Updated CMSD82 District & School COVID-19 Safety Plans – 2020-2021 School Year

 

On February 4, 2021, the Ministry of Education announced changes to the health and safety requirements in place for schools. The updates include:

  • Prevent crowding at all times; pay particular attention at the start and end of day.
  • Avoid close face-to-face contact whenever possible.
  • Assign staff to a specific cohort whenever possible.
  • Stagger recess, lunch, and class transition times whenever possible.
  • Ensure that the use of masks does not reduce or replace practicing physical distancing and other prevention measures, for both students and staff.
  • Ensure prevention measures are in place in staff-only areas, including break and meeting rooms.
  • Implement music classes according to the British Columbia Music Educators’ Association and the Coalition for Music Education in British Columbia Guidance for Music Classes.
  • Ensure physical activity is delivered in line with the guidance in this document.
  • K-12 Health Check App

The following documents were updated in conjunction with the enhanced safety measures announced on February 4 as the Province continues to strengthen health and safety plans in K-12 schools to keep students, teachers and staff safe during the pandemic.
