Parents, students and staff have an understandable interest in knowing when a COVID-19 positive case has been identified in their school.
Rainbow District School Board will post information if there is a confirmed case of COVID-19 that involves a student or a staff member in a school setting.
If individuals are identified as close contact of a case in a school setting, Public Health will contact them/their parent or guardian directly and provide direction.
In the interests of privacy, information provided to school communities will not identify the student or staff member that has received a positive COVID-19 test.
If public health advises that a class, cohort or a school should be closed for a period of time, parents/guardians, students and staff will be notified immediately.
Notice of any closures of classes, cohorts or schools will be posted on our website rainbowschools.ca.
There is a link to the COVID-19 Advisory section on all school websites.
