Home / School News / Mask Policy at Colwood….


We have had some questions regarding the use of masks while picking up students at Colwood.  Just so everyone is in the loop, we at Colwood are following the guidance of the Provincial COVID-19 Communicable Disease Guidelines for K-12 Settings (Link: Attachment 3 – Provincial COVID-19 Health Safety Guidelines for K-12 Settings_November 17 2020 – DRAFT (gov.bc.ca)) and the SD62 expectations (Link: September 2021 | Sooke School District (sd62.bc.ca)).  In these guidelines, it says that all K-12 staff, 4-12 students, and visitors must be masked when inside the school, with certain exceptions, but there is no expectations for outside masking at this time.

Please note, however, that these are the current expectations.  As we know from the past year, adaptability and being responsive are important as we work through the government and local expectations. 

Thank you for asking the questions,
