Today, Minister of Education Jennifer Whiteside announced that B.C. has expanded its mask-wearing policy.

Under the updated health and safety guidelines, non-medical masks are required for all staff in all K to 12 schools and all students in Grades 6 to 12 in all indoor areas, including when they are in their learning groups. The only exceptions are when:
  • They are sitting or standing at their seat or workstation in a classroom
  • There is a barrier in place
  • They are eating or drinking
Please refer to the updated health and safety guidelines in the Restart Plan. Please emphasize the expectations and key behaviours with your children, which ensure that together, we can continue to move towards the fullest experience of Stratford Hall's programmes and resources.
