Dear St. Bernadette Families,

I wish to provide an important reminder that Public Health requires parents to screen their children before coming to school.  If your child has any COVID symptom they and their siblings must stay home to isolate until,

  • They receive a negative COVID-19 test result.
  • They receive an alternative diagnosis by a health care professional, or
  • It has been 10 days since their symptoms began and they are feeling better.

If a family member has any COVID symptoms students must stay home until the member has had a negative test result or they have isolated for 14 days.

If a student or family member has tested positive, all family members and students must quarantine and isolate for 14 days.

 

IMPORTANT:   If your child is away from school due to any COVID concerns you must call the school to inform us that they have received a negative test or the symptomatic person in the house has tested negative for COVID, before they can return to school.

Thank you, Together we will keep our students and staff safe.
