Good morning Hawks,
Last week, the Minister announced that we would not be returning to school for the remainder of this year. We are so sad to hear this news and we continue to hope for a quick resolution to the many safety issues that we have as a part of large gatherings. Hopefully, things will return to “normal” for September. Whatever the case, please know that we miss you all greatly and we can’t wait to get back to a point when we can gather, see your smiling faces and once again, begin to learn together! Stay strong during the days and weeks until that can happen! If you ever need anything, please do not hesitate to reach out!
Remember, we still have 4 weeks left of school and we encourage you to continue engaging in your distance learning. We want to ensure that learning can continue, so that when we are back to school, it is like we never left! I realize it is a challenge with the current status of the school year, and the nice weather, but it is important!
As you know we are making plans for the pick up of personal items, drop off of school items (library books, text books etc.), the delivery of report cards and all of the other necessary items to wrap up this year and to start next year on the right foot. As that information becomes available, we will share it with you on your child’s virtual Classrooms and Newswire.
MONDAY MESSAGES TO OUR HAWKS:
