Notice for Monday, June 28 - Keep Kids Home if Possible
​June 27, 2021 Letter to Parents/Guardians from Superintendent Morrow:

Dear parents/guardians,

With the forecast of extremely high temperatures tomorrow (Monday, June 28), we wanted to update you on the school district's plans for the day.

Schools will remain open and school buses (except for the route between Sayward and Campbell River) will be running, however, we are encouraging families to keep their children home if you can.

We recognize that district-wide closures can create stress and hardship for families and the health and safety of our students, staff and school community is always our priority. Staff will be reporting to work as usual and will be available to support students and parents.

We ask everyone to drink plenty of water, dress appropriately for the heat, bring a hat to wear outdoors and come to school with sunscreen. Bottled water will be available on school buses.

We will be monitoring the temperatures throughout the day as well as the forecast for Tuesday to make any additional adjustments that may be necessary.

Please continue to check your school or district website for updates on Monday for school status on Tuesday, June 29.

To help families further, here is additional information from the BC Centre for Disease Control regarding warm weather safety in light of COVID-19: http://www.bccdc.ca/about/news-stories/stories/2020/warm-weather-safety-in-a-time-of-covid-19

Thank you for your understanding,

Dr. Jeremy Morrow
Superintendent of Schools
