Dear Parents/Guardians,

Waterloo Region District School Board is introducing a new screening tool for students to use beginning on Tuesday, February 16th. Students will be expected to do a 2-step self-screening prior to attending school, as follows:

Step 1 – Complete the Self Screening Tool

Step 2 – Complete the Verification (showing that you completed the self-screen tool)

Step 3 – Show the confirmation email to staff upon arrival at school

Please complete the self-screen prior to coming to school on Tuesday and be prepared to show the confirmation email upon arrival at school. If you have questions about the verification step, we will review that part together on Tuesday morning. If your student does not have access to a mobile device we shall have paper copies available at the main entrance.

Here are some resources to help support the implementation of this step for students:

Google Slide Presentation to review all changes

These slides include many screenshots and also tips for creating shortcuts on Chromebooks, Apple, and Android devices.

A big thank you to all our students and their families for your understanding and adherence to these new guidelines. Everyone at Preston High School appreciates your continued support during this challenging time.

Thank You

Paula Bender, Principal
