We are happy to report that the measures put in place – and the diligence of our students, families, and staff in following our safety protocols – have kept our school community as safe as possible. We are finishing our sixth week of school with the majority of our students learning onsite full-time. It hasn’t been easy, but it has been successful.
Our safety protocols at both campuses are age/site appropriate. They are founded on the best scientific evidence available to us, guided by the Ministries of Health and Education, and have been developed in consultation with public healthcare experts. These stringent measures have helped us to mitigate the risks posed by COVID-19 and provide a rich and robust educational experience for our students that exceeds what many schools are able to provide at this time.
We want to acknowledge the difficulty of keeping your children home when they are sick and isolating while awaiting test results. I experienced this personally. Last week, I was housebound and attempted to work from home while caring for my 5-year-old son who had developed cold symptoms. We had him tested for COVID-19 at a drive-up site, and we gratefully received his negative result 48 hours later.
Our school administration and the CRT would like to take a moment to thank all of you for working hard to support our success. We ask that you keep up your efforts. So far so good, but we still have a long road ahead. Thank you for your continued care, sacrifice, and diligence in supporting the wellbeing of our community.
“So in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.” ~ Romans 12:5
