All WCDSB staff and students continue to be required to Self Screen before arriving at school (or immediately upon arrival).  Confirmation of screening continues to be required for all staff and our secondary students. The change is that  the new provincial direction requires that staff, students and children with any new or worsening symptom of COVID-19, as indicated in the school and child care screening tool, even those with only one symptom, must stay home 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 symptom onset and they are feeling better.
The student self-screener is found here:  COVID-19 school and child care screening.
If your child is at school and becomes ill, parents/guardians will be contacted to pick up their child along with all siblings. Please be sure to have plans in place (Plan A and Plan B) for student pick up during school hours.
Thank you in advance for your assistance, as we continue to work together in support of our St. Paul school community.
