RE: Move to Scenario 2 after Easter break for senior high students
The Newfoundland and Labrador Teachers' Association became aware of today's announcement from the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador very shortly before it went out.
Other than what is contained in the press release (linked HERE), we do not have any details on the referenced updates to Public Health guidance for schools.
This message to members is being sent now because the President and senior NLTA staff are engaged in the Association’s Biennial Genera Meeting (BGM) business sessions today and tomorrow. We will, after BGM meetings break this evening, be reviewing all information from today’s announcements, briefings, etc. and will determine the Association’s response and further advocacy efforts from there. The safety of students and NLTA members is and will remain our priority and focus.
We will update the membership as soon as we are able.
