Should my child stay home from school?

ArushaTimes News

Students who are healthy should attend school. Right now the risk of spread of the new coronavirus in British Columbia and in our schools is very low, and school is important for learning and for friendships.

Coughs and sniffles are a normal part of everyday life and students who are sick in the early stages may show no symptoms. Students who are visibly sick (fever, congestion, lethargy etc – no matter what they are sick with – should stay home from school until they feel well enough to participate fully in their school day.

Our students are gifted with strong immune systems, are healthy and resist infection. If your child does get sick, be assured they are building up resistance to that virus!
