Today, we delivered 3200 Handy Hooks to Embrun Ambulance Station who will then distribute them to nursing homes and hospitals in the region to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
I have been principal of Blyth Academy @CIHA now for 5 years and, if limited to just one word, I would describe our school as “personal”. It’s what makes us special; we foster an environment in which every student is known and becomes part of that family.
A huge thank you to alum Gabriel Vilardi who took some time out of his day and spoke to our students via video chat. Gabe is currently playing for the Los Angeles Kings in the National Hockey League.
Following direction from the Ministry, all Blyth Academy campuses will remain closed until May. We will continue to follow the direction of the Ministry of Education and campuses will reopen once it is deemed safe and appropriate to do so.
Though our doors are temporarily closed, the minds of our students will remain open. Our students will continue their academic journey through virtual classrooms.
The Ontario government has made the decision to close all publicly funded schools for two weeks following March Break due to COVID-19 concerns. The safety of our students is Blyth Academy’s number one priority. All Blyth Academy campuses will also be closed from March 14-April 5.
