St. Patrick’s School
Lord, You sent Your Son to lead us into the peace of Your Kingdom. Look with kindness on all who have served the cause of peace in our armed forces. Send Your comfort and healing to their families, and to all who suffer due to war and conflict. May Your Son’s gospel message of peace burn ever more brightly in our hearts, our words and our actions, and lead all to fullness of life in You. We make this prayer to you through this same Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen

Happy November! This week we have been talking about Saints and praying for our loved ones who we have lost. Celebrating All Saints Day and All Souls Day remind us that God calls us all to be saints and that we are helping these little ones (and big ones!) to be saints in the making.
We thank you for all your support this week as we dealt with COVID-19 exposure notices in certain classes. Fraser Health lets us know which classes/individuals are to receive exposure notices, so we cannot send it out to the whole community. Some of you had questions regarding the timing between exposures and notices being sent home, we send out the letters to you as soon as we receive them. Unfortunately, the timeline is set by Fraser Health.
Just as a reminder and for your assurance, the school already has many measures in place to reduce the risk of the spread of Covid. Students are washing and/or sanitizing their hands frequently, wearing masks, avoiding crowded hallways, and maintaining distance when possible. Our classroom HVAC systems are operating optimally. Cleaning practices are being followed and rooms are being sanitized with a fogger.
There have been some questions regarding masks so I have attached an informational poster from BC Center of Disease Control below. Please send in extra masks with your child so they can change their masks throughout the day.
Again, I thank you for helping us keep the community healthy and for your continued prayers.
Yours In Christ,
