Birchwood Update

Dear Parents,

It was brought to our attention by parents, there are confirmed cases of chicken pox at our school.  As Principal, I was made aware of this today and as a result wanted to raise awareness and communicate to you. As a school we will be contacting the PSB and Officials at the Office of the Chief Public Health Officer to report and follow any course of action if necessary. We will continue to monitor the situation and report accordingly back to you.

Principal
