This week, Grade 2/3 students from Coldstream Elementary shared handwritten letters to adults about COVID 19.

Dear Adults,

The pandemic will be over soon. Don’t be afraid to get a shot for the pandemic. After the shot covid can’t hurt you anymore. I know Covid has been going on for a long time but it’ll be over soon! Don’t be stressed. There is a vaccine now.

Sincerly,

Paden

Dear Adults,

You should social distance a lot and wear your mask. I know covid has Benn hard. We can handle it if we try to not get covid. Dont stress. We can get back to normle soon. I hope that will come trae soon. Keep trying.

Sincerely,

Syd

Dear Adults,

Here are some things that I hope will help you get through Covid 19. If you have a Kid or more, make sure they’re okay. They’re probably really scared, just as much as you are. Covid is really scary because you might think what will happen if you get it? but don’t worry. If you keep following safety protocols you will make it through covid. STAY SAFE.

from Meg

Dear Adults,

What has been hard for you? We all know that covid has been hard but still keep your hopes up because people are getting their shots!

Sincerely Violet

Dear: Adult

Hopefully the covid will end and every thing will be OK. Don’t worry. You will see your family again and it will be nice. I know the covid has gone on for a long time. Keep your hope up you can do this!!! Spend time with your kids a lot more. Go to the park maybe?

Sincerely, Meleah

Dear Adults

Always wash your hands. The pandemic will go away if everyone washes their hands. Don’t worry. You will see your friends and family. I know you can’t really breathe in a mask but still wear one. You can go on alot of trips again when Covid is over.

Sincerely,

Emery

Dear Adults,

I have felt it and I am pretty sure you have too, that feeling that (I’m not afraid to admit it) just makes you want to get under your bed covers and stay there forever.

And I know Covid can be scary but even if your afraid of needles, just remember the vaccine is your friend!Believe me. I know very well the meaning of fear. I myself have lots of them: spiders… the dark… but lets not get off topic. Being brave right now is tough so great job!

Even though life won’t be normal again it will be BETTER!!

You know why? Because it will have all of you being even braver, stronger and more ready to take on anything! I think I’m speaking for lots of kids when I say this: Kids think adults are like super heroes — and in a way they are — but even adults don’t have superpowers to fix everything. Lastly I’m glad we are all believing to make the world a better place!

Sincerely,

Valen

Dear Adults,

Covid can be hard. If you don’t have anyone to visit or people to visit you. You should be creative with time. Maybe do an art project or two. Go out side more. If you have a Kid do fun stuf with him or her. Wearing a mask means you don’t get the normal flu. Don’t be afraid to get the shot it will only hurt for a second. So remember to keep your distance and have fun.

Sincerely Milla

Dear adlts

some day Covid 19 will end. You should get the vaccine. You should look up what to do at home. Play baseball with your kid. Soon you can hug and high five each other. You should have faith in the doctors.

Sincerely,

Eli

Dear Adults,

Covid has been going on for a long time but dont’ worry about the vaccine. The shot barely hurts. In the meantime you could watch the hockey game with your kids and go for Bike rides with your family.

Sincerely Jack

Dear Adults,

Everyone will eventually get the vaccines! Also U.V. light can kill viruses! To help stop the spread wear a mask and social distance.

Sincerly Grady

Dear Adult

I know that Coxid has been going on for a year now but it doesn’t stop you having fun in your house! Covid has been hard for this past year but you still have to social distance and wear your mask until everyone has been vaccinated. Be safe and home and try to note get Covid.

Sincerely,

Danika

Dear Adult’s

Covid has been very hard for people but very slowly but steadily Covid is coming to an end. In the mean time, stay 2 metres apart, wash your hands and wear a mask! Use your spare time to play with your childrer, go outside, play a board game with your family. Get the vaccine and eat healthy. It is ok if you are afraid of the vaccine shot, but it will only hurt for a second. Stand up for you and your family. Don’t let Covid take you down!!!

Sincerely Nevaya

Dear adults,
