Additionally, Chatham-Kent Public Health notified the LKDSB on October 4, 2021 that there is a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the school community. Please note: The school remains open.
Chatham-Kent Public Health is working closely with the school community and is contacting any individuals (students and staff) who may have been in potential contact with the virus. Chatham-Kent Public Health will only notify close contacts of confirmed cases. If you have not been notified (either by letter, email or telephone call from Public Health), your child has not been in close contact with the confirmed case.
Families are encouraged to remain vigilant and follow the health and safety protocols in place to mitigate the transmission of COVID-19, including completing and following the directions of the daily school screening assessment tool before your child attends school. Together, we will continue to support a safe operation of schools.
