Mental Health Resources during COVID-19 Pandemic
COVID 19 has presented unprecedented issues and concerns for our community, our country and the world. Much of the attention has been focused on how to keep ourselves physically healthy and how to “flatten the curve.” As we all have an obligation to keep ourselves healthy and to contain the spread of COVID 19, we must also keep ourselves mentally well.
We will continue to monitor this situation and work with the Ministry of Education and provincial and local public health partners. The safety of our students and staff is our foremost priority. We will continue to communicate to our school communities as new information becomes available.
