Information From Last Week
Daily Health Check and What to Do When Sick: A friendly reminder to our students and visitors to complete a daily health check prior to boarding a bus or entering a school or District site such as the School Board Office. To help support families in doing their part to keep everyone safe, please review the Daily Health Check and What to Do When Sick guide here. This contains a list of COVID-19 symptoms and guidance on what to do if you become ill. As always, the District is encouraging everyone to continue practice proper hand washing and staying home when sick.
Student Learning Survey: An email went out last week about the parent portion of the Student Learning Survey. Once again, Dorothy Peacock will be participating in the Provincial Student Learning Survey. Below is a link to the instructions on how parents can complete this questionnaire, giving valuable feedback to both the district and our school specifically. We will be having our grade 4 & 7 students complete the survey in the next month along with our own staff. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Mr Davids directly.
Lessons Learned from COVID-19: Survey: The province has launched an independent review and public consultation on the government’s operational response to the COVID-19 pandemic to improve future preparations and responses to emergencies. The goal is to learn about how government agencies worked together to address the effects of COVID-19 that affected everyone and changed rapidly. To provide feedback, you are encouraged to complete an online survey here which is available in multiple languages versions. This survey will remain open until April 20, 2022 at 4:00pm. You can find more information here.
