SUMMARY: School re-opening

SUMMARY: School re-opening
  • CAN MY CHILD GO TO SCHOOL?
    • Check them daily: Check your child daily for signs of being sick.
    • Keep them home if:
      • They show signs of being sick
      • They have traveled outside BC in past 14 days
      • They had contact with someone with symptoms (cold, flu, COVID, infectious respiratory disease)
      • They’re not scheduled to go to school that week
  • HOW CAN I SUPPORT THE SCHOOL’S EFFORTS?
    • Have a dinner convo tonight: Walk through with your child the concrete details about how the rules (wash hands, keep distance, no physical contact, good hygiene) will look like in practice (e.g. no tag, no high fives, no sharing food, line up for washrooms, walk on the right side, etc)
    • Daily reminders: Remind your child before the start of a school day to practise good hand hygiene (e.g. wash hands) and respiratory etiquette (e.g. cough into elbow).
  • HOW CAN I PREPARE MY CHILD FOR GOING TO SCHOOL?
    • If possible, assemble and label their own supply kit (to minimize the sharing of materials). E.g. glue sticks, pencil crayons, rulers, tape, scissors, etc.
    • Remind them of the rules and good hygiene habits
    • Drop them off in the back of the school in their classroom’s designated spot.
    • Give yourself extra time to arrive on time. If your child is late, send them to the front entrance, then call 604-713-4965 to inform the school; a staff member will pick them up.
    • If your child can manage, say goodbye to your child(ren) from outside the boundaries of the school property.
    • Please pack lunches that: Do not need reheating; Are nut free; Children can eat independently. You cannot drop off lunches.
  • OTHER NOTES:
    • If your child(ren’s) schedule causes you hardship, contact Principal Leung to troubleshoot.
    • Parents/guardians cannot enter the school.
    • Please respect traffic regulations: No stopping or parking in front of school
    • Mental health: For some students a return to school is exciting and for others it may be anxiety provoking.
      • Pay careful attention to your child/ren’s mental health and discuss how they may be feeling
      • If you need support, please do not hesitate to reach out to your child/ren’s teacher or the principal.
    • The school number is 604-713-4965
