If your child becomes ill while at school

Any child experiencing COVID-19-like symptoms will be moved to a secluded space, such as a first-aid room or designated health room, where they will be supervised and supported by staff.  

Parents/guardians will be notified and advised to pick-up their child as soon as possible.   

Please ensure that the school has your current contact information, including emergency contact information, to ensure timely pick-up.      

Hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette 

School staff will continue to focus on the importance of frequent hand washing (hand sanitizing) and of proper respiratory etiquette, such as coughing/sneezing into your sleeve or into a tissue. Over the past several months the District has replaced faucets in all Vancouver schools to enable proper hand washing. Schools have also been provided with hand sanitizing stations for common areas, classrooms without sinks and at entry and exit locations.    

Cleaning and disinfecting schools 

Like last year, enhanced cleaning and disinfecting will take place in every school in the District. This will include ensuring that all frequently touched surfaces are cleaned and disinfected at least once every 24 hours.    


Water Fountain and Bottle Station

The water fountain and bottle station are now open.  Please bring your water bottle to school.
