Message From Principal David Starr About Re-opening

August 26, 2020

​Dear Parents,

I hope you have had a restful summer.

Please find below a letter from Superintendent Patricia Gartland regarding SD43's September start up plans.  The School District's overall plan was submitted and approved by the Ministry of Education on Tuesday.  At Terry Fox we have been working over the last few weeks in getting our school ready for the return of students.  You will notice many changes regarding how the school will operate, but our intentions are to ensure we are implementing the guidelines provided by the Ministry of Education and the Provincial Health Officer.

I understand, that normally, for many families return to school is an exciting time, and while this still may be true for some, for others this is a very stressful time.  I hope that over the next few weeks, I will be able to provide enough information so that you fully understand the steps we are taking to prepare for the arrival of students. On Friday August 28, 2020, I will be emailing out information, specific to our school, regarding the measures that we have taken to prepare for this school year and COVID-19. Included in this e-mail will be a very important survey which we ask that you complete as soon as possible, as we need to gain an understanding of the number of students attending, to help build our classes and our Learning Group cohorts.

Please let me know if you have any questions.  I look forward to working with your family this year!

Regards,
David Starr
