We hope that this update finds you well.  While we heard that we may be able to reopen some programs carefully in Phase 2, we still do not have a specific time frame or requirements for what that might look like.  We continue to plan for reopening by preparing policies and procedures, however they cannot be finalized as there are no clear guidelines from the Ministry or Public Health. Staff are slowing being recalled in efforts to prepare for the eventual reopening.  We will keep you posted when we hear more information.

We have been provided with some resources that might be helpful for you and your children.

We recognize that the children might have questions about COVID-19 and how it relates to their world.  The Hospital for Sick Kids has a fabulous page of resources that might help you answer some questions!  Hospital for Sick Kids Learning Hub Page

Wellness Together Canada website has information on Mental Health and Substance Abuse Support.  If you or anyone you know is feeling more worried or stressed than usual there is a self help resource called Bounce Back. This is a self help resource for 19+ years.

Here is a list of Online Resources for Social Connection and Mental Wellness during COVID-19

If you are on Facebook, there is a page “Care Mongering GB” that has some more local information and resources that might be of assistance.

Please take good care.
