Monday, October 4: K-3 Students Need to Wear Masks – Time Sensitive Information

Dear Parents and Guardians:

I am following up on the email from the Burnaby School District sent on September 30 alerting families that, beginning this Monday October 4, masks will also be mandatory for students in Kindergarten to Grade 3. You can learn more here.

This morning the Provincial Health Officer and Minister of Education extended the mask mandate province-wide for Kindergarten to Grade 3. You can see their press release here.

As masks were already required for all staff, visitors and students in Grades 4-12, these changes extend the mask mandate to all students in our school while indoors and on school buses.

Staff will continue to have a positive and supportive approach with students regarding mask wearing. Thank you for your support in encouraging your child to wear a mask at school.

Should you have any questions, as always, please feel free to reach out to me. Have a wonderful weekend.

Best regards,  Shairoz Merani, Principal / directeur, Seaforth Elementary
