Dear DSBN Elementary In-Person Learning Families:

We are excited to welcome your child back to in-person learning on Monday, February 8. Please review the information below to be prepared for a few new safety practices:

  • Children in Kindergarten are encouraged to wear a mask, but they are not required to based on the Ministry of Education and Niagara Public Health recommendations.
  • Children in Grades 1-3 will now be wearing masks in class and on the bus, just like their peers in Grades 4-8. We have masks for students who don’t have one or who have lost or damaged theirs.
  • When playing outside and unable to safely distance, students will wear their masks.
  • As has been our practice since school started in September, we will not permit non-essential visitors in our school. You can continue to drop off or pick up items for your child in the school foyer.
  • You may have heard that schools may be offering COVID-19 testing.This will be implemented by Niagara Public Health and the Ministry of Education and will not be determined by the DSBN. As we receive information, we will keep you informed.

Next Steps
If your child is returning to school for in-person learning, you do not need to contact the office. We’ll see them on Monday, February 8. Even though we are back, it is important that you continue to do your child’s daily self-screening before sending them to school. Here is a link: https://covid-19.ontario.ca/school-screening/

As always, our entire school team is here to support the learning of our students. Please contact me if you have any questions at Robb.McLean@dsbn.org .
