At Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board, the goal is to keep students safe and learning at school.  Therefore, working in partnership with Hastings Prince Edward Public Health, a new enhanced daily screeening tool has been implemented for all students, staff, and visitors to schools.

Beginning December 7, 2021, anyone going to a school must pass the provincial screening tool AND the HPE Enhanced Screening Tool before going to school. The updated HPE Enhanced Screening Tool includes the following:
• daily screening for sore throat or difficulty swallowing;
• runny or stuffy nose;
• abdominal pain;
• headache (unusual or long lasting);
• conjunctivitis (pink eye); or
• decreased/lack of appetite.
Thank you for your diligence in keeping Eastside safe and healthy!
