School District No. 83 (North Okanagan-Shuswap)

Health Awareness

Help keep our schools healthy! To help reduce the risk of a communicable disease coming to a school or school district site, students, staff and other adults (parents, visitors, etc) are asked to practice “Health Awareness” prior to entering the building. Health Awareness means checking for symptoms of illness (including but not limited to COVID-19 symptoms) and not coming to school when sick. 
Visitors should be aware of the communicable disease prevention plan personal practices, which include: 

  • check for symptoms of illness and stay home if sick
  • wearing a mask or face covering is a personal choice
  • practice hand hygiene often
  • practice respiratory etiquette
  • respect personal space
  • avoid sharing items that come into contact with the mouth (e.g. food, drinks, utensils, etc)
