Lenten Project ***Now accepting donations link

Dear parents/Guardians. We will be supporting the Cumberland Resource Center Food Bank.  Donations will be accepted through Cumberland Resource Centre Starting tomorrow March 16th until Good Thursday April 1st.    We will not be collecting cans, packaged food etc.

Provincial and OPH Guideline:

The province has changed its screening tool to go back to one symptom so that if a student has only one symptom, the child needs to stay at home. The OPH screening tools have been updated. If your child has even 1 new or worsening symptom, then they must isolate for 10 days or until they receive confirmation of a negative test or alternate medical diagnosis.  This single-symptom criteria applies provincially.  And now all household members of that person who has a symptom and is isolating and being tested, must also stay home until the symptomatic person receives a negative test result or an alternate medical diagnosis. 


Remember to be COVIDWise:

• W – Wear a mask or face covering where required, or when you cannot maintain a physical distance of two metres (six feet)

.• I – Isolate yourself from others when you are sick (and get tested promptly if you have COVID-like symptoms).

• S – Stay two metres (six feet) apart from those outside your household.

• E – Exercise proper hand hygiene; wash your hands regularly or use sanitizer

         especially before touching your face.
