IMPORTANT!! Vaccine Information Session for Parents/Guardians of Children (5-11)

Vaccine Information Session for Parents/Guardians of Children (5-11)

Presenter: Dr. Kelly Grindrod, Associate Professor from the University of Waterloo School of Pharmacy

Date: December 2, 2021

Time: 7- 8:30 p.m.

Zoom Meeting Link

There will be an opportunity to ask questions following the presentation.

Vaccines are an important tool to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and allow families to safely resume normal activities. Although children and youth are less likely to get very sick from COVID-19 they can still:

  • Get sick from COVID-19
  • Be infected and not have any symptoms
  • Spread COVID-19 to others
  • Experience longer-term effects if they do get infected

COVID-19 vaccines authorized by Health Canada are safe, reliable, and can help protect you, your family, and our community from COVID-19. Learn more about the COVID-19 vaccines.

Children born in 2016 or earlier are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. Find information about how to get a vaccine.

Procedures When School Busses are Cancelled

For the 2021-2022 school year, schools will be closed to students on days where busses are cancelled due to inclement winter weather.  

Students are expected to be engaged in asynchronous learning and work will be posted by the classroom teacher by 9:30 am.

When buses are cancelled, school is cancelled and therefore food days for that day will be cancelled also.  The office will call the vendor the morning of to advise that the delivery is cancelled that day.  The Lunchbox Support Team will process credits back to the family’s accounts for the cancelled lunch order(s).  Parents with lunch orders placed will be issued a full credit to their Lunchbox account within 3 business days.  The credit will be applied to their next order at the time of check out.  If a parent prefers a refund, they may contact Support to have the funds returned to their payment card.

Thank you for your understanding in advance!
