Dear Sabre Families,
On behalf of the Salisbury staff, we would like to wish you a safe and happy holiday season.
While there have been many challenges during this past calendar year, there are many things we look forward to in 2021!
Collectively, we are so looking forward to seeing our students back in school in the new year. Our students have been an inspiration for all that they have gone through and have, in many ways, set the tone in terms of what is to come post pandemic. Resilience, respect, responsibility, and compassion are but a few key words that have resonated when we see what our students are doing on a daily basis.
With vaccinations having already started and more on the horizon, there will be a day that we are back to what we have become accustomed to as a school community and society. I know our Sabre families are doing all they can do in following public health orders so we can see our number of cases in the Province and community drastically decline.
When we do return on January 6, we are close to the end of quarter 2. The January Exam schedule is below is posted below.
While the method of instructional delivery is currently online for all of our students and the plan set forth by the Provincial government is a return to class on January 11, which we are all hoping for, do know and rest assured that the SAL staff are ready for whichever scenario we need to pivot to.
In closing, take care and continue to let us know if you have any questions, concerns or feedback.
