Letter to Families from BGCDSB

If this date changes we will communicate directly with you. We know and appreciate how these constant changes in messaging are a challenge for everyone. We have been here before and we know how to move quickly and responsively to support our communities and support you in this move to virtual learning. Your health and wellness is our priority. BGCDSB Mental Health webpage offers some important information for our families on Mental Health resources. Check out the site here.
Our students in Gr. 4-12 should have their device home with them as instructed prior to the Christmas break. If not, schools will make arrangements for pick up. Our IT team is currently preparing the K-3 devices for deployment. They will work with our Catholic school Principals to communicate with you to make arrangements for pickup.
Also, if you have not already done so please consider getting your family their 1st, 2nd or Booster vaccination. There are multiple localized clinics and the Hockey Hub Mass Immunization clinics will be operational in Chesley, Port Elgin and Owen Sound. There are many spots available, please sign up as soon as you can to ensure you book the first available appointment at https://covid-19.ontario.ca/book-vaccine/ or call the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre at 1-833-943-3900.
As we navigate through this new surge in Covid 19 Omicron variant, please stay safe and follow our Covid 19 protocols. When we hear more information from the Ministry of Education we will communicate with you. Thank you for your continued support and commitment to Catholic Education.
Be Safe and Be Well,
God Bless,
Gary O’Donnell
Director of Education

Chair of the Board
