Principal’s September 2020 Note…

We miss all of our students and are excited to teach and interact with our students once again.  It was a long March break.  I am looking forward to hearing and seeing all of our students.  Your child’s physical and mental well-being is a top priority to us this year.  We are working even harder to develop stronger relationships with each other, our students and our community.  This year is a very different year, unlike any other we have experienced.  

Please see our opening plan and video on our website, or via our Facebook Group, L’nu Sipuk Kina’muokuom.  Please be patient as some of our plans have been changing since we have announced our original plans.  Covid is new to all of us and we are working diligently to provide a safe learning environment for all of our students as we are provided with new information.  We will no longer be washing masks because it was recommended to us to air dry all masks, rather than using the dryer.  In addition, we will be taking temperatures by the wrists and following the new Covid symptoms update.  Things are changing rapidly but we feel it is important to communicate as much as possible, as soon as possible, especially when things change.

We understand parents’ and students’ anxiety is on the rise.  We have been told the world is unsafe and we have modelled to our children that the world is unsafe.  Our staff members also have an increase in their anxiety.  The only way we can overcome this is if we work together by communicating, supporting one another, and modelling kindness.  Please feel free to reach out to us at any time as building strong relationships is one of our top priorities this year.
