RED Message to SRCE Families - Back to School 2022

August 24, 2022

Good Afternoon Families:

I am excited to welcome you all back for the start of another school year. We look forward to a return to more normal school activities and a continued focus on student well-being and achievement. Students will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of extra-curricular activities including small-group instruction, band, clubs, sports and field trip. You can find more information about Back to School and the related Public Health guidance at https://backtoschool.ednet.ns.ca/.

In consultation with Public Health, the Province continues to encourage schools, staff and students to embrace healthy habits, including getting vaccinated, staying home if unwell, sanitizing hands and high-touch surfaces, and creating a supportive environment for those who decide to wear a mask.

Schools will continue to have hand sanitizer available and masks for those who choose to wear them. High-touch surfaces will also continue to be cleaned regularly.

I also want to reinforce our commitment to Nova Scotia’s Inclusive Education Policy. There will continue to be a focus on equity by supporting students who are historically marginalized and racialized (African Nova Scotian and Mi’kmaw students) or who come from other groups that have been traditionally under-represented and under-served. This includes but is not limited to those struggling with poverty, students with disabilities, and LGBTQ2S++ students.

If there are questions about your individual school, please contact your principal.

We look forward to welcoming you back to our schools, and we look forward to another great year of learning.

Sincerely,

Paul Landry
Regional Executive Director of Education
