Update for Students & Families

The 2nd edition of Nova Scotia’s At-Home Student Learning Package is being delivered this week via Saltwire’s flyer packages. It is also available at:

The 20-page handout is available in English and French, and is for children in Pre-Primary and students in grades Primary to 9. It contains information for learning at home and has assignments and projects focused on literacy and math.

We’re pleased to include play-based activities and games for Pre-Primary children in the learning package. We have heard from parents and families looking for ideas to help four-year-olds learn and have some fun at this time.

The package has been created by educators from all the Regional Centres for Education and Conseil scolaire acadien provincial, and Department staff, to ensure all students have access to quality learning experiences. We thank educators for their contribution.

More information on SaltWire delivery of learning packages is available at: or call 1-800-565-3339. If you already receive flyers you will receive the learning package.
