April 21, 2021 Weekly E-Letter and OLS Spring Auction Update

By April 21, 2021 No Comments

Dear Parents,

COVID UPDATE! – IMPORTANT!

Yesterday’s update of our BC Covid numbers indicate that we are now in a more serious 3rd wave of COVID.

Again, all we can do is continue to daily screen, keep children home if they are not well or showing any of the cold or flu symptoms, and to let the office know if there are any potential exposure risks. It may take several days for us to be notified by FH or VCH, therefore, call the office if you are unsure of what to do. Also, all non-essential travel has now been banned, as well travel for pleasure outside your health regions. We are being asked to STAY LOCAL!  We ask if there are any risk of exposures or positive cases in your homes, please keep all siblings home for the full 2 weeks, or when they have been cleared from isolation.

We will continue to monitor and update you on all announcements from the Ministry of Health and from the Ministry of Education.

Please review school masks guidelines on the OLS website under document section.

AGAIN, Due to the higher risk of spread, we are stopping ALL special event treats from home effective immediately, i.e., Easter, spring, or summer treats, etc.

Thank you to all of our students, staff and families who are doing all they can to keep all of the OLS Community Safe!
