Return to LCC Campus Guidelines for Students

The following guidelines have been developed with your safety in mind. The guidelines are aligned with the current orders of the Office of the Provincial Health Officer, the Covid-19 Return to Campus Primer published by BC Post-Secondary Institutions with the support of the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Training as well as the ISSofBC and LCC Covid-19 Safety Plans and communicable Disease Prevention Plan. These guidelines will be updated as new information becomes available.

We are aware that some may feel worried or have concerns about returning to in-person instruction after 18 months of remote learning. We wish to assure everyone that we are following the current guidelines to ensure the health and safety of all our students, teachers and staff. Therefore, to accommodate a gradual return to in-person instruction, you have a choice of attending lessons either in person or online.

Before attending in-person classes all students must fill out an In-person Health Assessment form.

ESL students who register for in-person classes will receive this form from the office and return it to the office before arriving at LCC.

Students currently enrolled in online ESL and vocational courses will be invited to attend in-person classes by their teachers. Please, do not come to LCC if you haven’t received an invitation from your teacher. Your teacher will ask you to fill out the In-Person Health Assessment form. Please return the completed and signed form to your teacher before you start attending in-person classes.

Regardless of how you join the lessons, your teacher will

  • email you the materials and an invitation to join the lessons on Microsoft Teams
  • take attendance every day, and
  • require you to participate and hand in all work/assignments.

All students, teachers, staff and visitors are required to wear masks in classrooms and in all indoor areas including the offices, hallways, washrooms and elevators.

Daily health assessment:
Please conduct a daily self-assessment by answering the following four questions before leaving home for school.

a) Do I have any new symptoms (cough, sore throat, fever)?

b) Have I travelled outside of Canada in the past 14 days?

c) Have I or any member of my household been asked to self-isolate?

d) To the best of my knowledge, have I or any member of my household been in contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case?

If your answer to any of the questions above is “yes”, please stay home and get tested immediately. You can still join the lessons online.

Classrooms:

• You will also be asked to choose a seat in the classroom and use the same seat every day.
• Hand sanitizer will be available in the elevators and the lobby and high touch areas such as desks, chairs and door handles will be cleaned daily.
• Please wash your hands regularly and cough/sneeze into your elbow.
• Do not arrive more than 15 minutes before your class is scheduled to start.
• Leave the school immediately after your classes end unless you need to speak to a staff
member.

Student lounge:

• Full-time students can eat lunch at their desk in their afternoon classroom. Part-time students are asked to have lunch off-site.
• The student lounge will be open for students to use the microwaves and the water cooler only.
Please do not congregate in the student lounge.
Washrooms:
• The washrooms are open. Please ask your teacher for the codes to the washrooms.
• Please wash your hands after using the washroom and dry your hands using the paper towels
provided.
• The washrooms are checked and cleaned twice a day: at 1:15 pm and in the evening after the afternoon classes are finished

Computer lab:

• The computer lab will be closed until further notice. You can bring your own laptop if you wish.
• There will be no access to printers or photocopiers.

Offices (601 + 603):

• The offices are located in rooms 601 and 603.
• To avoid crowding in the offices at break times and before and after classes, please call the
school at tel. 604-684-2325 and ask for the person you wish to speak with or make an
appointment to see them.
• Please do not enter an office if you see the staff is already assisting someone else. Wait in the hallway for your turn.
