Principal’s Update

In light of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic announcement, BSLS would like to update you on how we are addressing the concerns. 

BSLS is conducting regular review (and practice) of good health practices to all students and children, such as hand hygiene, cough etiquette, and regular cleaning practices.

BSLS is following cleaning procedures with the staff and children during the day, and with our cleaning company.  We are ensuring surfaces being used are being regularly disinfected.

The space between desks and students/children will be increased where possible.

All field trips will be cancelled or postponed until further notice.

We ask that you continue to reinforce the following at home:

  • frequent hand washing (at least 20 seconds)
  • coughing and sneezing into a tissue (preferred) or into your elbow
  • trying to maintain more distance between friends
  • no touching, no hugging, high fives at school

Please stay home if you are sick and/or also if you have symptoms of a respiratory illness until your symptoms are gone.

We have been asked to share the information below with families of our community.  The province will continue to provide the school with any further information that the school is to follow and/or any information that should be passed on to parents and families.
