School looks very
different for families this year -- staying in cohorts, wearing masks and
physical distancing have become standard for students navigating the hallways
and classrooms. But those are just a few steps the district has taken to
mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in schools.
The district’s health
and safety protocols also extend to parents and guardians, including how
students are dropped off and picked up, and who can enter the school.
“A lot went into the
new health and safety training for staff in preparation for this school year,”
said Mary Campbell, Manager of Health & Safety with the district. “Daily health checks , staying in cohorts,
physical distancing, cough etiquette and diligent hand hygiene have become new
standards for everyone at school.
“It is important
that all of us follow these protocols to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and
protect our larger community from this virus.”
The district also reminds parents and guardians to continue taking safety measures when on school property, including
practicing physical distancing from other parents, students and staff when
dropping off and picking up their children. Anyone on school property should
maintain a distance of two metres from others where possible. If distancing is
not possible, parents are encouraged to wear masks.
As a precaution, no
visitors are permitted in schools without prior arrangement by the principal.
Parents who have arranged to visit their child’s school should not enter
classrooms and must follow the directions posted on the school entrance, such
as phoning to make an online appointment to speak to their child’s teacher,
calling the office or dropping off forgotten school items at the exterior door.
“We want to limit
the number of people entering our schools to lessen the chance of exposure to
our students and staff,” said Campbell. “This year has been an adjustment for
everyone, but it’s something we must do to ensure the health and wellbeing of
everyone at our schools.”
Parents should also
assess themselves for symptoms and avoid coming to school property if they have
one or more symptoms of COVID-19 , have returned from
international travel in the last 14 days, or have been in contact with someone
confirmed to have COVID-19.
Students and staff
should also stay home when new symptoms of illness develop. The district will
support any students who need to stay home due to illness.
The health and
safety of our students and staff is everyone’s responsibility, and the district
thanks all students, staff and parents for their efforts.
