Vaccine Mandates for Adults at High Prairie School Division

Vaccine Mandates for Adults at High Prairie School Division
Posted on 10/12/2021

At a special meeting on Friday, October 8, 2021, held by the High Prairie School Division Board of Trustees, the following motion was carried regarding vaccine mandates for adults in HPSD buildings:

 

To require that all High Prairie School Division employees, volunteers, and HPSD partners follow the Administrative Procedure on mandatory vaccinations for Covid-19 and that the same administrative procedure be followed by all contracted service providers and tenants in HPSD buildings.  

 

The directives in the administrative procedure will be that all employees, volunteers and HPSD partners, as well as contracted service providers and tenants that will be entering division buildings, will need to show proof of full vaccination or a legally accepted exemption to be detailed in the new administrative procedure, by December 17, 2021. The Division will be developing the administrative procedure based on best practices from other school authorities who are implementing proof-of-vaccination programs while being in alignment with Occupational, Health, and Safety requirements and relevant legislation. This administrative procedure will not apply to children or students.

 

This Board decision comes after a letter from the Ministers of Education and Health was sent to all school authorities in the province encouraging mandatory proof-of-vaccination policies for adults in schools.

 

Our priority throughout the pandemic has been to keep our schools safe, healthy, and open for students and staff. This new administrative procedure is currently being drafted and will be posted on our website and shared with all staff and families once it is completed. Thank you for your ongoing support.
