Updated Mask Guidelines for Elementary Students

On Monday, March 29th, the Province announced that updated mask requirements for all K-12 schools would be implemented across British Columbia. Last night, we received the updated health and safety guidelines from the Ministry of Health. Over the next few days, our school district will begin implementing new measures specific to face coverings in Abbotsford Schools. All K-12 staff and all students in Grades 4 to 12 will be required to wear non-medical masks in all indoor areas, including when they are with their learning groups.

This will be a new health and safety procedure for our students in Grade 4 and Grade 5. At this time, families are encouraged to have their child wear a mask to school today and tomorrow, as we anticipate that some students may need assistance with adjusting to the change. The updated guidelines will come into full effect in all Abbotsford Schools on Tuesday, April 6th, when students return after the long weekend.
