Letter from our President & CEO
Dear Pathway School Community,
Since the beginning of this pandemic in March of last year, The Pathway School has set out to keep everyone in our school community informed and up-to-date as we have all faced the numerous implications of COVID-19. This page is dedicated to providing our community with timely, easy to access information as we navigate new ways to run our school and to continue to promote student learning. This page provides you with access to our formal school reopening plan, our COVID-19 guidance document, health and safety protocols, frequently asked questions, and other important resources. In addition, separately we have provided, or will be providing information pertaining to our COVID-19 testing plan and contact tracing protocols. We hope that this information helps address some of your most pressing questions and concerns.
We know this past year has presented many challenges and will continue to require flexibility from everyone in our school community. We remain committed to doing all we can to adapt our learning models to help our students continue to successfully learn and grow. We will continuously adopt protocols to keep our school and everyone in the Pathway Community as healthy and safe as possible.
Please let us know how we can be of assistance.
President and CEO
