Dear HRM Parents and Guardians,
Congratulations to Colton S., one of the recipients of the SEA Ignite Grant Awards. Thank you Mr. Bailie for all of your help.
Please keep our Grade2 students in your prayers as they receive the Sacrament of First Communion on Sunday April 18.
Daily Self-Assessment of COVID-19 Symptoms: The Screening Tool has been changed as it now requires all students and staff with any new or worsening symptoms of COVID-19 (EVEN THOSE WITH ONLY ONE SYMPTOM) to STAY HOME.
Staff and students can ONLY return to school when
- They receive a negative COVID-19 test result.; OR
- They receive an alternative diagnosis by a health care professional.; OR
- It has been 10 days since their symptom onset, and they are feeling better.
The Ministry of Health has now indicated that all individuals living in the same household are now required to self-isolate when a family member has COVID-19 symptoms, even if the family member only has one (1) symptom. The following isolation requirements now apply:
All members in a household of a symptomatic individual are required to self-isolate until the individual:
- Receives a negative COVID-19 test result; OR
- Receives an alternative diagnosis by a health care professional.
If someone in your household tests positive, or is not tested and does not receive an alternative diagnosis from a health care professionall:
- This individual must isolate (including from others in your household) for 10 days from the date of experiencing symptoms. AND
All members of the same household must isolate for 14 days from their last date of exposure with the symptomatic family/household member.
Confirmation of Daily Self-Assessment of COVID Symptoms: On Monday April19, families are asked to confirm that their child has completed and passed the Daily Self-Assessment of COVID Symptoms. This is a ONE day confirmation only for Monday April 19. Each class will be emailed a link to a Microsoft Form to indicate both that the child has completed and passes the daily assessment. This is to be done for each child prior to them arriving at school. More information is to follow.

Promoting Well-Being: Getting Children & Teens Outside While Physical Distancing for COVID-19
Take advantage of the healing power of play in nature—in your own backyard or on a walk. Be sure to follow local public health guidelines about wearing masks and keep at least 6 feet from others not in your family. Wash hands with soap and water or use hand sanitizer during and after your adventure. Getting outdoors, being in nature, and moving our bodies is good for everyone!
