Covid Update: Masks

To our students and families:

This evening, the Ministry of Education provided updated guidelines for K-12 schools that are effective immediately.

"All staff and students in Grades 4 to 12 are required to wear a mask . . . indoors in schools and on school buses – both within and outside of their learning group. Students in Grades K to 3 are encouraged to wear a mask indoors in schools and on school buses, but are not required to do so – mask wearing remains a personal or family/caregiver choice for these students, and their choices must be respected."

There are a few exceptions (like while eating/drinking and during high intensity physical activities). If you have concerns about your child wearing a mask during school, please call our office.

This added safety measure is to do everything possible to keep schools open for the benefit of our students, parents, and staff. We will do our best to help provide masks where needed, but please join us in ensuring your child has a clean mask available to them each day.

Please continue to do a daily health check with your children before they come to school and encourage them to participate in the other guidelines we will continue to follow, such as frequent hand cleaning, staying within learning groups, physical distancing, and additional cleaning.

In times of uncertainty, when I feel more anxious, I have a Bible verse that helps and thought I’d share it with you now:
"Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you." 1 Peter 5:7

Together we will get through the other side of this.

Thank you for your participation in doing what we can to stay safe and give your children a quality education.

Mrs. Atherton
