A Time of New Beginnings, with Cautious Optimism
Spring is a time of new beginnings. The cold expanse of winter has come to an end, life is returning (both from afar and anew). For those who celebrate, it is also Easter; a time of the greatest new beginning and new life. It is then, very fitting that we find ourselves in a time of new beginnings when it comes to this virus that has shackled us for so long. Many people in our communities and beyond have received their first doses of the vaccine, this has created a sense that we can breathe again, that life can begin to return to normal. It is a time of new freedoms both courtesy of the weather and of our fight against this virus. However, I beg you to be cautious. We can see the light, but we are not at the end yet. If you are following what is happening in Regina and surrounding communities you know that we are not completely safe from the impacts of this virus that we all felt not too long ago. We are blessed to be able to remain in face-to-face instruction and to even have some extracurricular starting up. We must all be aware that this did not happen by fluke chance; it happened because we are all being vigilant, cautious, and responsible. I ask you most sincerely, over the Easter break, to continue this vigilance, caution, and responsibility. It is our hope that we can continue as we are from now until June and be able to celebrate with our grads on June 25, and we will if we all do our parts. This Easter break enjoy the renewal of life that is all around us and get out ad enjoy the beauty of nature in our backyard, but please, whatever you do, do so carefully and in a COVID responsible manner. It will only take 1 weakness in our armor to bring all that we have built over the last several months crashing down.
From Leslie, Amanda, Noah and myself; Happy Easter!
