VFA Update – Covid 19

Dear VFA High School Parents, Guardian and Students:

We are looking forward to welcoming all of our Fall 2020 students back to class on September 9 at 9:15 am.  New students will be oriented on Tuesday, September 8, 2020.

As you know, during the summer,  the BC Ministry of Education announced that schools are re-opening for class this Fall. As we are a small school with a lot of space in the building, we are confident that we can provide a very safe environment for our students and staff.    

At VFA High School, our priority is keeping everyone safe and healthy during this time. We have developed a detailed COVID-19 Health and Safety Plan, including such infection control measures as:

  • Symptom Assessment and Illness Policies and procedures
  • Physical Distancing Strategies and Minimal Physical Contact
  • Hand Hygiene
  • Personal Protective Equipment
  • Frequent Cleaning and Disinfection
  • Lunchtime Protocol

All students and their guardians have received emails outlining the main points of these requirements, with appropriate translations as required.  More information will be given during  Student Safety Orientation sessions on September 9, 2020.
