Dear Parents and Guardians,
It is my hope that summer has treated you well. The weather has been fantastic and has offered ample opportunity to enjoy our Island. It is difficult to believe that another school year is upon us. Next week our schools will be abuzz with activity as our students will be back after a long absence. There is no doubt that we are fortunate to have the opportunity to go back to in-person, full-time schooling under favorable conditions. However, I do realize that with all the excitement comes some nervousness and worry. Please be assured that we at the Public Schools Branch continue to collaborate with provincial authorities and the Chief Public Health Office to ensure the safety and well-being of our students. Moreover, the staff at our 56 schools are ready and will be supporting your children during these challenging times. School specific details will continue to be communicated with you as next week unfolds. I would also invite you to check out our social media posts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. In the meantime, I want to thank you for your cooperation and support and wish you well for the long weekend!
