Parents are important partners in keeping our schools safe, so we appreciate your questions. This is a collection of the questions and answers that have come forward. As Interior Health/Public Health Orders or K-12 recommendations change, we will revise our responses.  We will also add to these questions as the community shares them with us.

If you have a question about your school’s measures, please reach out to your school principal. For questions about SD73’s District Communicable Disease Prevention Plan, email us at Return to School.

Here are completed overviews of the systems at each  Kamloops-Thompson school:
