Principal’s Message- March 23, 2020

Date: March 23, 2020 Author: Julie Fram-Greig Categories: Principal's Message

Good morning everyone

I hope that you are all keeping well and busy in these stressful times.   Yesterday at his press conference, the Premier of Quebec, Mr. Francois Legault, announced an extension of school/centre closures to at least May 1st.  At the same press conference the Minister of Education, Mr. Jean-Francois Roberge, announced that there will be no ministry exams this year.  He also announced that the ministry is working on resources for parents/students that will be available as of March 30th. (more details to come).  We will send you any information that we have as soon as it is available.  I know that this likely raises many questions for you, and we will hopefully have more information soon.

 

Our daycare was open last week until Thursday at noon for emergency services to health care workers.  We were not needed at this time, so they have closed it with the idea that we could reopen on short notice if there becomes a need in our community.  Thanks to the team who came in those days to work, organize and clean the daycare areas so we are ready to go!

 

The WQSB communications team will continue to update their social media and website as more information becomes available:  https://westernquebec.ca/

 

Please stay safe and healthy over these next few weeks.  Enjoy this gift of family time where we can actually slow down our lives, reflect, connect with nature, eat well, sleep and exercise daily…there are positives to this situation.  Wishing you all the best, and think of how wonderful it will be when we can see each other in person again!!
