Expectations for Students
During times of remote learning, it is important that students make deliberate efforts to ensure their well-being. Critical to this well-being is the development of a routine. A daily schedule that includes time for school, physical activity, socializing (even if online), regular mealtimes, and consistent and sufficient sleeping hours is key to maintaining a balanced and healthy lifestyle.
Ways to maximize the learning experience and promote well-being during remote learning:
Have a workspace that allows you to concentrate. It should:
- be in a quiet location
- be at a desk or table
- have good lighting
Take appropriate breaks:
- stretch and move
- get a healthy snack
- make the break tech free
- If possible, go outside sometime during the day.
- Spend time after school doing something you enjoy.
- Get at least 8 hours of sleep every night.
- Eat healthy meals.

Student Agreements and Online Etiquette
As always, CDNIS students are expected to use technology in a positive, responsible and respectful manner. Online behaviour must always follow the CDNIS Responsible User Agreements:
For all classroom video communication, the following etiquette should be followed:
Remote lessons will take place in real time and, in accordance with privacy guidelines, will not be recorded. Students are expected to be fully engaged throughout the lesson. Attendance will be taken and closely monitored. If a teacher wishes to create recorded materials in advance of the lesson and share these with students, they are encouraged to do so.
When a student is absent from a class or classes due to illness or other factors, parents must notify the school via the student absence reporting in the Parent Portal.
