New Guidelines for Elementary Students as of March 8th

Following recommendations from Public Health and the Institut national de santé publique du Québec, the wearing of a procedural mask will be compulsory at all times in schools for elementary school students attending an establishment located in the red zone. As such, as of March 8, Grade 1 to 6 students will be required to wear a procedural mask in classrooms, common areas and on school transportation.

The masks will be supplied by the schools.

Public Health Recommendations and Spring Break

As per Public Health’s directives, we kindly remind you to continue to report positive COVID-19 cases during the March break (March 1st to March 5th inclusively). Should your child receive a positive test result for COVID-19 during this period, we ask that you advise his/her school.

Please also be reminded of the following:

Continue to protect yourself and others from the spread of COVID-19 by avoiding large gatherings and crowded places! 
It is a collective responsibility.
