COURAGEOUS FAITH // Pastor Leon Fontaine unpacking Joshua 1:6. Courage doesn’t mean fear isn’t pushing at you, courage is your faith-filled action in face of that fear! It’s a choice you make, not an emotion you simply feel.

October 22, 2020 RE: Code Orange, Changes for October 26th
Dear SCA Families,
You may have heard that our school, like all schools in the Winnipeg Metropolitan region, have been moved into code orange, starting on Monday, October 26th. We will put into action a plan that we had in place in the event of this occurrence. The good news is that very little will change for our school as a whole, because we have the space to accommodate all of our students in our buildings 2 metres apart. Our biggest change is that we will reconfigure the K-Gr 3 classrooms to comply with the new expected physical distancing protocol. Grades 4-12 are already spaced in a physically distant manner. We are so thankful that we can accommodate these restrictions and continue to allow all of our students to continue learning at school, 5 days a week.
We will continue to offer remote learning for those students with medical conditions or those exhibiting COVID like symptoms. While Winnipeg is at a restricted orange level, if you strongly feel for your family’s safety that your child would benefit from learning at home, please contact your child’s teacher and we will make that accommodation. Your child would be participating in class by joining their classroom through Google Meets. This would require you to have a device at home to follow along. If you choose to go this route, you must email your child’s teacher to let them know by Monday, Oct. 26th at 7:30 am at the latest. Keep in mind, in our opinion, the best education takes place in the classroom.
We love the changing seasons. Leaves start out as a bud and grow into a beautiful green leaf. As winter nears, they change colour and fall to the ground. Leaves remind us that change is part of life. While going through these changing times, we are so thankful for God’s peace in every situation. We are thankful we can share God’s Word and HOPE with our students each day. We encourage you to continue to speak life, health, hope, faith and love, in Jesus name, over your home each day.
