COVID-19 Information - April 23, 2021

April 23, 2021

​​On April 23, Horizon School Division was made aware of an additional COVID-19 diagnosis at LeRoy School.

Families at the school are being informed, and we are working closely with our excellent partners in Public Health to assist in the contact tracing process.

Health has informed us that the cases at LeRoy School involve Variants of Concern (VOC), and the situation at the school has been deemed an outbreak.

UPDATE: Out of an abundance of caution and care, students at LeRoy School will continue Learning from Home until Monday, May 17.

Further details cannot be provided, to maintain the privacy of the individuals involved.

We all have a shared responsibility to limit the spread of COVID-19. We thank Horizon's staff, students, and families for all their efforts to help mitigate the risks during this pandemic. We continue to require students and staff to stay home if they are experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19. Horizon's detailed Re-Entering Horizon Plan can be found on horizonsd.ca, along with our new Administrative Procedure regarding Illness in Care, which details the process to be followed when a child experiences symptoms or illness while at school.
