As some of you may be aware, there has been a strong media focus on a novel coronavirus, which is reported to have originated in Wuhan, China. Some families have asked questions about how our schools and our region are dealing with these reports.
Our school board has a close working relationship with York Region Community Health Services and takes advice regarding public health matters from them. Attached you will find a fact sheet released by Community Health Services for your information. Community and Health Services have established a website where you can find the attached and updated information as it becomes available: York.ca/coronavirus.
Please be assured student and staff safety is our priority and we will continue to provide you with information as requested by Community and Health Services. At this time, there is no cause for concern or need to take additional measures, however, we appreciate your support in reinforcing the importance of regular hand washing and staying home if feeling unwell.
