New Brunswick’s independent schools make their own rules about staff vaccinations – CBC

Some schools are following the province’s mandatory vaccination policy, others aren’t

As the clock ticks down to the deadline for public school employees to be fully vaccinated, independent schools around the province are making their own rules for employees.

For Rothesay Netherwood School, the rules reflect what’s happening in public schools, explained Paul McLellan, head of school.

When the government announced all employees would have to be vaccinated, “that was our opportunity to follow in step with them,” McLellan said.

“We thought that was pretty consistent with our data and where we wanted to go.”

Similarly, RNS employees who opt not to be vaccinated will be sent home without pay.

“If they’re not willing to meet the vaccination policy, they won’t be able to come to work,” McLellan said. “So, you know, I think it’s fairly self-explanatory what happens.”
