FOR ACTION – Video Address from Dr. Bonnie Henry: Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry has prepared a special video address to thank teachers, educational assistants and school staff for all their work during these unprecedented times. As we continue to flatten the COVID-19 curve in B.C., it is crucial that we maintain the supports established for the children of essential service workers and make sure we continue to expand the provision of in-person support for vulnerable students, and students with disabilities and diverse abilities. Please watch Dr. Henry’s video and share it with your colleagues.
