LEADERSHIP MESSAGE

Dear St. Pat's families,


What an interesting year it has been-full of obstacles and challenging transitions for students, staff and families. It is definitely not the ending or closure we wanted but rather, our current reality. Nevertheless-congratulations on another successful school year. You made it!! We wish all of our families a wonderful summer full of new memories and fun. We look forward to the Fall where we are hopeful we will see all of you again September 1st-our first day back for 2020-2021.


Our staff will spend our last week deliberating and planning for our Fall re-entry back to school. As you know, we will plan under the advice of our Chief Medical Officer and guidance of EICS. The Ministry and our school division have provided guidelines for re-entry for all 3 scenario's and we will continue to work through this as a staff planning specifically for St. Pat's. As always, the safety of our students will ultimately guide our decisions. Our protocols will be clearly communicated to our families prior to our return in September. Please watch for a newsletter in late Summer as we know more.


Mrs. Nanias and I are thrilled to be returning for our 4th year together as your Leadership team for 2020-2021! We are also very excited about our staff next year as there has been some changes. We wish those who are moving on from St. Pat's the very best.


May God bless all of our families during summer break.
