Safety Protocols

​As we head into the second half of September, and with a rise in COVID cases across the province, I wanted to reiterate the health protocols that we currently have in place at EMJ, and what they mean for your children.
The health and safety of our students is our number one priority, and we continue to do everything possible to support our students on a daily basis across the school.  Some of the measures that are in place include:
The hiring of additional cleaning staff to sanitize high touch surfaces throughout the day
Consistent class cohorting, which means that classes are limited to their own group within the building throughout the day.  Students are with the same group all day, including during snack/eating times
When classes are outside during recess or lunch times, they continue to be cohorted and are only able to play in their designated spot for that day, which limits exposure to other students in other grades
Mandatory masking of all students (with the exception of those that have approved exemptions)
Students have a designated meeting spot outside at the beginning of each day, and the playground is closed in the morning before school
Parents are only allowed in office areas to pick up or drop off students if necessary
Meetings (such as school conferences) are held online to reduce the traffic in the building
Signs are up throughout the building reminding students of proper handwashing/etc., as well as floor markers to support traffic flow
Multiple sanitizer/handwashing stations throughout the school
Desks in classrooms are separated in order to provide the maximum amount of distance between students
Sports equipment, tools, and manipulatives are sanitized between uses
Physical distancing is maintained as much as possible throughout the day
Students exhibiting signs of illness will be moved to a supervised space away from other students. This area will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected after the student has been picked up
Although volunteers are valued members of our community in their support of our students, to minimize outside contact of established student cohorts, there are no volunteers working in the school
In-person guests such as guest speakers and artists in residence will not be invited into schools to minimize outside contact of established cohorts
Each student has been be provided with a personal pencil box filled with school supplies and notebooks that will be kept in their desk
Use of shared materials is minimized and when necessary, any shared supplies will be sanitized and/or quarantined for 72 hours between student use
Recess breaks and transitions in/out of the school are staggered so that cohorts do not mix. There are two separate recess times and two separate lunch times to limit exposure to other cohorts
When weather does not permit outside recess, students will participate in play and physical activity within their classroom during break times
We are working hard every day to ensure that our students remain safe, and appreciate the support of our community!
