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.  


2021-2024 LDSB Mental Health and Substance Use Strategy Survey

The Limestone District School Board is currently underway with developing the 2021-2024 Mental Health and Substance Use Strategy (MHSUS). Our aim is to develop common priorities, goals, and actions for supporting student mental health, substance use and well-being using feedback of students, Limestone families and community partners.  


Family survey

This survey is anonymous and confidential and open to all Limestone families. It is posted publicly on the Limestone website, along with an article explaining the strategy project, which you can view here


Elementary and secondary student surveys

Surveys have been sent to students in grades 7 to 12 directly to their Limestone email. Student surveys are confidential but not anonymous. Students have the opportunity to enter a draw to win one of twenty $25 President's Choice gift cards. 


Water Bottles

Please ensure that your child has a refillable water bottle.  With our COVID-19 protocol, students aren’t able to use the water fountains but they are able to refill their water bottles using the water bottle filling stations.

Updated 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).
