Everyone must use hand sanitizer upon arrival in the building and after exiting their class. Students must use hand sanitizer upon entering and exiting the classrooms.
Masks are required in all common areas, even if just walking through the building. Teachers will wear masks for all classes. We will continue to be in compliance with Fraser Health regarding the usage of masks for students in public school classrooms.
Students with any symptoms of illness must stay home and participate in class with our online video option. Students who develop symptoms of illness while at the school must leave class and go home immediately. A separate isolation room will be used until the student is picked up. Signs posting these symptoms are displayed on the entry door of the building.

Each dance room has individual spaces marked out with tape for each student. Students will remain in their own space. Students will also use these marked out spaces to distance while travelling and all will travel the same direction. No partner work will happen this year for dance and no touching of each other will be allowed.
The water cooler has been removed, so students must bring their own water bottle.
The school has increased daily sanitization and cleaning with hospital grade cleaners using a professional outside janitorial service that is certified to clean government offices.
Should an exposure to COVID-10 happen, the school will contact Fraser Health immediately and follow all protocols as directed. The school has contacts for every person that is coming in the building.
