NORTH BATTLEFORD - Both the Living Sky School Division and the Light of Christ School Division will be requiring proof of COVID-19 vaccination or negative test for staff members.
According to a joint news release issued Monday afternoon by the school divisions, the divisions will soon be implementing what is described as “a Vaccination Administrative Procedure” that will require all staff members to provide either proof of vaccination or recent negative COVID-19 testing status.
According to the news release, information was shared with staff members from both divisions Oct. 8. Details are being finalized and more information will be available by the end of the week, including the implementation date.
The move is described by the divisions as their response to the province-wide vaccine and testing requirements implemented by the province Oct. 1.
In a statement they say the following: “We take the safety of our students and staff seriously. As responsible employers and citizens of the province of Saskatchewan, we are committed to protecting the health and well-being of our students, staff members and communities.”
