The Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board has dismissed 57 students from Stella Maris Catholic Elementary School in Amherstburg after receiving notification of a confirmed case of COVID-19 there.

The board says 26 students were from one class, and the other 31 were from a bus cohort.

The board says they learned of the confirmed case today and informed the affected students this afternoon that they are not to return to school tomorrow.

“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 Wednesday 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.
