Hello Husky Families,
As of midnight, on Friday, November 20,
2020, Zone 2 (Saint John and Area) has changed to the Orange Alert Level. This
will impact a group of our students living in communities within that zone.
These communities include: Big Cove (Queens
Co), Cody`s, Coles Island, Caanan Forks, Highfield, Hunters Home, Long Creek,
Picketts Cove, Salmon Creek and South Caanan.
I wanted to reach out to you today to
share some important information for students who live in Zone 2, as they will
be required to follow Orange Alert Level protocols at all times while on busses
and at school. Likewise, any students who travel into Zone 2 will be required
to follow Orange Alert Level protocols for a period of 14 days. Please note,
only the individual who travels into Zone 2 must follow the Orange Alert Level
protocols. Members of the same household, who have not travelled to Zone 2, do
not. It is recommended, however, that all household members self-monitor and
get tested if they develop symptoms of COVID-19.
Students and staff affected by the Orange Level Alert
· Required to wear a mask on the school bus at all
times, even when sitting alone or with a member of the same household.
· Required to wear a mask at all times at school,
except when sitting at a desk alone working silently (K-8), eating (1m distance), or engaged in sports
activities during physical education class. This includes when the students and
staff are outside.
· Permitted to take part in
physical education activities that are conducive to physical distancing such as
yoga, dancing and moderate walking. Shared equipment may not be used.
Interscholastic, extra-curricular and intramural sport activities will be
limited to practices and/or skills and drills within a single team.
· Not permitted to use wind instruments or sing
while at school or during extra-curricular activities.
I have posted the updated document regarding the
Orange Level Alert protocols on the website below. Should you have any
questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the office.
We look forward to seeing all our students again on
