Cold and Flu Season

The Ministry of Education has released a new version of their School Screening Tool, which has been updated to align with recent recommendations from the Chief Medical Officer of Health. We highly recommend using the new School Screening Tool to help you decide about sending your child to school. 

With the triple threat of Covid, flu/cold, and RSV circulating, please ensure that students with any symptoms (i.e. fever, cough) stay home to prevent the spread. Students are only to return to school once symptoms have been improving for 24 hours and after completing 2 negative covid tests. 

Anyone who is feeling sick or has any symptoms of illness, including those not listed in the screening tool, should stay home from school.
