With respiratory illness season underway, please remain vigilant in following Provincial Communicable Disease Guidelines for K-12 Settings in BC, including:
- to practice health awareness, regularly checking for symptoms of respiratory illness, and to stay home when sick.
- schools are supportive environments for mask wearing, and a person's choice should be supported and respected. Evidence-based, trusted information on masks is available from the BC Centre for Disease Control.
Health and Safety in School District 43 strictly adheres to the standards and guidance provided by the Provincial Health Officer, Ministries of Health and Education, the BC Centre for Disease Control, the Fraser Health Authority and WorkSafe BC. Fraser Health prepared a Healthy Back to School Guide that contains valuable information for families.
Keeping our learning environments healthy and safe is a shared responsibility, and we remain grateful to everyone in our school communities for doing their part.
