The Catholic School board has dismissed a cohort of 24 students from St William Catholic Elementary School after receiving notification of a confirmed case of COVID 19 at the school.

The board says they learned of the confirmed case late Thursday afternoon and have notified the affected students that they are not to attend school Friday.

“We have been working with the health unit by providing lists of students and staff who may have been directly affected.    The health unit is contacting any individuals, both students, and staff, who may have been affected, and will give directions for them to follow,” said Stephen Fields, Communications Coordinator for the board, said in an email.

Fields says that a voice message to the entire school community was sent home Thursday evening to reassure parents that if they have not been contacted by the health unit, they have not been identified as close contacts and their children may continue attending school as usual. Follow-up letters will be sent home with students when they are dismissed from school Friday.
