Confirmed Covid 19 case

​October 2, 2021 

Dear Hillsborough Elementary School Families:


This is to inform you that Public Health has confirmed a positive COVID-19 case at Hillsborough Elementary School. We understand you may feel anxious over the coming days. Public Health will work with the school, and you will receive an email with a letter from the school if your child has been in close contact with the confirmed case and will tell you if your child needs to self-isolate. If you do not receive an email, your child should closely self-monitor for symptoms this week and get tested should any develop. 

It is natural to want to know if your child may have been exposed to the virus. Public Health officials will inform those who are at risk of the next steps, but to protect the privacy of students and school personnel, other details including names, will not be released. 

Children and young people look to the adults in their lives to guide them on how to react to worrying and stressful events. Parents are encouraged to talk to their children about any anxieties and remind them to treat one another with kindness and respect, in person and on social media. If your child is showing any symptoms of COVID-19, you should: 

1. Register them online for a test by clicking “Get tested” on the GNB corona virus website (www.gnb.ca/coronavirus), or

2. Contact Tele-Care 811, or 3. Contact your primary care provider. 

Thank you for your cooperation and support. 


Pamela Wilson

Acting-Superintendent ASD-E​
