"I would first like to confirm that the health and wellbeing of our students, clients, staff and all of their families are our primary concern of the RIEL Institute for Education and Learning. We do have risk mitigation and business continuity plans in place. These plans are being reviewed and adapted to the rapidly changing circumstances surrounding COVID-19. We are currently utilizing various modalities to deliver safe and effective services, support and up to date information for our students." -Wendy Lindberg
