REMINDER ABOUT USING THE SELF-ASSESSMENT TOOL ABOUT USING THE SELF-ASSESSMENT TOOL<p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.38;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;"><span style="font-size:11pt;font-family:arial;color:#000000;background-color:transparent;font-weight:400;font-style:normal;font-variant:normal;text-decoration:none;vertical-align:baseline;white-space:pre-wrap;">Dear Birchview Families,</span></p><strong><br><p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.38;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;"><span style="font-size:11pt;font-family:arial;color:#000000;background-color:transparent;font-weight:400;font-style:normal;font-variant:normal;text-decoration:none;vertical-align:baseline;white-space:pre-wrap;">We are reaching out today to remind you to please use the self-assessment tool prior to sending your child to school. If they have illness symptoms, please keep them home and follow the self-assessment tool directions. Once at school if they present with symptoms we are going to call to have them picked up. They cannot be present at school. Once your child exhibits symptoms of COVID 19 they must either see a health care provider to receive a non-covid diagnosis for their symptoms or go and get a COVID test. Once they have a negative test or different diagnosis they may come back to school 24 hours after the symptoms resolve and you notify the school office.</span></p><br><p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.38;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;"><span style="font-size:11pt;font-family:arial;color:#000000;background-color:transparent;font-weight:400;font-style:normal;font-variant:normal;text-decoration:none;vertical-align:baseline;white-space:pre-wrap;">Thanks for your cooperation. <br></span></p></strong>

PROCEDURE UPDATE - DROP OFF and PICK UP UPDATE - DROP OFF and PICK UP<p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.38;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;">​<span style="font-size:11pt;font-family:arial;color:#000000;background-color:transparent;font-weight:700;font-style:normal;font-variant:normal;text-decoration:underline;vertical-align:baseline;white-space:pre-wrap;">Good afternoon Birchview Families,</span></p><strong><br><p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.38;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;"><span style="font-size:11pt;font-family:arial;color:#000000;background-color:transparent;font-weight:700;font-style:normal;font-variant:normal;text-decoration:underline;vertical-align:baseline;white-space:pre-wrap;">Procedure#4- </span><span style="font-size:11pt;font-family:arial;color:#000000;background-color:transparent;font-weight:700;font-style:normal;font-variant:normal;text-decoration:none;vertical-align:baseline;white-space:pre-wrap;">This year, families may drop off and pick up children in our school yard for the first day of school. It is critical that families take their child to their assigned homeroom teacher location and then leave the school yard. It is imperative for the health of our school community that we do not have people congregating in our yard. We ask you to create a meeting spot off school property wherever possible or to have an older student walk the younger students to an adult just off site. We have provided a map on our school website of locations parents can walk or drive to drop off their children. Similarly, we are encouraging families to drop off their child at the closest walkway to their homeroom meeting spot. It is imperative that we do not have our driveway and parking lot blocked with cars who do not have kindergarten children as they will have to walk through the kindergarten yard to get to their spot. It is much safer to access their meeting location by walking through the Bay Court, Caribou Trail or Dyer Drive walkways. </span></p><p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.38;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;"><span style="font-size:11pt;font-family:arial;color:#000000;background-color:transparent;font-weight:700;font-style:normal;font-variant:normal;text-decoration:none;vertical-align:baseline;white-space:pre-wrap;">Thanks for your assistance so far, Procedure #5 will be shared tomorrow!</span></p></strong>
