COVID-19 Update #5

Maintaining a healthy, safe and caring environment for our entire community continues to be our priority.
The recent COVID-19 update from Dr. Bonnie Henry [see: Order and direction of the Provincial Health Officer (PHO) from November 19, 2020], outlined many new restrictions with regards to travel, businesses, activities, etc. Though they do not directly apply to the school environment, we wanted to share some important reminders about things we can all do to help keep the members of our community safe. As we all familiarize ourselves with what is detailed in the new restrictions, we are confident in our community members making safe decisions around their family activities.
With only three weeks remaining before Winter Break, this is a good time to remember we are all in this together and our collective efforts will see us hopefully end the term with our community healthy and safe.
The Public Health Office is also continuing to help guide our decisions around large scale events. As the year unfolds, we will assess whether we can proceed with each of our annual ceremonies and celebrations. 
Due to the ongoing restrictions around gatherings, we have unfortunately decided not to hold our annual Service of Nine Lessons and Carols this year. Instead, we will celebrate the musical talents of our choral students through video concerts that will include performances from across the school. You can read more about the adaptations being made to ensure our students can keep singing in our recent news story: Choir Shifts Focus to Keep on Singing.
Thank you to Ms. Amanda Chaval and Mr. Conlan Flynn and all the students from JK to Grade 12 for their dedication to being part of the choral program at GNS!
As always, we recognize that the COVID-19 pandemic will continue to evolve and influence all that we do and that our protocols and procedures will need to be continuously reviewed to make sure that they are kept current. We will continue to provide updates over the coming days if and when more changes come from the Public Health Officer or the Ministry of Education. Thank you to our community for being patient and kind as we continue to navigate this global pandemic. #mygnsStrongerTogether
