Mandatory Daily Health Declaration - Updates from VCH Mar 2022

Stay home if you are sick! Before coming to school, staff and students MUST perform the Mandatory Daily Health Declaration (see attachment) and if your child answers “YES” to any of the questions, this will prevent them from entering the school effective immediately.

Please visit https://bc.thrive.health for assessment tools.

If you feel sick DO NOT come to school (even very mild symptoms), stay home until you're symptom free for 24 hours - please note any cold symptoms should keep you at home. 

    Please find the latest information from Vancouver Coastal Health attached:   Daily Health Check, What to Do When Sick, What to Do if Someone in Your Household is Sick, If you Test Positive for Covid-19, Summary: What to do When Sick - flowchart. There are important changes from previous information, including who is defined as a close contact and symptom changes (Daily Health Check).

    Updated Info for Travellers outside of Canada and Mask Protocols (March 28th, 2022):Mask Protocols: Mask wearing is now a matter of personal choice and is no longer mandatory in our schools (or in any district facility). Exception:   For those who travelled outside of Canada during the spring break, please keep in mind the Canadian federal government requires: “You and any children who travelled with you must properly wear a well-constructed and well-fitting mask when in public spaces for the first 14 days after your entry. This includes schools and daycares.”
