Welcome BFEC Students:
It is hard to believe summer break is nearly over and we are looking at opening the doors next week. I hope you were able to enjoy some of that awesome sunshine these last couple months.

School and COVID-19:
In a recent news conference, the province shared the details for a safe return Back to School as we continue to live with COVID-19. Learn more here year, the daily routine will be similar to previous school years before COVID-19.

However, to ensure schools are as safe as possible, core public health measures will remain in place. These include:
·        frequent hand washing and sanitizing;
·        cleaning of high-touch surfaces; and,
·        staying home if you are feeling sick (attached is the most recent Daily COVID-19               Checklist)
As an additional layer of safety, all students, staff, and visitors will be required to wear masks inside schools to start the school year. Schools will transition away from mandatory masks once the province reaches Phase 5 of its re-opening plan.

Public Health Guidance
We will continue to take advice from Public Health, which means we will need to be flexible and adapt our safety measures as they monitor the number of COVID-19 cases in our communities. We may need to adopt stricter public health measures on a temporary basis in individual schools, families of schools and/or communities. And, while it is unexpected, if we are required to move to at-home learning, we will follow an approach similar to last year.

We look forward to seeing you on the 7th!
