Masks in Burnaby Schools

Masks are required for all K-12 staff and secondary students (Grades 8-12), even when they are in their learning group, except when:

    • sitting or standing at their seat or workstation in a classroom;
    • there is a barrier in place;
    • they are eating or drinking; or
    • outdoors.

Where masks are not mandatory, they are optional for all – including for students in Grades K-7, as per the Provincial guidelines for elementary students.

Additional detailed information about mask requirements and use can be found in the Burnaby School District – Stage 2 Return to School Health and Safety Handbook COVID-19.
