Ey swayel families,

We hope everyone had a restful holiday.

Yesterday the Provincial Health Officer, Minister of Safety, and Minister of Education announced that all schools would have a delayed opening after the break in order to assess the impact of the Omicron variant and to implement new safety measures.

This means that Seabird Island Community school will open for students on January 10.

School staff will be at the school on Tuesday, January 4th to prepare these safety measures and welcome back the children of essential workers.

If you are an essential services worker, please send an email to, so we can make arrangements for your child or children to be at school starting on January 4. 

We will send out additional information next week with regard to these proactive new safety measures.

Barbara White and Steve Beier
