The Role of Families - 2020-2021 School Year
A smooth transition back to school can only happen with extensive cooperation between the KPDSB and the families of the students we serve.
Parents and guardians play an important role and we look to you for support and cooperation.
1. If your child is returning to school, screen them for symptoms daily, and don’t send them to school if they are sick or show symptoms, or if they have had contact with anyone diagnosed with COVID-19.The Northwestern Health Unit (NWHU) has provided a daily screening tool for families to use at home, click here to download it (the checklist does not need to be filled out and returned to the school, it is for use at home).
2. Teach them to wear masks properly, and proper respiratory etiquette when it comes to sneezing and coughing.Resources can be found on the NWHU's website.
3. Follow drop-off, pickup and visiting protocols that your school establishes to help reduce the risk of spread of infection.
4. Stay informed – check KPDSB’s website and social media channels often as information is frequently updated. Principals will be a good resource for information and you are encouraged to monitor school social media channels as well.
