Dear BGC Greater Halifax Club families:
This afternoon, the Province of Nova Scotia announced that all public schools in the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM) and surrounding areas will close Tuesday, April 27. The Nova Scotia Department of Education and Early Childhood Development says more information about a return-to-school date will be released Friday, May 7.
BGC Greater Halifax will also close all of its in-Club programs across all of our sites beginning Tuesday, April 27. Our intent is to reopen our after school and youth programs once schools reopen. Club families affected by this temporary closure will receive a 2-week credit on their BGC Greater Halifax account. The credit will be applied to May 21st payment as applicable. Credits will be reflected on statements to be issued on May 1st.
We will not be hosting in-service day camps during this temporary closure. BGC Greater Halifax will close all of its in-Club programs in support of Nova Scotia Health’s effort to reduce COVID-19 transmission during this latest wave. However, we do have a limited number of virtual after school program spaces for your child/children to access online during this temporary Club closure. These one-hour, weekday sessions are free, and available on a first come, first serve basis. To learn more and to register, please visit: https://www.bgcgh.ca/our-programs/virtual-after-school-programs/
BGC Greater Halifax encourages everyone to get tested for COVID-19. To learn more about testing locations and times, please visit: https://covid-self-assessment.novascotia.ca/en
We will share more information as it becomes available. Thank you, and stay safe
