COVID 19 – Support For Families

COVID-19 Support for Families

COVID–19 has impacted all of us in ways we couldn’t have expected. With our PSB schools being closed, the absence of access to school breakfast and lunch programs has put a financial strain on many families. Assistance is being provided to families dealing with food insecurity. Please contact the Support for Families lines 902-368-5155 or 902-368-6990 or supportforfamilies@edu.pe.ca with your name and contact information so we can get back to you about the supports that are available to assist you and your family at this time.

Student Services Facebook Page

Student Services launched a Facebook page today to bring information to parents and caregivers in an organized fashion. Posts will be from the professional groups within student services and are meant to be a support to families. Check it out!!

Respite Care Support

Parents and Guardians,
Are you a caregiver who has a child that is supported by an EA or YSW while attending school?  If you are you may be eligible for a few hours of respite care per week during the time that school is closed. Some schools are opening within family of schools (with some families being combined) to meet this need. If you are interested in receiving more information please email respite@edu.pe.ca or call 902-368-4997.
