September Opening

Dear Harry Sayers Parent Community

September has been a challenging yet satisfying startup for our school and community. After the initial decision to restart school by the Provincial Health Authority, many families had to make the difficult decision around attending school face to face. It was satisfying to see the many students who returned to school and the trust you as a community put in us to restart the school safely.

Within the startup, there are many heroes. I would like to start by recognizing all our Harry Sayers staff for welcoming the children back with open arms and a kind heart. I would also like to thank the Sr. Management team at the school board office along with the District Health and Safety Officers who created a plan that looked after the employees and students.

As we move through the year, there will be many challenges. None of us have ever been through a pandemic before. Our thoughts are to keep us safe and keep the learning going forward. Attending school face to face for children is of utmost importance. We need to be courageous, persevere, and be resilient. Schools have a positive effect on child and youth cognitive, social, emotional & physical well-being. Together we can do this.
