December 10, 2021

Dear ASD-W Parents and Guardians,

Due to rising case counts in the Fredericton and Upper River Valley Area (Health Zone 3), all kindergarten to grade 8 students in schools with a confirmed Covid-19 in the past 14 days must complete daily rapid testing every day until December 23, 2021. At that time, the situation will be reassessed, and further direction provided regarding the next steps.

In schools where Public Health has not confirmed a case in the past 14 days or in the next two weeks, this is a recommended measure; but not mandatory. Full details are provided in the attached letter from Dr. McKelvie, Regional Medical Officer of Health. Please take the time to read through it carefully.

Please note, schools will be distributing rapid test kits on Monday. Please watch for a communication from your school principal.

Thank you for your cooperation,

David McTimoney, Superintendent​
