The Lethbridge School Division outlined their back to school platform for the upcoming school season. Schools will continue to provide enhanced cleaning measures during the day, and parents are being asked to monitor their kids for signs of COVID-19. Masking has been a divisive topic during the past year. Board chair for the Lethbridge School Division, Christine Light, says the decision was not made lightly to announce these updated masking measures when students return in the fall.
Students in high school are not required to wear a mask indoors, but visitors will have to wear a mask when they enter and exit a school. Teachers will have to wear masks only when they’re in common areas, and entering and exiting the building.
