A couple of Reminders Saints:

The provincial government has been offering various financial support opportunities to families during COVID times over the past year. The latest is called the Ontario Covid-19 Child Benefit. The deadline for application is Monday, May 17th. Please follow this link: https://www.ontario.ca/page/get-ontario-covid-19-child-benefit

The Province of Ontario announced that as of the week of May 31, youth in Ontario between 12 and 17 years of age and their family members who have not received a vaccine, will be eligible to book an appointment to receive their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine, including at special dedicated youth and family clinics throughout the weeks of June 14 and 21, 2021.

The province will work with Region of Waterloo Public Health and our school board to offer second doses of the vaccine by the end of August. Click here to read the Provincial Announcement: https://news.ontario.ca/en/release/1000124/ontario-extending-stay-at-home-order-until-june-2

Get Vaccinated if you are Eligible!

The Waterloo Catholic District School Board (WCDSB) encourages all who are eligible to pre-register to receive their vaccine from Region of Waterloo Public Health. Link here: https://www.regionofwaterloo.ca/en/health-and-wellness/covid-19-vaccination-pre-registration.aspx

When possible – and to best support your child(ren) with their learning – please be mindful of school hours. However, if you are only able to book an appointment during the school day, please do so. This is an important opportunity to prioritize the health of all in our community.

We are asking anyone who is eligible, including education workers, to make sure they are pre-registered on the Region of Waterloo Public Health Website: Link here: https://www.regionofwaterloo.ca/en/health-and-wellness/covid-19-vaccination-pre-registration.aspx

Details to Follow

The WCDSB will be working in coordination with Region of Waterloo Public Health and other local partners to develop a plan, and will share more information as it becomes available.

Stay Safe, Saints!
