Week at a Glance

Hello Storrington Stingers,

We hope that all of our Stingers are safe and healthy.

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


Game of Zones

During the month of February, each class participated in a Game of Zones competition where classes were recognized each day for following the Covid rules and routines.  Congratulations to Ms. Freeland/Ms.Griffin’s class and to Ms. Robert’s class for being recognized the most during the month of February.  Each class won a pizza party, which they celebrated last week.  We look forward to continuing with our Game of Zones for the rest of the school year.  


Outdoor Clothing

Due to our current COVID guidelines and expectations, we are trying to get our Stingers outside as much as possible.  This is an opportunity for our Stingers to take off their masks and get some fresh air.  During the springtime, certain areas of our yard often become very wet and muddy.  Although we try to limit student access to these areas, accidents do occur.  We encourage our younger Stingers to come to school with an extra set of clothing, rubber boots and splash pants.   

Storrington Spirit Week

Next week, we are very excited to be celebrating our Storrington Spirit Week.  Each day we encourage our Stingers to show their Stinger pride and dress up.

Covid Protocol

The province has released a new version of the COVID-19 School & Child Care Screening Tool. This tool is to be used by school board staff as well as students. The revised tool includes changes to stay-at-home requirements for those with symptoms and isolation requirements for household contacts of those with symptoms.


Effective immediately:

Staff and students with any new or worsening symptom of COVID-19, even those with only one symptom, must stay home until:

-They receive a negative COVID-19 test result.

-They receive an alternative diagnosis by a health care professional, or

-It has been 10 days since their symptom onset and they are feeling better.


If the symptomatic individual tests positive for COVID-19, or is not tested, and does not receive an alternative diagnosis from a health-care professional, the symptomatic individual must isolate (including from household members) for 10 days from symptom onset. All household contacts must isolate until 14 days from their last contact with the symptomatic individual (a total of 24 days if the symptomatic individual is not able to effectively self isolate from other members of the household).
