Daily COVID-19 Screening

Daily screening for COVID-19 symptoms and staying home if you are sick remain important ways to reduce the spread of the virus. Please complete this daily for each child using the updated provincial screening, which is updated with symptoms typically seen with Omicron and new guidance on testing and isolation periods.

All schools must also return to the use of daily confirmation that a student in Kindergarten to Grade 12 has completed the screening. Confirmation can be done by showing an educator the green check mark at the end of the screening, that confirms a pass; or they can present a family signature on the monthly attestation calendar available online.
