Principal's Message

June 9, 2020

​Dear Rideau Families:
Every person in our community is approaching each day in a life we weren’t prepared to adjust to so quickly.  There continue to be many unanswered questions which hamper our ability to plan and prepare.  These days, we most often sit in a space of unknowing which creates uneasiness for us.  I find myself focused on the Covid 19 Reports each day.  I am not sure why but somehow it is my way to make meaning.  As human beings, we like to be planned, prepared and predict the future.
 
The pandemic has quickly eroded our comfort. 
 
I think that it is okay to give ourselves permission to feel a bit overwhelmed.  We are all doing our best and though cliché “ We are definitely in this together”.  We are in it ,without all of the answers.
 
We understand how difficult ongoing learning is for our students, and our families ,and our teachers.  What I do know is that everyone is doing their very best.  One thing that is certain, is that we all get up every morning to give our best – No matter what the day throws at us!
 
I would like to propose something that we can all work on together.  The notion of Social Responsibility.  We all have a responsibility to self-care, self-health, and self-safety.  Social Responsibility adds to our thinking so that we include our role in the care, health and safety of our Rideau Community.
 
At this time, we are unsure of what will unfold for learning this fall.  We must trust in the decisions that will be put before us.  Our role however, is in how prepared we can be and how we can prepare our children and students for what might unfold.
 
Social Responsibility will include our development of daily routines and practices that enhance our self-care, health and safety to that of our community.  Examples of Social Responsibity include:
 
            Regularly practicing                Hand washing
                                                            Sanitation
                                                            Social Distancing
                                                            Healthy eating
                                                            Listening to our bodies
                                                            Knowing when we don’t feel well
                                                            Being aware of our surroundings
                                                            Coughing or Sneezing into our elbow
                                                            Wearing a mask when inside with a 
                                                              group
                                                            Being outdoors as much as possible 
                                                              and thus dressing for the weather
                                                            Smiling 
                                                            Using our words to express our 
                                                               needs

By taking the time to engage in Social Responsibility, to practice the habits of our new social norms, and to teach our children so that these become ingrained in their way of being, we all focus on a goal and we are prepared for whatever we face this fall. 

This is something for us to work on.  This gives us purpose and makes us stronger for ourselves and for our Rideau community.
