Dear Parents,

Hello Bert Edwards Families! This week, on Thursday April 12th, we will be taking part in Jersey Day here at BEST. As you are likely aware, schools, businesses, and community organizations across Canada will be participating in this initiative to show support for the people effected by this terrible event in Saskatchewan – all the families - and the entire community of Humboldt SK. It is our intention to deal with specific discussions around this event on a case by case and class by class basis – teachers will be answering questions as best they can if and when they arise, and individual students will have access to staff support if and when it is needed. The purpose of the day at our school is demonstrate our support for people in need – like good neighbours would – and hopefully play a small role in the healing process for everyone affected. It is certainly not our intention to create uncertainty and anxiety amongst our student population; we fully understand we are here day to day interacting with young children, and at all times will consider their emotional well being above all. If you have any questions or concerns about Thursday, please feel free to contact us at the school. Have a great night everyone.
