The Richmond School District is continuing to work with Vancouver Costal Health in monitoring this complex situation. At this point in time, VCH is recommending that staff and students who are returning from the Hubei Province, China should consider staying home for 14 days after leaving Hubei. While these recommendations are important, they are voluntary. The VCH has also indicated that participating in field trips, school events and outings continue to be safe for children. It is important during these difficult times that we continue to ensure that all families and children feel welcome to come to school. For more information, please see attached memo in English and Chinese from our District and VCH. Families are welcome to contact myself or Mr. Shuto at anytime.
