COVID-19 Updates

To safeguard the health and well-being of our community, St. George’s School has developed a COVID-19 Safety Plan based on guidance issued by the Provincial Health Officer, BC Centre for Disease Control, WorkSafeBC, and the Ministry of Education.  Our commitment is to safeguard students, employees, contractors, visitors, and school facilities by implementing measures to control exposure and prevent infection using a variety of methods including masks, increased cleaning, physical distancing, and enhanced air filtration in common spaces. Our plan is updated whenever the situation warrants or new directives are issued by provincial officials.  

Safety begins at home, and, as Dr. Bonnie Henry has declared, each of us has the responsibility to do our part in helping to limit the spread of COVID-19 in our broader community. To preserve the health of our community, it is important that we continue to adhere to all of the directives set out by our various levels of government.  This currently includes “avoiding social gatherings of any size inside your residence with anyone other than your core household”, “limiting other social gatherings to outdoor spaces and to no more 10 people”  and limiting “all in-person events and community-based gatherings,” along with all non-essential travel. 

When in any of our school buildings, we ask:  
  • Anyone entering completes a daily health check for any COVID-19 related symptoms and does not enter any school building if you have any symptoms;
  • Students, employees, and visitors to sanitize hands prior to, and after entering, the building;
  • Everyone in indoor spaces should wear masks according to the guidelines issued by the BCCDC and the Ministry of Education;
  • Adults and students (when outside of their learning group) maintain 2M physical distance from others; and,
  • All the directives of provincial and federal authorities are adhered to, including the requirement to quarantine upon returning to Canada.
  • Anyone entering school buildings should sign in at one of the Reception desks.  Senior School students and staff will sign in by using school-issued ID cards whereas at the Junior School student attendance will be facilitated through the regular attendance process.
  • With your support, we will continue to safeguard the health and well-being of the students, staff, and families of St. George’s School.
  • Thank you for all that you have done, are doing, and continue to do. The end is in sight, keep up the good work!
