As information about public health measures associated with COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) emerges, we will post it here. Please check frequently for latest messages, updates, and useful links.
Central Okanagan Public Schools' top priority is always the safety of our staff and students. We continue to work closely with local and provincial health authorities to get the latest information and ensure we cooperate with any recommended measures for COVID-19.
We continue to educate on best practices for preventing the spread of viral illness, including frequent and thorough handwashing and encouraging people to stay home from school or work when they show symptoms.
School campuses will remain closed to visitors unless otherwise invited. Students and families must not enter schools after Spring Break. This includes school grounds, playgrounds, classrooms, and StrongStart Centres. If you have personal items within your child(ren)'s school, we ask that you wait for invitation to pick up these items.
If you are an essential service worker (ESW) with a child aged 0-5, please see this news release from the Province of BC for information on how to connect with childcare.

The new provincial Foundry Virtual Drop-In Counselling service was launched this week offering counselling services to young people ages 12-24 and their families who are living in British Columbia. Foundry is working to ensure all young people across BC have access to the care and support they need, when they need it. Foundry is now offering virtual drop-in counselling sessions through chat, phone calls, or video calls!

(Generous Academic Trustworthy Organized Respectful Safe)
The student learners at North Glenmore Elementary School are kindly reminding our community partners that at no time should there be dogs on our playing fields. Unfortunately some neighbours have been using our campus with their dogs and leaving quite an unsanitary mess behind. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter. This applies SEVEN DAYS A WEEK including EVENINGS AND WEEKENDS.
