The Catholic School board has dismissed two cohorts of students from Holy Names Catholic High School after receiving notification of a confirmed case of COVID-19 there.

The board says that they learned of the confirmed case this morning and have notified the affected students that they are not to attend school tomorrow. They say a nurse from the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit was at the school this morning to provide information and support to students and their parents as they were being dismissed.

“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 this afternoon 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. He says follow-up letters will be sent home with students when they are dismissed from school tomorrow.

The Catholic Board is advising parents to continue to monitor their children for symptoms of COVID-19 each morning and to keep them at home and call their healthcare provider for further direction if they are ill.
