BC Government Expands Mask Mandate to Include K-Grade 3 Students

Today, the provincial government has expanded its provincial health and safety measures to mandate masks for all students in B.C. Starting Monday, Oct. 4, all public and independent school students in B.C. will be required to wear a mask when inside school buildings, including while at their desks and on buses. This is an update to previous guidelines, which mandated masks for Grade 4-12 students only. The new mandate now also applies to kindergarten to Grade 3 students. Masks are an effective layer of protection, in concert with other measures such as frequent hand washing, daily health checks and staying home when sick. Here are some helpful links to use with your kindergarten to Grade 3 student about how to safely wear a mask. • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LsTSkUUK9v0 • https://thekidshouldseethis.com/post/how-to-wear-a-mask-in-school-kids-video For more information on provincial health and safety measures in schools, see the Provincial COVID-19 Communicable Disease Guidelines for K-12 Settings.

COVID 19 Protocols

All families are asked to please do a health check with their child before sending them to school. If your child has any symptoms, they need to stay home from school.

The K to 12 Health Check website and app is an easy way to decide if your child should attend school based on their symptoms. It includes current health guidelines and offers an age-appropriate user experience for K to 12 students.

Students in grade 4 and 5 are required to wear a mask in the building.

Please see below or click here for the current updates regarding COVID-19 Planning and Procedures for our school, as well as some Frequently Asked Questions.

We thank you for keeping your 2-meter distance when dropping and picking up your child. We would appreciate if any adults coming onto the school property consider wearing a mask. Your attention to this request is greatly appreciated as we work together in keeping our school safe.


Welcome to Chilliwack Central Elementary Community School

Located in the heart of downtown Chilliwack, Central school has been educating the citizens of our city for almost 100 years.  We have some wonderful plans for this school year . We will continue to work together for health, safety and ongoing learning.

The staff members at Central are committed to providing a safe and caring environment for every child.  We are committed to improving student achievement in all areas which includes academic, social and physical skills that are essential to success both in school and in life. We know that sound thinking leads to success. Our desire is to see every child be successful at problem solving and have solid language and number skills.  We want every child to experience enjoyment and personal satisfaction and to learn to work effectively with others as they develop into caring, contributing members of our community.  The decisions made at Central will reflect this commitment.

We maintain an open communication policy with you at home.  Our website, class and school newsletters and our parent bulletin board outside of our school, are a few ways we try to stay in touch. Family involvement in a child's education is a key indicator of future success.

Please do not hesitate to call the school office (604-792-8537) if you require more information or wish to speak with a staff member.  We look forward to a great year together!

Kindest regards,

Mrs. L. Waddington, Principal
