KPDSB COVID-19 Advisories for the 2020-2021 school year

As per the requirements of the Ministry of Education, the COVID-19 Advisory page is available on our Board website as well as all KPDSB school websites.  

We will post information on this page if there is a confirmed case of COVID-19 that involves a student or a staff member in a school setting.  If public health advises that a class, cohort or school should be closed for a period of time, parents/guardians, students and staff will be notified immediately.  

Please note - In the interests of privacy, information provided to school communities will not identify the student or staff member that has received a positive COVID-19 test.

September 18, 2020 - Notification of COVID-19 Exposure Impacting Golden Learning Centre

We have received notification of COVID-19 exposure impacting Golden Learning Centre in Balmertown and are working closely with Northwestern Health Unit (NWHU) on next steps. The positive case is being followed up with by Northwestern Health Unit and all contacts of the case are being called and given instructions by public health. We are working with NWHU to make sure all potential risks are minimized. Due to our COVID-19 prevention strategies in place, those staff and students not contacted by public health are deemed to be at no additional risk and can continue to attend school as usual.

For reasons of privacy, we will minimize sharing personal information about any case and encourage others to avoid identifying individuals.

All students and staff should use the Government of Ontario’s school screening tool daily before attending school.

There are no other advisories at this time.
