很多家长已经和寄宿部的负责人Mrs. Kathy Watt沟通，告知学生在三月假期的计划安排。我们知道多数学生计划留在加拿大，但也有一些学生打算回国。鉴于以上提到的避免前往中国的指导原则，如果您的子女打算回国，请重新考虑他们的假期安排。如果您尚未通知学校、或想更改您原来的计划，请您务必于2020年2月21日(周五)之前发送电子邮件至邮箱：email@example.com
Dear Parents of SJK Boarding Students,
As a school community, SJK believes in placing the safety of our students first and that it is important to act responsibly, listen to health officials and follow their expert direction. We continue to carefully monitor the status of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) through trusted health authorities.
We want to reassure you that SJK does not have any cases of Covid-19 on campus or at the boarding residence. Furthermore, our Health Centre at the boarding residence has not observed any symptoms of the illness. We continue to use precautionary measures to lessen our school’s chances of exposure to any airborne, acute respiratory illness.
As of February 11, 2020, the World Health Organization advises that measures to limit the risk of exportation or importation of the disease should be implemented. The government of Canada’s travel advisory to China recommends avoiding non-essential travel and to Hubei Province recommends avoiding all travel. https://travel.gc.ca/travelling/advisories
Our local health authorities are requiring anyone who has visited Hubei province to be self-quarantined for 14 days.
With the guidance of health officials in mind, we recommend that our boarding students not travel to China during the March Break holiday (March 14 - March 29, 2020).
Many parents have already communicated with the Head of Boarding, Mrs. Kathy Watt, informing her of your son’s or daughter’s plans for the holidays. We know that many students are planning to stay in Canada but others also have plans to return home to China. With the guidance of avoiding travel to China, could parents please reconsider your son’s or daughter’s plans for the holiday if they planned to return home to China? If you have not yet delivered this information or would like to change your original message, we ask that you please confirm with an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
your child’s plans for the holidays by Friday, February 21, 2020.
We would prefer if families make plans for their children to leave the residence over the break. If this is too difficult for your family, please contact Mrs. Watt to let her know that you are having difficulty making alternate arrangements.
Our hearts go out to those in China, particularly the Hubei Province and the city of Wuhan. Our sincerest thoughts are also extended to anyone suffering as a result of this virus, and to the loved ones of those whose lives have been lost.
Head of School
