Dear Burlington Central Families,

As a follow up to our previous communication and with the permission of Justin Bendo’s family, we would like to share with you the details of the visitation and funeral for Justin.  Here is the information:

Bay Gardens Funeral Home
1010 Botanical Dr, Burlington, ON L7T 1V1

: Saturday December 1,  4pm to 8pm

: Sunday December 2, 10am. Reception 11am to 2pm

In addition, a Celebration of Life book has been started at the school in honour of Justin.  Students and staff have been sharing their memories and thoughts in this book and are invited to write in this book until Wednesday December 5.  Once ready, we will present this book to Justin’s family.

The Tragic Events Response Team (TERT) provided support to students of all grades on Wednesday.  Our Social Worker and Child and Youth Counsellor will continue to provide ongoing support as needed.

As always, please call the school at 905.634.7768 if you have a concern or question and we will endeavour to help you.
