B.C. announces its Pandemic Coordination Plan in response to COVID-19. Please see the statement from Premier John Horgan, Health Minister Adrian Dix and Provincial Medical Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry. The Pandemic Coordination Plan is publicly available and can be found here.
At Stratford Hall, we have implemented a variety of measures in response to COVID-19:
We have instructed all students about proper handwashing and cough hygiene.
We have continued increased cleaning measures on frequently touched surfaces and have installed antibacterial hand sanitizers in all three buildings.
We are sanitizing all shared devices regularly.
We have scheduled a deep clean during Spring Break in all three buildings.
We have developed plans to continue our teaching and learning programme in the event of a school closure.
Parents and staff who are travelling over Spring Break are to consider issues such as needing to be quarantined on returning to Canada. The School will be enforcing any B.C. or Canadian government-mandated quarantines and expects the full cooperation of our community in this regard.
We will continue to monitor and communicate directions and updates from the Ministries of Health and Education.
