Local Public Health: Help Stop the Spread

THURSDAY, NOV. 10, 2022

We are entering what is typically respiratory illness season, and our local public health units – Brant County Health Unit and Haldimand-Norfolk Health Unit – are advising we are seeing increases in infection indicators across the Grand Erie region, including those for COVID-19 and flu. 

They have shared a letter with more information around respiratory illness season, and measures to help prevent the spread of these illnesses in our schools. They include:

  • Wash your hands often
  • Cover your cough
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands 
  • Stay home when you’re sick – do not attend school or childcare, even with mild symptoms.  
  • Wear a mask to protect against exposure to airborne and respiratory viruses 
  • Make a plan in the event you or your child/children have to stay home from work, school or daycare
  • Stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccinations

You can find more information here, including information around booking COVID-19 vaccinations or the seasonal flu shot.

Grand Erie Special Education Games

On May the 20th our DD Class participated in Grand Erie’s first Special Education Games. The students got to take part in a variety of fun activities. Each activity had predetermined standards and the students were awarded ribbons for each event they took part in. Our students earned a variety of 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and participant ribbons.

Our class took home 1st place in the “Create your Mascot Contest”, earning us a class pizza party! Class participants included; Kayden, Lilly, Jonathan, Spencer, Karlan, Jacob, Justyse, Hayley, Alyssa, and Stantone. We all really enjoyed the day.

Please meet our 1st place Mascot – Captain Cedarland Cyclone
