Dear William Roper Hull School
Families and Caregivers,
As we all
know by now, the past few weeks have seen unprecedented events effect our daily
lives to an extent never before seen in our lifetimes. The closure of classes
to students was a major decision made by the provincial government to help
flatten the curve of the COVID-19 pandemic, and we know that this has and will
continue to have a major impact for all of the students and families we serve.
We want you to
know that the teaching and counselling staff at William Roper Hull School miss the kids dearly. We want
you as caregivers to know that as a school we will do everything we are able to
do to support your children going forward.
returns from Spring Break, we will hit the ground running and be in touch as
soon as possible with plans, strategies and next steps.
You are sure to
have many questions, as do we all. The situation worldwide, and certainly in
our city, is changing rapidly. Please have a look at the resources attached to
this message, which will hopefully provide some ideas for speaking with your
children and managing anxiety during these uncertain times.
Our thoughts are
with all of you. Please take good care, stay safe, and continue to support one
Joe Sturgeon, Principal
Leanne Murphy, Assistant Principal
