Information from the Public Schools Branch:
We recognize that this March Break has presented significant challenges for families, and as it draws to a close, we understand that parents, students and staff are thinking about school in the days ahead. Public School Branch schools and offices across the Island will be closed for the next two weeks, until April 3.
The purpose for closing schools is to try to prevent further transmission of COVID-19. The PSB is doing our part to follow Public Health experts who are urging everyone to be aggressive in their efforts to “flatten the curve”. The health and safety of our students and staff as well as all islanders is our priority. In addition to closing PSB schools and offices for the next two weeks, please note the following: *
All out-of-province PSB sanctioned school-based student travel is cancelled for March, April and May * Non-essential school-based events and activities are canceled for the remainder of March, April and May (i.e. outside groups presenting to a school’s student community) * Community Use of School Facilities are suspended until further notice (i.e. community school and adult recreation sporting clubs) * PEI School Athletic Association (PEISAA) has suspending all school sports until further notice
If you have any questions or concerns, please call 902-368-6990 and leave a message. While our offices are closed to the public, we are interested in assisting you and responding to your requests. We greatly appreciate your support and patience at this time.
