COVID-19 Update: Return to School 2022

The health and safety of our students and staff is a top priority. Please know that our school and school vehicles will continue to be cleaned thoroughly following the enhanced cleaning protocols already in place.

It is recommended that staff, students, and visitors continue to self-screen every day before attending school using the COVID-19 school and child care screening tool. Following public health guidance, individuals should stay home if they are feeling ill to prevent the spread of illness.

Masks are not required for students, staff, and visitors in schools, or on student transportation but may be worn by anyone who chooses to wear one. Free masks will continue to be available at school for students and staff. There are some circumstances when wearing a mask at school is required. The screening tool will indicate when these circumstances apply.

Our local public health unit continues to recommend getting vaccinated for COVID-19 as a way to lower the risk of serious illness. Additionally, they have created a useful webpage for families, check it out:
