Communicating with WRDSB families, students and staff is a guiding principle of our Return to School plans, and this includes keeping you informed about any confirmed cases of COVID-19 in our schools. In accordance with guidance from the Ministry of Education, this page will be updated on an ongoing basis with information regarding confirmed cases of COVID-19 involving a student or staff member in a school setting.

In the interests of privacy, the information provided here will not identify the students or staff member that has received a positive COVID-19 test. In the event that Public Health advises the WRDSB that a class, cohort or school should be closed for a period of time, parents, students and staff will be notified immediately. If there is a case at your school and you are not contacted by Region of Waterloo Public Health, your child is not considered a high-risk contact.

Refer here for province-wide information about coronavirus (COVID-19) cases in Ontario schools and child care centres.
