News item: Update about HEPA filters in schools

Recently, our Division received approval from the provincial government to access surplus dollars to purchase a HEPA filtration system for every classroom. The units have been ordered and are expected to start arriving shortly. We anticipate that classrooms will receive their individual units throughout the month of March.

Protecting students and staff

The health and safety of our students and staff is a priority for our Division. We continue to take steps to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission for students and staff. Measures include good hand hygiene, enhanced cleaning practices and well-maintained ventilation systems.
