If you have concerns with how the policy on mask exemptions are being addressed at your school, please bring your concerns to your admin. If you are not satisfied with their response, bring the matter to your school Health and Safety committee and ask them to recommend that potential strategies are explored regarding those with mask exemptions.
Here are the guidelines from the government on mask exemptions:
ADDRESSING MASK EXEMPTIONS FOR STUDENTS, STAFF AND VISITORS
Schools are expected to work with staff, students (or their parents/caregivers, if applicable) and visitors with mask exemptions to explore potential strategies to reinforce and enhance other safety measures to ensure their safety and the safety of others. They are not required to provide a doctor’s note. Alternative measures must not be punitive or stigmatizing in nature, or prevent a student from attending or fully participating in-person at school.Leave a reply
