Dear Parents and Guardians of Leo Hayes High School,

We have been informed of a positive Covid-19 case at Leo Hayes High School. We are working with Public Health officials to identify any students and school personnel who may have been in contact with the case.

Public Health Officials or your school will contact you if your child has been:

  1. Identified as a close contact with the confirmed case. In this instance, your child will be asked to self-isolate for 14 days. Further instructions on isolation may be given by Public Health, or;
  2. Potentially exposed to the case due to a common environment exposure. An example of this would be using the same classroom. In this instance, your child will be asked to self-isolate until 11:59 p.m. on Friday, June 11, and self-monitor to allow for contact tracing and risk assessment to be done. 

If you are not contacted by Public Health (through a call or a message from your school), your child does not need to self-isolate and may continue with regular activities, including attending school.

At this time, in-person learning will continue tomorrow as per the regular schedule.

It is natural to want to know if your child may have been exposed to the virus 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 coronavirus website ( OR
  2. Contact Tele-Care 811.

The 811 operators will evaluate your child before sending them for testing. If you have questions that are health-related, please write to

Thank you for your continued support as we respond to the pandemic.


David McTimoney, Superintendent
