Dear St.Amant Families,
Every stage of the pandemic brings us different needs and challenges. As we approach the date that the St.Amant COVID-19 vaccine policy comes into effect, we will, unfortunately lose a small percentage of our team. This has not been easy for anyone and I feel great compassion for anyone whose personal values are not in line with the policy, but who, we know care greatly about the people we support. I want to acknowledge and thank those staff for their dedicated service and we wish them all the best.
It does leave us with a small gap in staffing, which thanks to our program’s good contingency planning, is manageable. However, we are embarking on a public recruitment campaign and we know that often we find the best employees by referral. Please send any good people our way!
Thanks to staff who continue to follow the strict public health protocols, and who chose to be vaccinated, we are still not seeing high COVID-19 numbers within staff or people we support. Thank you for continuing to be diligent when you visit and in how you follow the orders in your everyday life – it all makes a big difference.
We are looking to plan our second family town hall at the end of November, so please watch for that invitation. If there are any topics you would like to see addressed at that meeting, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you were able to take part in last year’s Virtual Halloween Party, you know that it’s going to be a frightening good time! The party is tonight so feel free to sign up, grab your costume and join in the fun.
