Hello Parents,

 

As you know we have put our regular youth program on hold since the tightening of regulations occurred in early November.

 

With the latest extension of these regulations and the uncertainty of how long these may last, we have decided to reopen the program in accordance with the province wide health order.

 

Below are two documents for your information. The first is the reference to the province allowing youth programs to continue and the second is our Covid-19 safety plan for the restart.

 

We look forward to seeing all the youth again but respect and understand every family who may have a different position in dealing with this situation.

 

Blessings,

Trent Sulz
