In response to rising cases of COVID-19 in our region, we are expanding our on-campus mask wearing policy. With the exception of waiting in vehicles or helping children load/unload, all parents/guardians and visitors are required to wear masks both outdoors and indoors while on campus at Vernon Christian School. This is effective immediately and will be in place until further notice.
This new policy may be met with some negative feelings or frustration and we understand that. However, the VCS Administration team has determined that this is a necessary step in keeping safe not just the VCS community, but the greater Okanagan area as well. There are members of the community with compromised immune systems and this is a way that we can show both love and care for our neighbours. To note, this has been implemented throughout our local school district and at a number of SCSBC schools.
We understand that there may be some in our parent community who cannot tolerate masks. If this is the case for you, please let a member of the administration team know.
Also, we ask that you continue to be mindful of social distancing recommendations (6ft/2m) when on site at VCS.
