Brownridge School Council Meeting on January 13 is Postponed to January 20 to Support YRDSB Vigil

11 Jan

Dear Brownridge Families,

This email is to inform you that the School Council Meeting originally scheduled for Monday, January 13 is being postponed. The council meeting will now be taking place on Monday, January 20 at 6:30.

The reason for the change is so Brownridge families and staff can join Canadians and others around the world in mourning the loss of the victims of the January 8th plane crash in Iran. We are heartbroken to learn that five YRDSB students died in this devastating tragedy, from four schools in the YRDSB. The YRDSB will be hosting a community vigil to bring the community together and honour the lives of those who were lost. We hope that you are able to join us in support of the community. This is an outdoor event. Please dress warmly. 

The event will be held on Monday, January 13, 2020 at 6:30 p.m. outside Dr. Bette Stephenson Centre for Learning in Richmond Hill. This event is being held in partnership with the City of Richmond Hill, York Catholic District School Board and York Regional Police. 

As a reminder, if you or someone you know is directly affected by this event, Victim Services of York Region (VSYR) is available at 905-953-5363 or toll free at 1-866-876-5423, extension 6790 to provide support. You can also reach out to 310 – COPE at 1-888-695-0070.

Thank you,

The Brownridge Team
