Dear SCS Community,

Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry and Health Minister Adrian Dix announced 24 new cases of COVID-19 in B.C. over the past two days (9 new cases Sunday and 15 new cases today), bringing the total number of cases to 2597. The joint statement will soon be posted on the Ministry of Health newsroom – https://news.gov.bc.ca/ministries/health
PARENTS – please read! Minister Fleming along with BC Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils and la Fédération des parents francophones de la C.-B have written a letter to parents. Please the letter available in English, French and Chinese on our website at: www.gov.bc.ca/SafeSchools
Our hope in sending out this communication is that you can have the most up-to-date information and can plan accordingly. With that in mind, the following points should be noted:
These are unique times in which we find ourselves journeying together. I would invite each of us to exercise caution, not only for ourselves but also for those in our community for whom this virus presents a much higher risk. Let’s collectively commit to praying for and supporting each other as a community.
While this is certainly a turbulent time, we also remain hopeful and optimistic knowing that our world belongs to God, and that He holds all of this in the palm of His hand. We continue to ask that you hold up our school community, and the health of our larger global community, in prayer. If you have further questions, please speak to your child’s campus principal.
