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.
September 2, 2021, 10:00 am to 2:00 pm: Open House for Grade 9 students
This is a drop-in event. Grade 9 students will have the opportunity to take a tour of the school and find their classrooms for Quadmester 1. Student leaders and staff will be available to answer questions.
Please note that we will be observing limits on the number of students that can be in the school at one time as per COVID-19 protocols. Depending on your arrival time, you may experience a short wait before accessing the building. Masks must be worn in the school.
Back to Class, Ravens!
All staff and students are extended the warmest welcome back to Eastside Secondary School! We are looking forward to a productive, positive 2021-22 school year full of opportunities for each member of our community to soar!
Please find a letter from school administration here that will help to prepare you for September.
Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board has released updated guidance for a safe return to school in September 2021. We are confident that with the multiple layers of protective factors we have in place, we will enjoy a year of instruction, support and activity for all students.
This plan is aligned with the Ministry of Education guidance document.
