Pre-Screening your Children – Every morning we ask that you check-in with your child to see how they are feeling. We have provided you with a pre-screening checklist that will help to decide if your child should come to school. If your child is feeling unwell and is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, we ask that they stay home and suggest you call 811 or your healthcare provider for information. The pre-screening checklists can also be found on the PSB website and PSB social media.
At School – If you child feels unwell while at school, a staff person will call you and ask you to come pick up your child. If the child is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, the school will suggest you call 811 or your healthcare provider. If your child is advised to get tested for COVID-19, your child must remain home until a negative result is found. Others in the household do not need to self-isolate at this time. If your child is not tested for COVID-19, they should still remain home until symptoms improve and they are feeling well. We appreciate your support with these unexpected circumstances.
COVID-19 Positive Case in Schools – Schools and the PSB have developed a protocol in the event of a student or staff person testing positive for COVID-19. This would include timely communication with those impacted, working collaboratively with CPHO to determine contact tracing and case-by-case decision making on if classes, cohorts or schools would need to remain home.
Contact Information – Please ensure your contact information is up-to-date at school. It is important that the school can contact you in an emergency situation
