The Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board has dismissed 24 students from St. John the Baptist Catholic Elementary School in Belle River after receiving notification of a confirmed case of COVID 19 there.

The board says they learned of this confirmed case Wednesday and dismissed the affected students this afternoon.

“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.

Fields says a voice message was sent to the school community Wednesday 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.
