School Development Surveys for Parents/Guardians

April 13, 2021

Subject: Request for Feedback – Family Survey

Dear Parent/Guardian,

School Development Surveys are conducted annually to gather feedback from students, staff, and parents/guardians to inform the school development process. The survey results will be provided to your child’s school and used with other data to identify the school’s strengths and challenges. Your child’s school will then create and implement a plan to build on successes and address areas of challenge.

The survey is anonymous, which means that we cannot connect your survey responses to you. We encourage everyone to participate so that we have the most accurate representation of family perceptions at your school.

The Family Survey will be available on February 8, 2021. Please complete the survey by April 23, 2021 by clicking on the following link: If you do not have internet access contact your school.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the school development surveys, please contact:

          Allan Johnson at 709-729-7831 or [email protected] or

         Patricia Emberley at 709-729-6850 or [email protected]

Thank you for your participation and for being a valued member of your school community.

A message for NLESD 2021 Graduates

Below is a message from NLESD for the graduates of 2021:

“District staff and administrators have been hearing the concerns of high school students, particularly those graduating this year, about how this unusual year may be impacting on their level of preparedness for their continued education. I both understand and empathize with the upheaval and uncertainty that the public health emergency has meant to not only the lives of students, but of families, school staff members, and essentially every aspect of our communities.

We reached out to our partners in education, Memorial University and the College of the North Atlantic to share the following message with our students.

The continued learning and success of our students are among the reasons our organizations strive every day to provide quality educational opportunities. In the face of Covid-19 and its continued impacts, we are all more committed than ever to helping you realize your full potential”

Chromebook Agreement Deadline – Important

Please note that NLESD are only sending a new Chromebook to the school IF the student has a signed Chromebook agreement form on file at the office. For example: while Holy Heart is allotted for 1017 Chromebooks, we currently only have 486 loan agreement forms in place. NLESD will ONLY send devices for the 486.

Please note that any student who DOES NOT have their Chromebook loan agreement forms submitted WILL NOT be entitled to receive a Chromebook when they arrive in a few weeks.

The deadline to have these forms into the office to be included in the first shipment will be Wednesday, March 24, 2021.

This is the 5th and final call for these forms.

Below are links to the forms REQUIRED to be submitted to the office or scanned and emailed to [email protected]

Information regarding Prom 2021

Many people have been inquiring on the status of the year-end prom celebration HHM has traditionally hosted. 

As you are aware, we are currently operating in an virtual setting with bi-weekly updates that direct us accordingly. Due to the little control HHM maintains in this situation, we are unable to provide details regarding what this event will look like or even if one will be permitted, as we have to adjust to the changing rules and regulations of the province’s CMO.

In the event that there is a celebration, it will be held on Thursday, June 24, 2021.

I caution all around spending for this event based on the above.
