LINKS Fall Distance Program

Dear LINKS families, 

I hope everyone has had a happy and healthy Summer.  As many of you know, the HRCE schools are  limiting use of their facilities to the public in keeping with the current Back to School plan, and as such, the LINKS program will not be able to run in-person programming for our Fall term.

However, over the Summer, we successfully launched our LINKS Distance model of online instruction! This Fall we will once again offer distance programming for students, running from the last week of September into December as after school, at-home instruction. This program is entirely online, therefore, students who participate must have access to the follow:

  • Students must have access to a reliable internet connection
  • Students must have access to a device capable of running Google Suite and in-browser aps
    • if not already integrated into their primary device, students will need access to headphones/speakers, a microphone, and a camera.
    • Smartphones are discouraged as a primary device due to limitations posed by screen size.

For your convenience, the 2020 Fall Distance LINKS registration form is attached.  You may register by phone (902.423.0577), fax (902.422.3725), email (links@chisholm4children.ca ) or in person (5724 South St, Halifax).  Contact Becca at 902.423.0577 with any questions regarding registration.

We look forward to seeing you in the new term at LINKS!
