ORCA Bus is back on the road in the Powell River area with new pandemic safeguards in place. The bus is delivering the same preschool activities to families across the region, with some COVID-era adjustments, stated ORCA bus coordinator Chelsea Ballantyne in a media release.
“Like many local services, the ORCA Bus paused its activities in March out of an abundance of caution,” stated Ballantyne. “In the six months since, we’ve been connecting with families on our social media channels while we work with our partners to plan a safe reopening.”
The ORCA Bus is an early years outreach vehicle dedicated to providing all children, in Powell River and qathet Regional District, with a good start in life. The ORCA Bus's mission is to ensure that all families have access to early years services.
