A Letter To Teachers From QPAT President Heidi Yetman

Dear Teachers,

This has been an emotional roller coaster for all. Thankfully, we received the directive on Friday from the Ministry of Education regarding the closure of all schools and centres until March 27. We truly believe this was an excellent decision.

As you know, the COVID-19 outbreak has become a serious concern around the world, with thousands of people infected, a growing number of fatalities, entire cities shut down and millions of students out of school. In addition, last week, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a pandemic.

The Quebec Provincial Association of Teachers is doing everything it can to ensure the health and safety of students and teachers across this province. Rest assured we are keepingcommunications open on the matter with the different partners, and we will keep you informed as we move together during this uncertain time.

In the meantime, take this time to unwind, spend time with your families, stay safe and healthy.
