Commitment to Self-Screening

Families in AMDSB are asked to screen their child every day before attending school in-person. The Public Health Agency of Canada has indicated that this is the most important factor in slowing the spread of COVID-19. Please click the black button below to access the online screening tool. **NOTE: this online tool was revised on October 2, 2020.
 
If you require a printed screening tool, please contact your school.
 
 
The AMDSB Back to School Plan is a "living document," which means changes will continue to be made regularly. As more information is learned, the document will be updated accordingly. Please refer to the document for answers to your questions. If you are looking for information that is not included in the plan, please contact us at COVIDquestions@ed.amdsb.ca.
 
Huron Perth Public Health also has a website dedicated to schools and has a "Frequently Asked Questions" section that may be of interest. Visit www.hpph.ca/schools for more details. 
 
The AMDSB Back to School Plan is based on the Ministry of Education's Guide to Re-opening Schools.
