Health & Wellness at the CBE

At the CBE, we believe in a whole school approach to health and wellness. We call this our Comprehensive School Health (CSH) approach. CSH is about healthy eating, active living, supportive social environments and positive mental health. As a system, we focus on the following four areas: healthy eating; healthy relationships; physical activity; and positive mental health. Each school creates its own approach and goals for health and wellness.

AHS COVID Guidelines for Staying Well

  • The Alberta Health Services (AHS) daily self-checklist must be completed on a daily prior to coming to school. Students showing any symptoms described on the self-screening checklist must remain home. Students who are ill or display cold-like, flu or COVID symptoms may not be in school. Students exhibiting signs of illness will be moved to a designated infirmary close to the administrative offices in the north hallway. This area will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected after the student has left.  It is critical that parents / guardians or a pre-identified emergency contact pick up an ill child when contacted by the school.
  • To promote staying well this school year, teachers will provide content for learning covered in class on their D2L shell. This tool will assist us in maintaining continuity of learning in the event of staff or student illness.  Students are also encouraged to find a buddy in their class with whom they can communicate about learning, so that if they are required to be at home, they can still keep up with the content being covered in class.
  • The Woodman facility staff size has increased and consists of five hard-working individuals committed to high standards for cleaning in the school.
  • CBE ventilation processes have increased; classroom doors will remain open for increased ventilation and many classrooms have windows which will be opened whenever possible
  • Hand sanitizing stations are located in entrances, exits, classroom without sinks and near high touch equipment. Students are asked to sanitize or wash their hands during these times: entering/exiting the building; changing classrooms; using the bathroom; or, eating/drinking.
  • To begin the school year, masks are mandatory for all students and staff. Mask guidelines allow for taking breaks when working within a cohort and sufficient physical distancing is achieved. Masks will not need to be worn during physical activity. During eating breaks, other precautionary measures like physical distancing and hand hygiene will be reinforced.
  • Physically distancing (at least two meters) is an important measure for mitigating the spread of COVID-19. Teachers will work to provide the needed physical spaces in the classroom and hallways. However, at the middle school level a major responsibility also lies with students to ensure they distance themselves sufficiently from their class mates, particularly during non-instructional times of the school day when teachers may not be able to fully control student movement.
