The importance of Daily Health Checks as students head back to class

Don't forget to do your Daily Health Check!As students in the Surrey School District return to class on Jan. 10 from the extended winter break, Daily Health Checks remain a crucial step in ensuring the health and safety of staff and students.

The the district reminds students and staff to Check Up, Back Up, Wash Up, Mask Up and Vax Up, as part of our ongoing health and safety protocols. Everyone, including students, staff, parents, caregivers and all visitors, must continue to monitor their health every day to determine if they should come to school.

It is critical that we follow this guidance as daily health checks are our schools' first and most important line of defense against COVID-19. You should not come to school if you feel unwell. Stay home and seek a health assessment by contacting your healthcare provider or calling 8-1-1 if you feel sick.

* Links to Daily Health Check forms are available in multiple languages on the district's COVID-19 Health & Safety page. *

You can also use the BC COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tool here.

Students and staff who have travelled outside of Canada are required to follow both provincial and federal requirements for entry. This includes students who are attending school from abroad.

If you have been in close contact with a person confirmed to have COVID-19, follow the instructions provided by public health. You can call 8-1-1 anytime to get advice about how you are feeling and what to do next. If it becomes harder to breathe, you can't drink anything or you feel much worse, seek urgent medical care at an urgent care clinic or emergency department.

It is everyone's responsibility to ensure they are healthy to attend school, and to stay home to protect others if they are not. Please do your part to keep yourself, your families and your school communities safe!
