Drinking Water Policy
As a Distributed Learning (DL) Independent School, our students are located in their homes; as such, the Heritage Christian Online School HCOS drinking water policy is not applicable to these learning environments. In regards to the main office facility, they are compliant with water testing requirements as per the Drinking Water Protection Act and the Public Health Act.
Where external rental facilities are used for face to face learning, students are required to bring potable water to the site.
