The Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board has dismissed 20 students from St. John de Brebeuf Catholic Elementary School in Kingsville after receiving notification of a confirmed case of COVID-19 there.

The board says the 20 students were from one cohort.

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

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

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

“We want to assure parents that we are cooperating with the health unit and doing everything we can to make sure that we continue to provide a safe and healthy learning environment for their children,” Fields said.
