We all play an important role in providing a safe and healthy school environment for students and staff, and safeguarding the broader communities in which we live.
Key Areas of Focus:
- Create well defined entrance protocols for students, teachers, and visitors.
- Establish routines for daily health checks.
- Update health and safety protocols for schools, as required.
- Develop scheduling options to facilitate reduced capacity at school.
Halton Region Public Health has developed a resource providing recommendations for school reopening. It includes considerations for the development of policies and procedures, adherence to infection prevention and control practices, and appropriate response planning to ensure the health and safety of school staff, students, parents/guardians and essential visitors.
This section outlines the protective strategies that will be in place in each of our schools and work sites during the 2021-2022 school year. NOTE: All staff, students and visitors must follow all COVID-19 preventative measures regardless of vaccination status.
