Playground Re-Opening Information

Elementary School Playgrounds Are Re-Opening

We are happy to inform you that our playground structures will be re-opening for students on June 1st. The re-opening of our playground structures is a positive development as we know that outdoor physical activity and play is vital for children.

We will monitor and supervise the use of the playgrounds when students are outside, and we will have guidelines regarding how many students may be on the playground structures, maintaining appropriate distancing, keeping your hands to yourself, avoiding touching your face, and washing hands before and after being on the playground equipment. After school, if students and families choose to play on the playgrounds, we would ask that the children follow the guidelines being using during the school day.

As well, to support the health and safety of our students and staff, the playgrounds are only to be used during school hours (Monday to Friday from 8:30 am – 3:00 pm) by students who are attending school during the month of June.

Please note that handwashing is one of our most effective means of preventing the spread of viruses so this will be an important part of any play time. Based on the information from the BC Centre for Disease Control, children are not the primary drivers of COVID-19 spread in schools or in community settings.

Prior to the re-opening of the playground structures, they will be inspected by our maintenance department. We look forward to students being able to have fun and play safely on our playgrounds.

 

各位家长、同学们:小学的操场和户外运动设施将从61号重新开始启用

我们非常高兴地通知大家,从61号开始,小学的操场和户外运动设施重新启用。重新启用意味着积极的进展,因为我们深知户外活动对孩子非常重要。

在学生们使用操场和户外运动设施的时候,学校会提供监护和照管,保证学生遵守有关规定,包括:人数限定,让学生之间保持必要的社交距离,手不乱摸乱碰,避免用手触碰脸部,在使用户外运动设施后立即洗手。放学以后,如果学生和家长想继续留在户外运动设施处玩耍,学校要求大家遵守学校上课时的相关规定。

同样的,为了保证全体同学和教职员工的安全和健康,学校的户外运动设施只能在上课时间(每周一至周五,早上8:30到下午3点之间),开放给6月份到校上课的同学使用

请留意:在任何时候,洗手仍然是最有效的防止病毒扩散的方法之一,学生们在进行任何游戏的时候,洗手尤为关键。根据“卑诗省疾病控制中心”所提供的信息,在学校和社区内,儿童不是新冠病毒的主要传播者。

在这些户外运动设施重新开放之前,教育局的维修部门将会做检查,学校希望各位同学能够安全、愉快地使用这些设施。
