Further to the Provincial Health Officer’s announcement on March 29, the updated Health and Safety Guidelines for K-12 schools were received from the Ministry of Education yesterday, March 30. The changes to the new guidelines focus on masks, and the requirements for all students in Grades 4-12 to wear them at all times while in a school building and on the bus. The guidelines strongly encourage mask wearing for K-3 students as well.
