A Nut, Shell Fish and Scent Sensitive School

Hebbville Academy Parent Letter

Welcome back, Patriots! As you know, Hebbville Academy returns to in-school learning on Monday, January 17th. In preparation for this, we wanted to highlight some housekeeping items that are important to know upon our return;

As a reminder - core public health measures continue to be a part of daily operations in schools, including staying home when sick, masking, hand hygiene, and cleaning and disinfecting. Vaccination is the most effective way to reduce the risk of COVID-19. Please see:

https://backtoschool.ednet.ns.ca/public-health-guidance for more details on these measures;

• As a reminder, 3 layered non-medical masks or medical masks are required indoors when physical distancing is not possible. Students will be provided with these upon their return. Bandanas and neck gaiters are not permitted. Students in PP-4 are encouraged to bring extra masks from home as they tend to lose and/or destroy masks at a much faster rate than their older counterparts;

• Elementary school (PP-4) opens to students at 7:35 am;

• Jr. High school (5-9) opens to students at 8:40 am;

• The cafeteria is closed to student use. Students will eat lunch with their class/group in their classrooms. Students should order their lunches for the week through School Cash Online – students are discouraged from buying their lunch with cash every day;

• Microwaves will not be available for students to heat up their food;

• All students should bring their own water bottles from home;

• Avoid sharing personal items such as water bottles, lip gloss and food;

• Lockers/cubbies can continue to be used. Students should try to minimize the frequency and duration of visits to their lockers;

• Non-essential visitors are not permitted in the school. Only essential visitors who produce proof of vaccine and who wear masks are permitted in the building;

• Music and band classes - For now, no singing or wind instruments will be allowed;

• Mixing of classes (cohorts) will not be allowed so sectionals will be postponed;

• Technology – Grades 3 – 6 should bring technology (Chromebooks, iPads & chargers) back to school where it is to stay. Grades 7- 9 should bring their charged Chromebooks back and forth to school each day;

• PP-4 students are reminded to bring their indoor shoes back to school.

Cannot wait to see everybody!
