Self-Reported Case of Covid-19
On Thursday December 15, 2022, our school was informed of a self-reported positive COVID-19 test result or results. The individual or individuals may have interacted with:
Mr. Haalboom’s Class 8C.
This information is self-reported and has not been confirmed by Hamilton Public Health Services (HPHS). We are uncertain of the infectious period. To protect the privacy of any individual with a positive COVID-19 test result, we do not disclose their name.
Self-reporting positive COVID-19 test results is voluntary for those who choose to report, although it should be encouraged.
Under updated Ministry of Health guidance, HPHS will no longer be using cohort-based dismissals for positive cases. Students and staff in a school setting are generally no longer considered high-risk contacts requiring isolation. Students and staff who do not have symptoms, have not been advised to isolate, and who pass the COVID-19 School and Child Care Screening may continue to go to school.
Please follow the directions provided in the COVID-19 school screening and stay home if your child is sick For updates, protocols and other COVID-19 resources, visit the website, HWDSB COVID-19.
Please subscribe to the school’s website so you receive updates regarding voluntary self-reported cases.
