Three cohorts of students who were dismissed from Stella Maris Catholic Elementary School and St. Thomas of Villanova Catholic High School on Friday may return to school on Tuesday.

The school board says that based on the health unit’s direction to err on the side of caution, the students were dismissed because of an identified exposure to COVID-19 Friday.

The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit confirmed Sunday that no cases of COVID-19 among the dismissed cohorts.

“We have informed the affected school communities via voice message and have apologized for any confusion this may have caused, but have also explained that after consulting with the health unit we felt it was in the best interest of our students and staff to dismiss those cohorts on Friday,” said board spokesperson Stephen Fields.
