Hello Parents and Guardians,

Today we were informed of a positive Covid-19 case at Montgomery Street School. Your principal has already sent Public Health letters to all those identified as close contacts. If you have not been contacted, you may continue with your regular activities.

Please note that tomorrow, December 3, will be a professional learning day, which means there will be no school for students. Therefore, students should plan to return to school next Monday, December 6, unless they are required to self-isolate.

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, details, such as 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.

Please remember, if your child is showing any symptoms of Covid-19, you should:

Register them online for a test by clicking “Get tested” on the GNB coronavirus website ( OR

Contact Tele-Care 811. The 811 operators will evaluate your child before sending them for testing.

If you have health-related questions, please write to

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