Alert Level 2: Tuesday update

Level 2 … you would think we’d all be quite used to this by now, as I think this is the 4th time we’ve been in Alert Level 2 in the last 18 months.  With that said, each time we change levels, there are some changes.  With that in mind I thought it would be…

Covid-19: Thursday update

There’s nothing new to share today really. I guess that’s update-worthy though. It’s worth reiterating that as of about 5pm today, we’re still in lockdown until tomorrow night.   With that said, the staff continue to prepare for the possibility of an extended period of learning from home.  The Ministry of Education is doing the same, and…
