Dear Saanich Schools community,
We are all acutely aware of the many impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic, both in our personal lives and our professional responsibilities. The Board of Education is extremely appreciative of the efforts from our staff, students, parents/guardians and the broader community during these unprecedented times. Our schools continue to be wonderful places of learning and growth for our students, primarily because of the efforts from everyone in our schools and district. On behalf of the Board, I wish to express our sincere thanks for your efforts.
At a recent meeting of the Board of Education, trustees passed a motion with regards to the importance of ensuring that everyone within our district who is able to receive a COVID-19 vaccination does so to help ensure a safe working and learning environment:
That the Board express its support for COVID-19 vaccinations, in accordance with public health recommendations and encourage all employees and eligible students to avail themselves of the protection of the COVID-19 vaccine, for the health and well-being of all in School District 63.
Thank you, to our entire Saanich Schools community, for your ongoing efforts as we work together to provide our students with an outstanding educational experience.
