We have been made aware by three additional members of our school community that they have tested positive for COVID-19. This brings our total to 6 cases since our first notification on Thursday. We will be working with the local health authority to determine if there is any risk to other members of our school community or if any additional steps are required. We will follow the health authority’s guidance. The local health authority will connect directly with any individuals who may have been exposed with further instructions. If you are contacted by the health authority, please follow their advice carefully. If you have any symptoms, please stay home and follow the guidance from the BC Centre for Disease Control.
We will continue to follow the strict protocols and procedures that we have in place, including; hand washing, wearing masks in class, not seating students facing each other, and not engaging in activities that require prolonged face-to-face contact.
We ask that parents are vigilant about completing the daily health check before sending their child to school. I’ve attached an infographic to help with this process.
We ask for your patience, and we will communicate out official information from Northern Health as it becomes available.
