Safe Return to School

NEW SAFETY CHANGES! As schools prepare to reopen, there are a few key changes educators should be aware of:

  • Masking for Grades 1-12 indoors (mandatory masking extended to include students in Grades 1 – 3)
  • Masking for students outdoors during recess when physical distancing is not possible
  • Showing proof of online school assessment before entering the school. This is for staff, and  for students in secondary schools. 

You can also access our Safe Return to School Toolkit (September, 2020) for additional safety information. It includes recommendations on infection control procedures, environmental cleaning and disinfecting procedures, masking, student transportation, guidelines for third party food vendors (e.g., student nutrition programs), and helpful resources and signage to use in schools.

Supplementary Documents

In addition to the Safe Return to School Toolkit, the following supplementary documents are available to support school staff.
