Check your Child for COVID-19 Symptoms Every Day!

CHECK YOUR CHILD FOR COVID-19 SYMPTOMS EVERY DAY!
Posted on 11/20/2020

Important Health and COVID-19 Safety Information

Children must not attend school with any symptoms of illness, even if their symptoms are mild.

EVERYDAY, you must complete the on-line COVID screening and follow the instructions from Ottawa Public Health. 

COVID SCREENING TOOL 

You must keep your child home from school and notify the school that your child is ill with symptoms that are consistent with COVID-19.   PHONE: 613-733-0205. It is recommend that your child goes to a COVID-19 assessment centre or care clinic to get tested as soon as possible.

Your child and household contacts (for example siblings, parents/guardians) are required to self-isolate and stay at home while awaiting test results.

If the test is negative (shows your child does not have COVID-19) your child may return to school 24 hours after symptoms have resolved. (48 hours for vomitting or diarrhea.)

 If the test result is positive, your child and their siblings should not attend school.  Follow the instructions from Ottawa Public Health.  For more information contact Ottawa Public Health at 613-580-6744 or refer to the COVID-19 Assessment Centre and Care Clinics Webpage.

If your child arrives with symptoms consistent with COVID-19, or becomes ill during the school day, your child will be separated from other children and supervised by a staff member. You will be contacted and asked to pick up the child immediately. Siblings or other household members that also attend the school are required to go home and self-isolate.  

These measures are necessary to reduce the spread of COVID-19 within our school and our community. 

Thank you for your cooperation!
