Re: COVID-19 ACTIVITY AT WOODSTOCK HIGH SCHOOL
This is to
inform you that there has been more than one positive COVID-19 case in our
school. The Anglophone West School District and the school are working with
Public Health officials to identify any students and school personnel who may
have been in contact with the cases.
Due to the high-level activity in the area, Public
Health is requiring that all students and staff from our school self-isolate Saturday
January 9th and Sunday January 10th. This means staying
home, not receiving visitors, and not leaving your property. You will find attached information on self-isolation.
Also note that all school activities for this weekend are being cancelled. These
measures will allow for Public Health to do the contact tracing.
district will be contacting you again before the end of the weekend to give you
an update on the situation.
you may feel anxious over the coming days. Public
Health officials will contact you if your child has been in close contact with
the confirmed case and will tell you if your child needs to continue to self-isolate.
Due to the volume of calls that are required, the follow up will take most of
the weekend. Please be patient and await
your call. Your cooperation in this
matter is essential.
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.
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
helping keep our school, community, and province safe.
