Important Message Regarding Zone 2 - Orange Level Alert

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 protocols are:

·       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 Monday!

Important Update! Zone 2 - Orange Phase

Orange Phase Requirements

 

The following details the changes in directives that will take place in a school when a region of the province has been placed in an Orange Alert Level. This document supplements the Return to school: Direction for school districts and schools as well as the COVID-19 Guidance for Early Learning and Childcare Facilities.

 

Travel Between Orange and Yellow Zones

 

Everyone travelling between Orange and Yellow alert zones must self-monitor and wear a mask for 14 days and must follow directives in accordance with the Mandatory Order as if they were in the Orange Phase. This applies to travelling professionals, supply teachers, school personnel and students, and employees of early learning and childcare facilities and children attending early learning and childcare facilities. This only applies to the individual who has travelled and does not apply to other members of the same household. It is recommended that members of the household self-monitor and get tested if they develop symptoms of COVID-19.

 

Orange Phase: Public Schools Mask Use

 

• Students in Grades K-12 are required to wear a mask on a school bus, even when sitting alone or with a member of the same household.

 

• Students in Grades K-8 are required to wear a mask at all times at school, except when students are sitting at a desk working silently, eating, or engaged in sports activities during physical education class. This includes when the students are outside.

 

• Students in Grades 9-12 are required to wear a mask at all times at school, except when students are eating, engaged in sports activities or during physical education class. This includes when the students are outside.

 

• School personnel are required to wear a mask at all times at school, except when they are eating or sitting alone in their closed office or classroom. This includes when school personnel are outside.

Music Education and Activities

 

The use of wind instruments and singing are not permitted in an Orange Alert Level. Extra-curricular music activities, such as SISTEMA, theatre, choir and band, are not permitted.

 

Physical Education and Sports Activities
