Important announcements and resources for everyone.

The COVID-19 situation is evolving. Today we were notified that one of our staff has been potentially exposed to the COVID-19 virus. The employee last worked on Thursday August 27th 2020.

At this time, the employee is at home in isolation until further notice with the rest of the family. So far they are experiencing no symptoms of illness.

We are taking all necessary precautions. We have closed our in-person outdoor programs until September 11th and are undertaking a deep clean of children’s toys as recommended by the Public Health Agency of Canada.

As a precautionary measure we encourage all families who attended our Thursday Drop in program to monitor themselves for symptoms and seek advice from the local health authority or 811 COVID-19 information line should you have any immediate questions or concerns.

We encourage everyone to take precautions by washing your hands frequently and by practicing physical distancing while out in public.

 

Thank you for your attention to this important notice.

 

 

Kind regards,

The Mount Pleasant Family Centre Society Staff and Board

IMPORTANT NOTICE - Monday, August 31, 2020

The Mount Pleasant Family Centre Society stands against racism. We stand in solidarity with people who have suffered from racial injustice. Black lives matter. Indigenous lives matter. We are angered and saddened by the ongoing experience of Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Colour within our community, and globally. We have spent the last few weeks reflecting on the persistence of systemic racism in our communities and we condemn the rise of anti-Asian racism that has occurred in light of the recent global pandemic.


We have the honour of working with families with young children from diverse backgrounds, and this is a huge opportunity for us to work forward towards change. We must recognize our role within these systems, our privilege, and our responsibility to educate ourselves and to take actions to make the world a better place for all children.
Some of our next steps include taking a critical look at our programs to identify how to make them more inclusive. We will also be collecting and sharing resources about race-based discrimination and inviting more members of the community to join us. As we begin this work we are open to feedback and accountability. We are always listening and learning.

Sending love and peace,


MPFCS Staff and Board of Directors
