March 11, 2022: Letter for families from Superintendent Dhillon

March 11, 2022 11:06 AM

Dear families,

As most of our schools move into spring break, I want to once again express my deep gratitude to staff, families, and students for rising to the challenges presented by this pandemic. Thanks to the dedication and tenacity of our staff, we were able to keep all schools open during the Omicron wave that followed winter break. I extend my sincere thanks to staff at every level of our organization, and wish all our school communities and families a restful and well-deserved break.

If your family is travelling over the break, please remember to review and follow any federal requirements as posted on the Government of Canada website (https://travel.gc.ca/travel-covid/travel-restrictions/covid-vaccinated-travellers-entering-canada#children). I would also like to take this opportunity to share a number of important provincial updates, which I have posted below. Should any other updates be issued over the spring break that may impact our schools, I will share these with you as they become available.

March 3, 2022: Letter for families regarding world events

March 3, 2022 3:14 PM

Dear families,

The events unfolding in Ukraine can be upsetting for adults and children alike. It is often hard to know how to reassure our children when we ourselves are also working to understand tragic events. Children may experience a wide range of emotions in response to what they hear or see about the unfolding events. It is important to remember that they will look to the adults in their lives to help them feel safe and to make sense of the world. As a parent or caregiver, you may feel unprepared to help your child understand and process the messages around them. We are reaching out to share with you some strategies and resources that will help guide your conversations with your child and will help them put scary events into perspective. (more…)

Jan. 6, 2022: Update for families from Superintendent Dhillon

January 6, 2022 3:38 PM

Dear families,

As you know, the return to school for students in K-12 after winter break was phased in to give school communities time to implement updated safety guidelines and for staff to plan for potential disruption to in-school learning. I am writing to share with you our contingency planning to ensure continuity of learning in the event of a functional school closure due to staff shortages, and to provide you with information about some of the enhanced health and safety measures that are being implemented in schools across the district.
