As all Canadians are aware, this past weekend the country suffered a very traumatic event. The loss of life in Humboldt, Saskatchewan was significant, and many are trying very hard to process what happened, why and are trying to support one another through the grief. Undoubtedly, we have families and students in our own community who are feeling the impacts of this tragedy. Some may have known victims, others may be deeply affected by sorrow due to being connected to the hockey community or having connections to that part of our world. As always, we are keeping an eye on our students, and our Counsellors are working with individuals who may be struggling with this event. We have also attached a resource for parents, in case you or your children are struggling to come to terms with what has happened. Hopefully it will provide some support. If you are in need of anything, or if you feel your child needs someone to talk with about this situation, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
On Thursday, April 12, people all across Canada will be wearing Jerseys to honour the memory of those impacted by this awful event. At McNair, we are encouraging all of our staff and students to wear a jersey (of any kind) to school to show your support and come together as a larger community. In times like these, we all need to rally together and support one another. We would like to see everyone at McNair wear a jersey on Thursday, April 12th, so please help your child remember to wear something and honour the memory of so many who need our support.
