Dear ASD-S Families,
Update: Mask use in schools
This evening we are sharing a letter from Deputy Minister of Education and Early Childhood Development George Daley and Dr. Cristin Muecke, Medical Officer of Health, about masking inside of all New Brunswick schools beginning tomorrow.
While there has not been a COVID-19 case in ASD-S yet this school year, positive cases have been confirmed in schools in zones 1 (Moncton region), 3 (Fredericton region) and 5 (Campbellton region). In light of these cases, the province, in consultation with Public Health, has added this extra safety measure across all of the province’s school districts. The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development will continue to work with Public Health to adapt guidelines based on new information and we will keep you informed of any new changes.
Our schools are working very hard to keep our schools healthy, safe, and as close to normal as possible for staff and students, particularly those under 12 or those who cannot be immunized. Thank you for your understanding as we work together to follow the safety guidelines provided to us by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development and Public Health.
If you did not receive this notice via School Messenger email, please ensure your contact information is up to date at your child’s school.
