A couple of important reminders for students who will be returning to school in person.
- Students in grades 1 to 12 must wear a mask at school
As recommended by Peel Public Health, all students in grades 1 to 12 must wear a mask or face covering while indoors at school, including in classrooms and hallways. Students in kindergarten are strongly encouraged to wear a mask or face covering.
Please send your child to school wearing a mask that covers their nose, mouth and chin. Any student who arrives without a mask will be given one. If your child is unable to wear a mask, please connect with your principal directly by calling or emailing the school. You can find contact information on your school website.
- Screen your child EACH DAY for COVID-19 symptoms
To help prevent COVID-19 from entering schools, parents MUST screen their child(ren) for symptoms every day before they come to school. You can use the Ministry of Health’s Ontario COVID-19 self-assessment tool to do this. If your child has any symptoms of COVID-19 or if they are ill, they should not go to school.
In addition to enhanced health and safety measures at the school, these practices are in place to help keep our schools safe and prevent the spread of COVID-19. For more information about the Peel board’s Reopening Plans, including school start dates, please visit www.peelschools.org/reopening.
