Health & Wellness in School
For the 2020-21 school year, the CBE will require all staff and students (kindergarten to Grade 12) to wear a mask at school. This includes classrooms and public spaces such as hallways, learning commons, bathrooms, etc.
When staff and students take breaks from wearing a mask, it will be important for other measures to be adhered to like physical distancing, hand hygiene, and sanitizing surfaces.
Exemptions will be made for students who are unable to wear a mask due to medical or other needs. Exemptions will also be made for staff as needed.
CBE Non-Medical Face Mask Guidelines are available here.
Students or staff who take Calgary Transit to school or work must wear masks while on buses or C-trains. The City of Calgary has required the wearing of face coverings or masks in all indoor public areas and public vehicles.
