Please remain at home if you are displaying flu or COVID-19 symptoms and follow the current recommendations for staying away from work or school if displaying symptoms. We request that parents do not send their child to school if they feel ill. Please let us know they are absent due to an illness so we can keep track of any potential outbreaks which are considered 10% or more of the student population. Read this letter dated November 2023 from the Interim Chief and Senior Medical Officers of Health in relation to the rise in influenza cases seen in school recently.  If your child tests positive for COVID-19 please read the advice for isolation:
