Hello Eagle Community!
Thx for taking the time to read this. It will be a short one. We've had a great second week and are settling into routines.
Please help us out by reminding your child(ren) of the importance of staying in their zones when outside of the building at break time. Short of installing fences throughout the property, which we obviously can't do, we are counting on the students to help us by self monitoring this, to a certain extent.
Some parents have asked about our protocol when a student is sent home with possible covid symptoms...
When we send a student home with possible symptoms (when the possible symptoms are not related to a known or pre-existing condition - and you will know that this is a change from the initial direction we were given by Public Health which was - pre-existing conditions were not to be taken into consideration) that classroom will be evacuated and then disinfected, before the students re-enter.
Students who are sent home under these conditions must use the Ministry Testing Tool Coronavirus (COVID 19) School Screening and follow the instructions provided, (either get tested, see a doctor, self isolate for 14 days, or return to school). A reminder that ALL families should be completing this tool for every student attending in person each day before school.
We will not be providing information to parents of students in the class, as to who was or was not sent home with symptoms, or if a test was positive or negative. Any information about a positive test would be communicated by Public Health and the school only to those deemed at risk, by Public Health.
