RE-ENTERING HORIZON - Phase III_ Learning, Health and Wellness, and Engagement Plan -2.pdf

Preamble:

On June 9, 2020, the Government of Saskatchewan announced that in-classroom learning will resume for the 2020-21 school year. This plan complies with the guidelines prescribed by Saskatchewan’s Ministry of Education and the recommendations of the Chief Medical Health Officer (CMHO). It has been developed with input from Administrators and Horizon Teachers’ Association (HTA) and takes into consideration the experiences shared by teachers across Horizon School Division during the COVID-19 Pandemic Emergency Remote Learning Phase. This plan is intended to support teachers and administrators in the decisions around ensuring the safety and well-being of children while offering optimal instruction and programming. In addition, it will provide assurances to parents and caregivers that Horizon School Division (and its community of educators) hold the best interest of children’s safety and education as its highest priority. 


Schools will respond to the needs within their communities using these guidelines as the framework for key decisions. This document is responsive in nature and will be updated as new information or circumstances arise.


Horizon School Division recognizes the importance of implementing prevention and mitigation efforts. When necessary, we must act upon well-established procedures when disruptive events threaten the safety of a person, property, or learning. We are committed to protecting the health and safety of our staff and communities. In an effort to reduce the risk of spreading the COVID-19 virus.


Beginning August 24, 2020 all employees will be required to report to their place of work respecting these guidelines.


We will continue to review and modify the COVID-19 work and instructional arrangements as necessary based on recommendations from the Chief Medical Health Officer. Every effort should be made to maintain physical distancing when possible and staying away from worksites when sick. The Division recognizes the need to be flexible due to the varying nature and configuration of schools, however, the guidelines listed should be adhered to.
