Dear Comox Valley Schools staff,
We hope you are having a great spring break. Comox Valley Schools would like to remind everyone that when we return next week on April 4, schools will be returning to more normal learning environments, as per the Provincial COVID-19 Communicable Disease Guidelines for K-12 Settings.
Masks will be optional for everyone, except in some circumstances. Students and staff are supported to continue to use masks and other layers of protection based on their own comfort and risk factors.
Until April 8, at events with visitors from outside the school, attendance is limited to 50 people or 50% operating capacity (whichever is greater). Starting April 8, when the Provincial Health Officer Order on gatherings and events is lifted, events with visitors from outside the school can return to 100% capacity.
For those who left the country for a spring break vacation, federal government rules stipulate that fully vaccinated travellers and unvaccinated children under 12 years old must wear a “well-constructed, well-fitting mask in public settings” for 14 days following entry into Canada.
Please enjoy the rest of spring break, and we look forward to a safe return to school next week.
All the best,
Comox Valley Schools
