The information below outlines the process Northern Health follows when a school exposure is reported:  

Northern Health COVID-19 school notification process:

If a student or teacher receives a confirmed positive COVID-19 test result, Public Health follows a rigorous protocol:

  • Contact tracing is initiated by Public Health to determine how the individual was infected and who they were in close contact with.
  • Public Health will  identify and notify close contacts who may be at an increased risk, and advise them to self-isolate and monitor for symptoms for 14 days.
  • Only Public Health can determine who is a close contact. Learning groups, friends or other connections may not be determined to be a close contact.
  • Public Health staff works closely with the school and school district throughout the case and contact management process to maintain close communication with the school community.

If your child’s school receives a notification of exposure:

A notification does not mean your child has been exposed to COVID-19.

If you do not receive a phone call or letter from Public Health, your child should continue to attend school. You can monitor your child for COVID-19 symptoms daily using the BC COVID-19 Health Assessment Tool.

For more information and resources regarding COVID-19, visit the Coronavirus Information (COVID-19) page or B.C.'s Back to School Plan

If your child’s school has been notified of an exposure, no action is required unless you are contacted by Public Health or are otherwise directed by school officials.

Mr. Schilds' students did a phenomenal job with our annual We Scare Hunger food drive. They collected over 2 tons of food! Thank you very much to everyone who supported this fantastic effort!

We have organized some food hampers available to our community members. Please let the school know if you would like one put together; give us a call 250-782-5206 or email Mrs Anderson at sanderson@sd59.bc.ca and we will get a hamper to you.
