Covid-Related Updates

Last updated November 26, 2021   

(NEW) Vaccines for 5-11 year olds: Register here to get your 5-11 year old child vaccinated. Please check the BC Covid-19 Get Vaccinated website for updates. 

Holiday Travel & Vaccinations: 
When planning your holiday travel, please stay informed of federal guidelines regarding travelling with children under 12. Unvaccinated children under 12 cannot attend school for 14 days upon returning from international travel. It is our expectation that all students attend class on Tuesday, January 11, the first day of classes following Winter Break. 

Covid-Related Communications for Schools: For 2021-2022, there are different communication processes relating to Covid in schools than last year. In the event of a Covid case, Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) will contact the school only if they determine potential close contacts at school (the C19+ person was infectious while at school). If a student were to be determined a close contact, the family will be informed directly by VCH and not the school.
 
When there are Covid cases in the greater community, there may be Covid cases in schools, potentially among those not yet vaccinated. We strongly encourage all eligible students to get vaccinated. With proof of vaccination required for travel, restaurants and recreational events, this also impacts student participation in off-campus activities and trips.
