Dear ASD-W Families,
The province of New Brunswick has moved to Level
1 of the Winter Plan. As a result, updates to the Healthy and Safe School Guidelines are now available online and are outlined below
for your convenience.
Under the Level 1 Winter Plan, Public Health has
updated the guidelines on what to do if you have symptoms.
Students and staff with one of the following symptoms
should isolate and get tested for Covid-19:
of sense of taste
of sense of smell
Students and staff with two or more of the following
symptoms should isolate and get tested for Covid-19:
new cough or worsening chronic cough
breathing; runny nose
onset of fatigue
markings on fingers or toes of children
students who test positive will be required to isolate for ten days before
returning to school or five days for fully vaccinated staff and students.
and staff members are also required to isolate if a household member tests
and students are considered fully vaccinated 14 days after their second
dose of vaccine.
a student or staff member tests positive for Covid-19 while they are
isolating, their isolation period will start over. The isolation period of
other household members is
not extended unless they also test positive for
vaccinated students who test positive must wait five days following
their isolation before participating in any extracurricular or intramural
Under level 1 in the Winter Plan, masking requirements have not
changed. We encourage all students to bring at least two well-fitted,
three-layer masks to school each day as per Public Health guidance.
For more information about vaccines, testing, and isolation,
please refer to these GNB websites:
I’d like to thank you, our staff, and our students for your
continued patience as we work through this changing pandemic. The move to Level
1 is a positive step towards lessening restrictions, and we are pleased to once
again have the opportunity for activities such as field trips, dances, and
David McTimoney, Superintendent
