Dear Grade 8 Parents and Students,
RE: Grade 8 Graduation
Thank you for your patience as we continue to monitor the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on our community and how it might affect previously scheduled school events.
As the situation with COVID-19 continues to evolve on a daily basis, our top priority during this challenging time remains the health and safety of our students and staff.
It is therefore with much regret and after careful consideration, that we have made the difficult decision to postpone the Grade 8 graduation that was scheduled for June 22.
The postponement of this event is in line with measures currently being taken by health authorities and various levels of government to stop the spread of COVID-19.
We will plan to recognize this important milestone in the fall, and will be in contact with you when we have the details.
We recognize that this is disappointing news. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to work through this evolving situation.
Principal, Wilshire Elementary School
