Students’ Return to HSS

The following is the Re-entry plan for Hazelton Secondary School students.  These rules are based off Dr. Bonnie Henry of the provincial health office and the ministry’s safety protocols.  Regardless of personal beliefs, we ask that you respect the rights of others and follow the physical distancing rules as laid out by Dr. Henry and the ministry.  At HSS, we take our students’ and staff’s safety very seriously.  Failure to follow these rules will result in students being sent home where they will continue their learning remotely. 

Entering the building

  • A schedule of which students will attend HSS on which days is being developed and will be issued to student, guardians and staff prior to June 1st. This will include a bus schedule.

Locker Clean Out

As we continue with our rollout for student work, things are starting to settle a bit here at HSS to the point that we can now start to allow parents to come to the school to collect the things from their children’s lockers. If you would like to do so, we ask that you call the school in advance and arrange a time in which you can come and collect their things. We have staff who will go to the lockers and collect the materials and for this reason, as well as our policy on social distancing, we will not be accepting cold calls into the school, please do not just drop in. Parents are to call between 9AM and 1:30PM and arrange a time you will be by to pick up your child’s things. It will be placed in a bin outside our school so parents can come and pick it up safely. If you are unable to come to the school, please call the school directly at 250-842-5214 and we can make alternative arrangements. Thank you to everyone for your patience and hope everyone remains safe and healthy.
