Dear Neighbours,
 
I hope this message finds you well.
 
It has been a busy time at the school and in our continued commitment to provide information to our neighbours, I write today to let you know that we are introducing a new Neighbours Updates page (https://www.mygns.ca/explore-gns/neighbours-updates) on our school website as a resource for the community with an aim to ensure our communication of news and key initiatives happens in a more timely and efficient manner. This page will launch November 6, and includes a dedicated email address (neighbours@mygns.ca) to enable us to respond directly to those in our community who have questions or concerns. As we all find ourselves continuing to navigate through the ongoing COVID-19 health pandemic, our hope is that this dedicated online resource will better serve the community to share and receive information and operations regarding the school over the short and long term./div>
 
With transmissions of COVID-19 on the rise—including in school environments—we are grateful to let neighbours know that we have received approval from the City of Victoria last week to temporarily install additional modular classrooms and a tent gym at Pemberton Woods for our Middle and Senior School students. As described in my previous correspondence to neighbours, these structures will enhance our ability to safely deliver classroom instruction during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our hope is to proceed with site work for the installation of these structures over the coming two months. Regular updates on the status of site work will be posted on our Neighbours Updates page and we encourage you to check-in if you wish to find out more.
 
To those of you who participated in the City’s approval process—thank you. As mentioned through my previous letters, our board and all members of the school are committed to listening, engaging and improving our connections with all neighbours. While this is a work in progress, we look forward to many more conversations with each one of you. Together we are confident of continuing to make our community more resilient and inclusive for everyone.
 
Thank you and sincerely,
Chad Holtum
