Week at a Glance

Hello Storrington Stingers,

 

We hope that this email finds you all well and healthy.  

 

Please see the information below in this week’s Week at a Glance.  

 

New Outdoor Masking Protocol

On February 1, 2022,  KFLA Public Health changed the outdoor masking protocol for staff and students.  Staff and students are no longer required to wear their masks outside. Students must still wear their masks through the hallways as they make their way outside and we are asking students to put on their masks when they are in their classroom zones.  Masking rules for inside the school have not changed.

 

KFL&A Public Health Immunization Information

KFL&A Public Health will soon begin assessing student immunization records. Under the Immunization of School Pupils Act, children need to have proof of immunization against diphtheria, tetanus, polio, measles, mumps, rubella, meningococcal disease, whooping cough, and – for children born in 2010 or later – chickenpox to attend school.

 

Parents and guardians are responsible for reporting each time their child gets a vaccine to KFL&A Public Health. Make sure your child is up to date and report all immunizations to us. Talk to your health care provider if you are unsure if your child is up to date. If you do not have a health care provider, please contact KFL&A Public Health’s Immunization Team at 613-549-1232.

 

Use the Immunization Connect Ontario (ICON) tool to track and report immunization records.

 

Other options to report immunizations include:

• Uploading your child's immunization records using the school-aged child immunization history reporting e-form.

• Faxing a copy of the immunization record to 613-549-0985 (confidential fax).

• Mailing a copy of the immunization record to KFL&A Public Health - Immunization

Valentine’s Day Cards

This year, students are welcome to share Valentine’s Day cards within their own classroom/cohort.  We kindly ask that families do not send in treats to be shared.  

 

Confirmation of Daily Screening

Families must diligently screen students for symptoms of COVID-19 using  the revised screening tool. As well, each morning, students in Grades 7 and 8 are required to complete the Covid Screener Confirmation.  The confirmation is sent daily to Grade 7 and 8 students’ Limestone email accounts.  Students should not come to school if they have any symptoms and/or feel sick.
