Many of you have been receiving phone calls to pick up your sick child because they were sent to school when they should have stayed home.  Our District’s procedure is for all students to complete a daily health check at home prior to entering school and/or boarding a District bus. The Ministry of Education’s Daily Health Check poster has been updated to reflect new federal regulations regarding international travel. The symptoms listed remain the same. You can find the updated print version here. The updated version is being translated into multiple languages, which will be posted to the Ministry’s COVID-19 Safe Schools website here. Families can also continue to use the Ministry’s mobile app or online version here.  Please remember to advise the office if your child will be late or staying home for any reason.  Any visitor who enters the building must wear a mask, hand sanitize, and complete the sign in log at the Office.
