Happy Holidays 2020!

As we finish up the last week of school in 2020, Runnymede School Council would like to wish all families a happy and healthy holiday break!

This school year has been unlike any other we’ve ever experienced and we’d like to thank each and every one of you for all the extra time, effort and planning that it’s taken to ensure our children have experienced a positive, safe and engaging school year so far. We know that Runnymede teachers and staff appreciate all the efforts you’ve made to help keep them safe. It certainly takes a community and in true Runnymede spirit, our families have risen to the challenge!

We know this winter break will also be different than any other. We’d like to leave you with a really helpful document shared by Toronto Public Health to help families plan activities safely throughout the holidays.

Here are a few key takeaways…

– Enjoy the outdoors! Walking, hiking, and tobogganing are a go!  Check out the holiday lights or exchange gifts outdoors. If you can’t keep your distance from others (2m), wear a mask – even outdoors.

– Take a pass on indoor playdates, sleepovers and indoor meals / parties with members outside your household.  These are all high-risk activities.

Runnymede teachers, staff and fellow parents appreciate and depend on all of us doing our part to keep loved ones and our school community safe and healthy.  We are in this together!

Happy and safe Holidays to you and your families!
