Health Check for Everyone’s Sake

Much like last school year, we will be minimizing the number of adults (staff and others) who enter our school building or interact with students and staff as much as practical, while supporting learning in a positive, healthy, safe environment.
Any visitors requiring access to the school during regular school hours needs to contact Mr. Gurney ahead of time by phone (604-296-9002) or email (kurt.gurney@burnabyschools.ca) to ensure health protocols are followed.


▪ Parents and caregivers need to assess their children daily for illness before sending them to
▪ Parents/caregivers and students can utilize the provincial K-12 Health Check app for
daily assessment of symptoms or use the “Daily Health Check” for Students” (click HERE for PDF)
▪ If a student presents with symptoms, parents or caregivers must keep their child at home
until they have been assessed by a health-care provider, and where instructed, tested to
exclude COVID-19, and their symptoms have resolved.
▪ Students exhibiting signs of illness while onsite will work with Mr. Gurney, or designate, and will be moved to the isolation room.  Parents/caregivers must be notified and advised to pick-up the child immediately and the student’s desk/area will be disinfected.

Similar procedures happen with staff daily as well.

Together, we will continue to ensure the health and safety of our Forest Grove Community.

Thank you.
