Feb. 8, 2021: Surrey Schools Community Update from Surrey Schools on Vimeo.
Superintendent Jordan Tinney has prepared the video update above to review the province's new health guidelines for schools and explain what they mean for our students, staff and parents. For many, the biggest change is about masks. Tinney walks us through the new language in the re-vamped guidelines, noting "these changes have increased the requirements for masks for all staff and students in our schools and there are significant changes for elementary children."
The guidelines also mention "middle school," which in other districts refers to Grade 6-8 students. Surrey does not have middle schools – our Grade 6 and 7s are in elementary school, so how do we proceed? Here are some guidelines for upper-elementary grades:
And lastly, please continue to conduct health checks every day prior to sending your children to school. The Daily Health Check form allows for a personal review of the signs and symptoms of COVID-19. Anyone with symptoms should stay home & follow instructions on the checklist. The form has been translated into multiple languages, which can be found HERE.
