  • COVID-19 and Schools Update

     
    Immunizations
    Hastings Prince Edward Public Health (HPEPH) strongly recommends that everyone who is eligible, gets fully vaccinated to protect against serious effects of COVID-19.  However, currently only 57% of local students aged 12-17 years of age are fullyvaccinated. Increasing vaccination rates among this age group is critical to keeping us all safe. 
     
    Eastside Secondary School is hosting a COVID-19 Immunization Clinic on September 15th.  Please learn more about vaccination clinics here.  Please see a Q&A about students and vaccinations here.

    Confirmation of Daily Screening

    Students are required to confirm they have passed COVID-19 screening each day before going to school. Parents/guardians are asked to complete this Google Form to confirm that you agree to screen your student before they are sent to school.
