December 07, 2021

​Dear Families, Amid rising case counts of COVID-19 in the Hastings Prince Edward (HPE) region, the Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board remains committed to ensuring the health and safety of our Catholic schools, and local communities. 

To this end, we ask that you please read the accompanying letter from Dr. Ethan Toumishey, Acting Medical Officer of Health, Hastings Prince Edward Public Health (HPEPH), which details new public health measures for schools in the HPE region. These measures include new screening requirements, masking while outdoors for elementary schools (if cohorts are not maintained), and masking in JK/SK classrooms and on school transportation. 

Some of these measures have already been in place in all our Catholic schools, while some articulated in this letter are new. 

We are grateful for your continued commitment and remain optimistic that through our collective efforts we can contribute to a blessed Christmas season that is safe, healthy, and enjoyable.

  • Discipleship

    We accept the call to be imitators of Christ by embracing the Beatitudes through authentic witness at the school, community, and global levels. Rooted in our commitment to transmit our Faith and Catholic tradition, we are inspired to build communities dedicated to the formation of young people who recognize their gifts and responsibilities to contribute to the transformation of the world into a more just and loving society for all.

  • Scholarship

    We believe that each student, made in the image and likeness of God and being hope for the future, can be engaged in their learning and achieve at high levels with appropriate supports. We are committed to ensuring that the potential of each student is realized through the achievement of ambitious outcomes and improving in their learning to the highest possible level.

  • Stewardship

    We embrace our responsibilities for the prudent and judicious use of the resources we have been allocated. In our context, we are committed to the development and growth of all employees, responsible and accountable practices and our call to care for all of God's creation.
