.

A robust plan is in place to ensure classes and learning continues to the highest standards.

We recognize that families continue to have questions regarding March Break travel. Yesterday, Public Health issued an update regarding travel over March Break. It provides answers to frequently asked questions, and can be viewed by clicking here. While it is specific to Toronto, the information applies to all of our communities. Please read the attached information carefully.

As always, we will keep staff, students and community updated as new information becomes available.

Thank you for your support as we work to help keep our communities healthy and safe.

Thank you.

Kathy Young Signature

Kathy Young
Chief Academic Officer, Blyth Academy

Effective March 17, 2020, Blyth Academy is a remote organization in hopes of doing our part to slow the spread of COVID-19. We will be receiving all emails, phone calls, and voicemails and are dedicated to maintaining business as usual. Thank you for your continued support!

Though our doors are temporarily closed, the minds of our students will remain open. Our students will continue their academic journey through virtual classrooms, to ensure our students don’t miss out on valuable curriculum hours. Our small class sizes and individualized approach will continue in a virtual model, as will the structure that students need to be engaged and successful during the closure. Live virtual classes, office hours, guidance support and even extracurricular activities will continue through virtual tools. In these uncertain times, we believe that our students benefit greatly from the structure, social interaction and support their school provides them.

Blyth Academy is committed to providing students with personalized instruction and support, focusing on critical and creative thinking skills, and nurturing curiosity, innovation and student leadership. We are also committed to providing ongoing communication between the school and families.
