Update to EIPS Operations Guidelines: 2021-22

Today, Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) posted an updated version of its EIPS Operations Guidelines: 2021-22 online. The document outlines how schools are operating and the public-health measures in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Updates and additions were made throughout the document to reflect the province’s current state of public-health emergency and related public-health orders. EIPS encourages everyone to read through the updated operations guidelines, and reference the document, on an ongoing basis.
