Potential School ClosureDear Parents:Conjecture, suppositions, speculations and fear seem to be rampant in the media as the Spring Break approaches.We are currently being told that on Friday, the Government of Ontario will be updating us on their mandates for the schools as to the timing of the Spring Break, potential online learning and in class sessions.Please do not let this uncertainty overshadow the glorious truth of the Easter celebration. At PCS we will flex and fit into whatever comes with the outstanding effort of the teachers, students and parents. We will make it work and maintain the attitude of confidence that God will allow us to be successful in all these activities for His glory.Please listen to the song Evidence by Josh BaldwinWe have so much to be thankful for and this time should be one of joy.Once we have heard the decision, we will formulate our response and inform you as to how we will pivot to meet the new directions. In an effort to plan ahead however, we have asked the teachers to put together a two-day package of work that we would ask you to save until needed, for Monday, April 19th and Tuesday, April 20th. This work will provide a gap measure in case the government determines that we should be online the week following our planned break. This will allow the teachers two days to put together a larger package for pick-up, along with Chromebooks or tablets on Tuesday, April 20th at 3:00 to 5:00 PM, to once again move to our online program which would start first thing Wednesday morning, April 21st.Be blessed beyond all measure.Dr. Ogborne

"But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him. See, I have told you."

In this topsy-turvy year, once more we are hit with a new scenario. The announcement has been made by the Ministry of Education to move the March Break into April. They have issued a statement to private schools requesting that we do likewise.
It is the practice of PCS to follow the Ministry’s request on school related items, as long as they do not cross the Biblical or moral standards that we hold dear. Therefore we will follow their lead and move our March Break into April.
For this year, our “Spring Break” will begin Tuesday April 6, 2021 and extend to Friday April 16, 2021. By placing our regular two weeks in such a manner, it allows the students to enjoy a consistent break without going in and out twice over the Easter and Spring Break timeframe.
The students and staff have worked diligently since January, both online and in person. By the time April comes along they will appreciate this time to relax, recharge and then rejoin the PCS community for the final push to the end of the year.
Thank you for your continued support and encouragement as we pray and work through this together.
