COVID-19 Advisory

COVID-19 Advisory

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 as soon as possible.

Notice of any closures of classes, cohorts or schools will be posted below.

There is a link to the COVID-19 Advisory on all school websites.

Please note: Public Health Sudbury & Districts investigates confirmed cases of COVID-19 and contacts Rainbow District School Board when action is required to limit the spread.

Public Health may direct that a class or cohort be asked to self-isolate.

There may also be impacts on school bus routes.

When action is required, the Board shares information with the school community.

Public Health does not notify the Board when there is no action required on the part of the school.

Sometimes students are not in class while infectious which means the classmates were not exposed to the virus.

For this reason, the letters to parents/guardians may not match the data on confirmed cases on the board website.

Data will be updated as it is sent to the school board from Public Health Sudbury & Districts.

Updated March 26, 2021

All students in Rainbow Schools are learning remotely as of March 15, 2021.
