St Brigid Weekly Update – Week of September 8, 2020
The first week of school is always exciting, as we catch up with old friends, meet new friends and meet new teachers. It is also a week when we learn new routines and expectations both in individual classrooms and in all areas of the school, including our playground. Students and staff did a great job this week learning new routines and rules in and around the school, while remaining in their cohorts throughout the day. Health and safety protocols were introduced and practiced throughout the week and will continue to be a priority as we move into week #2. Way to go!
If your child has a medical plan of care, please remember to send in all medical items (i.e. epi-pens, inhalers) to the classroom teacher, who will deliver it to be kept in the office.
Due to COVID-19, access to the school will be limited to HCDSB employees and service providers only. Access to the school by any other member of the community must be pre-approved by the school administration in accordance with the HCDSB Essential Visitor Protocol.
School bus transportation for all students will begin Monday, September 14, 2020.
A reminder that parents and guardians must perform daily screening of their child(ren) for COVID-19 symptoms BEFORE leaving for school using the COVID-19 Self-Assessment.
- Check your child’s temperature to ensure they do not have a fever (temperature greater than 37.8 C).
- Monitor for signs and symptoms (including atypical symptoms) of COVID-19.
- If any signs or symptoms, student and other household members must stay home, and school must be contacted.
Please note that if a student or staff member shows signs or symptoms of COVID-19 or has come into close contact with anyone suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19, they cannot come to school. They must self-isolate and be tested for COVID-19.
Parents are able to access the Daily Screening Checklist for HCDSB students HERE.
