Government of Ontario Announces Return to Remote Learning Only Following Spring Break on April 19th
Dogs on School Property
Please note, dogs are not permitted on the school property .  There are children and/or staff, who may have a fear of dogs and who may also have allergies to animal hair.  There is also a possibility of a child or staff member being scratched or bitten by a dog (perhaps excited by all the children they may see at the end of a school day).  We have also, unfortunately, had dog droppings found on our school property. In order to prevent a potential concern for our students, please do not bring your dog onto school property during school hours.  Please note, this does not apply to Certified Guide Dogs, Service Dogs, or Service Animals for Students. We thank you for your cooperation in helping to keep our school community safe for all students, staff, and parents.

Mr. Michael Huggard

This letter is to let you know of a high-risk exposure case of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) in our school community. We have been working with the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit (WECHU) by providing lists of students and staff who may have been in contact with the individual. If you have not been contacted, you or your child (ren) have not been identified as close contacts.  The WECHU is contacting any individuals (students and staff) who have an identified high-risk exposure with the confirmed case, and will give directions to follow.

Please continue to monitor yourself or your child for symptoms of COVID-19 each morning. If you or your child is ill, please remain at home and call your health care provider for further direction. People with COVID-19 may have little to no symptoms; some symptoms are similar to the common cold or flu.  Symptoms range from mild to severe. The most common symptoms include:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Change in smell or taste

COVID-19 spreads from close contact with the respiratory droplets of a person infected with the virus. Respiratory droplets can be released into the air by coughing, sneezing, talking, and normal breathing. It is possible for a person to get the COVID-19 by touching surfaces that have the virus on it and then touching their mouth, nose, or eyes.

To protect against COVID-19:

  • Wash hands more often with soap and water or use an alcohol based hand sanitizer
  • Cover your cough and/or sneeze with a tissue or sleeve
  • Maintain 2 metres physical distancing between yourself and others
  • Wear a mask or face coverings
  • Stay home when you are sick

Please visit our school’s webpage for up-to-date information about COVID-19 cases. Additionally, please visit the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit’s page at wechu.org/cv if you are looking for more information.
