It's important to continue doing Daily Health Checks

checklist.pngAs students and staff in the Surrey School District return to class for the new school year, Daily Health Checks remain an important step in ensuring the health and safety of staff and students.

With the announcement of B.C.'s new K-12 Health & Safety Guidelines, the district would like to remind students and staff to Check Up, Back Up, Wash Up, Mask Up and Vax Up, as part of our ongoing health and safety protocols.

Students, staff, parents, caregivers and other visitors should not come to school if they feel unwell. Stay home and seek a health assessment by contacting your healthcare provider or calling 8-1-1 if you experience one or more key symptoms:

  • fever (above 38°C)
  • chills
  • cough
  • difficulty breathing
  • loss of sense of smell or taste.

 

They should also stay home if they experience other symptoms, including sore throat, loss of appetite, headache, body aches, extreme fatigue or tiredness, nausea and vomiting, or diarrhea.

* Links to Daily Health Check forms are available in multiple languages on the district's COVID-19 Health & Safety page. *

You can also download the K-12 Health Check Mobile App.

Students and staff who have travelled outside of Canada are required to follow both provincial and federal requirements for entry. This includes students who are attending school from abroad.

If you have been in close contact with a person confirmed to have COVID-19, follow the instructions provided by public health. You can call 8-1-1 anytime to get advice about how you are feeling and what to do next. If it becomes harder to breathe, you can't drink anything or you feel much worse, seek urgent medical care at an urgent care clinic or emergency department.

It is everyone's responsibility to ensure they are healthy to attend school, and to stay home to protect others if they are not. Please do your part to keep yourself, your families and your school communities safe.
