For those families who were not able to attend the move-in day, the welcome chat with parents is in a letter that has been posted to the Matthews’ House Edsby news feed. If you have not joined this Edsby group yet, it is an area where some announcements are posted, some photos are posted, and items like the agenda for the House meetings is posted.
The students in Matthews have been learning new routines for morning and evening sign-ins which occur at mealtimes. These are the safety check-ins to ensure face-to-face contact with the students. The students are also responsible for having their lights out and their electronics away at a certain time of the night. If they do need to speak with you after curfew because of time differences, they need to let the duty teacher know of their plans.
