Communicable Disease Prevention Plan

Good morning everyone,

Attached to this note you will find the up to date version of the district Communicable Disease Prevention Plan. Our main focus when returning to school will be about keeping all of our students and staff safe. Our guidelines are based on information we receive from BCCD and the District.

Focuses for the fall will be to continue to:

  • Reduce unintentional contact
  • Be mindful of personal space by maintaining distance
  • All adults wear masks inside
  • All grade 4/5 students are asked to wear masks while indoors
  • It is recommended that K-3 students wear masks while indoors
  • We will continue to teach and practice regular hand washing and hygiene
  • We ask families to complete a daily health check and to not come to school unwell

The staff and students here at Cloverdale are used to these protocols, so we expect them to become part of our daily routines quickly.


With these important focuses in mind, we will be asking parents to:

  • Continue to drop off/pick up children at designated outside areas
  • Report to the office to check in when entering the building
  • Wear a mask when coming into the building (barring any medical exemptions)
  • We request that you enter the school if you need direct support from our office staff or if there is an emergent issue that you need help with. It would be very much appreciated if you can connect via phone or email as much as possible
  • Any guests coming into the school will be required to be double vaccinated. Their visit will be directly connected to contributing to the learning environment of the class
  • At this time there will be no large gatherings or assemblies


I will keep you updated as we get more information. Keeping in mind that K-5 students have not had the opportunity to be vaccinated, we believe these protocols will keep students, staff and our families safe while attending Cloverdale Traditional School.


I’m looking forward to seeing all of the children next week!

Respectfully Yours,

Sue Ottenbreit
