Dear Parents and Guardians:


This is to inform you that there is a possible COVID-19 exposure in our school. We are working with Public Health officials to identify the individuals who may come into contact with the virus.  

We understand you may feel anxious over the coming days. Public Health officials will contact you if your child has been in close contact with the virus. Unless Public Health officials contact you, your child can continue to attend school.     

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.

Because of the presence of the variant in our region, Public Health is asking that the entire school community monitor for symptoms. If your child is showing one or more symptoms, please have them isolated and get registered for a test by:

  1. Registering online for a test by clicking “Get tested” on the GNB coronavirus website Coronavirus Exposure (, or
  2. Contacting Tele-Care 811.

Thank you for helping keep our school, community, and province safe.


David McTimoney, Superintendent​
