I hope you are all doing well.
Here is some information for this week:
- We currently have ONE active case of Covid-19 in our school
Updated Health Protocols
- Please refer to the attached document from Public Health that provides a roadmap if your child is experiencing symptoms of Covid-19
- Please continue to monitor your children for symptoms and do not send them to school if they are feeling unwell
