Update for Families - January 22

Good afternoon Raiders! This is Ms. McGrath with a quick update for all Raiders and their families.

As you know, the provincial Dept. of Public Health moved our Zone (Saint John & area) into the “RED” zone of Covid recovery late on Tuesday evening.

Further, after a change of plans on Sunday, January 17, the Dept. of Education & Early Childhood determined that schools would remain open in the “RED” phase with enhanced screening protocols in place.

Although guidelines and protocols changed throughout the week, Raiders continued to show true “grit” as we worked through the updates and changes.  We all worked together to keep each other safe at school by wearing our masks, using hand sanitizer and social distancing as much as possible when outside of our classroom “bubble”.

See our updated protocols in the attached file.   Red Phase Update - January 22.docxRed Phase Update - January 22.docx

In light of all of the changes this week, we have postponed our Lockdown practice to next Thursday, January 28th.

All of our messages to families are also posted on our website at

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at the school at or, on my direct line, at 738-6511. General inquiries to the mainline at 738-6500.

Thank you. Stay safe!​
