During our first month of school, you and your child have been doing your part to keep everyone who is coming to our school each day safe and healthy. Students are doing their best to practice physical distancing, maintain hand hygiene, and wear their face masks. We greatly appreciate you and your child’s efforts.
As you know, you were required to sign the DSBN Parental Agreement for Daily New Screening, to ensure your child is screened daily for symptoms of COVID-19 before they come to school.
To make this part of your morning routine easier, I’d like to share the province’s Daily COVID-19 Screening Tool with you. It’s an effective, quick questionnaire that will help you know whether your child should or should not be going to school. A key feature of this tool is that it walks you through what to do if a student does not pass the screening. This is helpful information that is there to support you with your next steps.
Click here to find the Daily COVID-19 Screening Tool. You can bookmark this page for easy access, or you can visit www.dsbn.org and find it on the home page. Using this tool is optional, but we are encouraging families to use it so we can continue working together to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Thank you for everything you’re doing to keep our school community safe and healthy.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
