Hello SD48 Families,
Earlier today, Education Minister Jennifer Whiteside and Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry announced:
- Masks are now required for all students, including students from Kindergarten to Grade 3.
The rollout will begin on Monday, October 4, and all students in B.C. schools will be required to wear a mask when inside a school building, including while at their desks and on buses.
For more information, please see the updates made to the Public Health Communicable Disease Guidance for K-12 Schools and the Provincial COVID-19 Communicable Disease Guidelines for K-12 Settings.
