SCHOOL DISTRICT 46 – SUNSHINE COAST | Health & Safety Guide 2021
As we approach the beginning of the school year we want to provide you with information that we all need for a smooth and positive start to the 2021/2022 school year.
1 | COMPLETE A DAILY HEALTH CHECK
All students, staff, and visitors must complete a daily health check. Parents and caregivers are responsible for assessing their children daily before sending them to school. The K to 12 Health Check website and app is an easy way to decide if your child should attend school based on their symptoms.
2 | STAY HOME WHEN SICK
If you feel unwell, stay at home. You can use the K-12health-checker website or app or the COVID-19assessment tool to determine if you should seek testing.
3 | WEAR MASKS
All K to 12 staff, students in grades 4 to 12, and visitors are required to wear masks in all indoor areas, including at their desks and on school buses. Students in Kindergarten to Grade 3 are encouraged to wear a mask indoors in schools and on school buses, but are not required to do so.
4 | PRACTICE HAND HYGIENE &RESPIRATORY ETIQUETTE
Students, staff, & visitors must practice good hand hygiene (thorough hand washing often) and respiratory hygiene (cover your coughs). Wash hands or sanitize often when switching activities or spaces.
5 | STAY POSITIVE
We learn so much from each other. Be mindful of your mindset! If our students and children hear us speaking optimistically about the school year – they will adopt that attitude. Let’s work together to be flexible, patient and kind.
