COVID-19 Updates

Check back here, as well as our Facebook page for regular COVID-19 updates.

For parents and guardians, a new government website has been launched with up-to-date non-clinical information on COVID-19. British Columbians can also use the new provincial phone service by calling 1-888-COVID19, available seven days a week from 7:30AM to 8PM, with information in over 110 languages.

March 30 School Update:

After a time of staff devotions (via Google Meet online video) this morning, our staff have begun reaching out to all families.  We are pleased to be reconnecting with you all! It feels like it’s been a long time since we’ve been together.  If you have not heard from a staff member by Tuesday afternoon, please give us a call, text, or email to let us know. Perhaps we do not have the correct contact information for your family.
It’s normal to feel a certain level of stress and worry during these times.  Attached, I have included a document with some important wellness ideas and Youtube links for parents.  These supports come from the Canadian Mental Health Association. Please check it out when you have a few moments to read and reflect.
Lastly, think about how God has been good and faithful in the life of your family over the past couple of weeks.  God remains in control and although His plans may be hidden from us, He gives hope to us all.  What reasons do you have to be thankful? Perhaps write them down or share them with the members of your family.
I continue to pray for you all.
God is good, all the time.
Jeremy Tinsley
Principal

March 24 School Update:

Limited In-School Services Beginning March 30

DCS has received additional information from the Ministry of Education regarding in-school services for families. Dr. Bonnie Henry, Provincial Health Officer, has indicated that if parents work in “critical roles”, such as health services and grocery stores, schools are asked to provide in-school services for your family. To help us plan, please email (office@duncanchristian.com) or call the school (250-746-3654) to inform us if you need your children to be in school so that we can plan accordingly and ensure the safety of staff and students. Safety measures will include physical distancing, limiting the number of people the classrooms and school, and enhanced cleaning. DCS will provide in-school services for qualifying families beginning Monday, March 30, 2020. We will be as flexible as we can with your work schedules. We are also looking at transportation options to assist families.
