Safety in a time of pandemic
A Message from the Superintendent


Each May, this newsletter message typically highlights our excellent record of surpassing safety standards in Chinook’s Edge schools. Each year we proudly share audit results, which continually illustrate our division’s steadfast commitment to safety. While our schools are maintaining focused attention to our traditional safety protocols, what is most pressing for parents and communities to know is the level of care our staff continues to take in schools during this time of COVID-19.

School buildings and division office are operating with limited capacity and with strict protocols at this time. Many of our staff are engaged in moving learning forward online from home, and the limited staff who are present in each building are working within strict guidelines. There is hand sanitizer on workstations, restrictions on interactions, and caretaking staff onsite to ensure surfaces are continually cleaned and disinfected. In fact, caretakers in some of our schools have already completed their end-of-the-year deep cleaning. Everyone in Chinook’s Edge is doing their part to stay safe, to keep our facilities safe, and to use this time for completing additional projects. This way we will ensure we are ready - and very happy - to welcome our students back to school when we are able to do so.
