Distance Learning

While our students are at home, our teachers are reaching out to families through the Internet to provide opportunities for learning from a distance. Distance Learning will begin the week of April 6.

If your student’s teacher has not yet contacted your family after April 6th with information on how best to connect, please email them from the contact list on this website. Most of our junior and intermediate students will connect with their teachers through a Google Classroom. Many of our younger students are connecting to their classrooms through Google Sites. Their teachers will be reaching out to all families with contact information.

The following resources are available to help our students continue their learning at home and connect with their teachers. 

Accessing Resources

Students using Google Classroom, D2L or Moodle may access their online classes from the Student Mobile Campus link at the top of this site. Students log in using their DDSB credentials (student number followed by @ddsbstudent.ca and their password). If your child does not know their login information, please contact their teacher for help. 

For the most consistent experience, we encourage the use of a Chrome browser, if possible.  To avoid “You need permission and Access errors”, families may wish to create a Chrome profile for each student in the  household.
