The school goes from kindergarten to Grade 7.

If a student or teacher tests positive for COVID-19, health authorities will identify and notify close contacts, according to VCH.

“When we are unable to directly reach all close contacts in a timely manner, we use other means to contact students, parents and staff, which may include a letter and/or a public notification,” reads a statement on VCH’s school exposures webpage.

However, the health authority says that if you do not receive a phone call or letter from public health, your child should continue to attend school.
