R. 331 COVID Protocols

PROTOCOL 1     A HEPA filter will be running on level 2 of 3 in the classroom during class hours.
PROTOCOL 2     Toronto Public Health and the TDSB require an accurate seating plan that is strictly followed to allow for contact tracing if needed.  Arrive for the 1st in-person session, select a seat you like, and only sit in that location as the seating plan will be recorded for Toronto Public Health.
PROTOCOL 3     Classroom windows will be open as much as possible for maximum airflow. Pack a warm layer for the classroom.
PROTOCOL 4     Masks must be worn at all times indoors (classroom specifically).  Wearing a mask properly is part of a strategy to reduce viral transmission in our school community. Wearing a mask should be used in addition to other proven strategies including frequent washing of the hands, physical distancing as much as possible, avoiding touching the face, and vaccination.  Masks can be removed to eat and drink.  Let's do our best to keep everyone healthy at school and at home.
PROTOCOL 5     Washroom breaks while in class must be coordinated. Toronto Public Health and the TDSB require a limit on the number of students in a washroom.  A maximum of 3 students out of the classroom at a time will be followed.
ADDITIONAL PROTOCOLS     More may be added as we adapt and prefect our systems to changing recommendations, policies and conditions.
