Update Dec. 20, 2021: KFL&A Public Health has confirmed one positive case of COVID-19 in a student at Lancaster Drive Public School on Dec. 20. This case was already self-isolating and poses no risk to school community.

One staff member on Dec. 14. This case posed no risk to the school community.

Upon further investigation, it has been determined that a previous student case identified on Dec. 16 did not result in exposure to any class cohorts. This cohort has been released from isolation and testing requirements.

KFL&A Public Health works closely with schools to ensure that necessary steps are taken to prevent further spread of the virus both in the school and the community.

Families are encouraged to continue to monitor and screen students daily for symptoms of COVID-19 as most cases of COVID-19 are acquired in the home setting. Do not send students to school if they are sick or symptomatic. 

Please continue to follow all public health guidelines which include maintaining physical distance, wearing face coverings, and cleaning your hands frequently.
