COVID-19 Information and Updates
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the sensitive nature of personal health information, and our commitment to ensuring the accuracy of any COVID-19 related communication and/ or updates ALCDSB will continue to contact families primarily through school messenger, and the administration teams within each school. Confirmed positive cases of COVID-19 within ALCDSB schools will continue to be posted to this webpage. We ask all families to please continue following all direction and guidelines from Public Health.
Youth age 12 years and over are now eligible to receive COVID-19 vaccination in Ontario. This is an exciting time, as offering vaccination to youth who are eligible will help keep students, staff, schools, and the entire community as safe as possible.
Infection prevention protocols, paired with the ongoing vigilance and dedication of all staff, have helped keep the risk of COVID-19 spread within the school setting low in our region. Ensuring school staff and eligible students have the opportunity to get vaccinated, will add to current measures to prevent spread of COVID-19.
