I hope you are all enjoying a lovely weekend and staying safe and well. You will notice below that many of these updates are repeated from last weeks email, rather than being onerous, hopefully this is helpful in supporting families knowing what is going on in our learning community. That being said, I did want to take a moment to acknowledge my email at the end of last week related to our first COVID-19 case at Dr. Egbert. Thank you all for your generosity in this regard. As you are aware, it can be a stressful time for staff, students and their families. Our COVID deep cleaning team was in the building late and did a wonderful job to support cleaning protocols. As CBE adjusts their policies in light of the stress on AHS to care for the number of cases in the province, our communication will be more timely. Please continue to join with us in reminding young folks of the importance of wearing their masks and sanitizing their hands regularly.

Akeem Haynes (Egbert alumni and Olympian) – Friday November 27th As well as being an Olympian, Akeem is a sought after inspirational speaker. He is very much looking forward to the opportunity to share his story with our students. This will be a school community event. Each Homeroom will connect virtually. Akeem's story and conversation will further support our students in learning to care for each other and believe in what could be possible for their lives.
As always, thank you for your support.
Take good care,
