Communication to Families

Linden Christian School has been keeping school families informed regarding school and government responses to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

What We are Doing At Linden

Today, perhaps more than ever, we remain steadfast in our mission to provide a Christ-centered education that equips students to love and serve God. Our commitment to excellence in providing Kindergarten to Grade 12 education remains–it will just be delivered differently. To help ensure academic continuity for our students we are using an online approach to education to reinforce routine and stability for students. Our exceptional teaching staff have prepared and adapted their instruction to an online environment. We not only appreciate the teachers, but also the various support and IT staff that have invested countless hours to facilitate this transition.

Linden Christian will not be assigning any schoolwork during the Spring Break (March 30 to April 3) or on Good Friday (April 10) and Easter Monday (April 13). Online and supported learning will resume Monday, April 6.

Premier Brian Pallister and the Minister of Education Kelvin Goertzen announced on March 31 that classroom learning has been suspended indefinitely for this school year. The Province’s expectation for K-12 students to be actively engaged in remote learning remains.

Linden Christian School continues with its commitment to maintain excellence in programming. Following Spring Break, Administration will revisit the online and supported learning plan with a view to developing a longer-term plan.
