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.

Public Health is treating every single case of COVID-19 as a potential variant of concern before a variant is identified and therefore our public communication will indicate only that a positive case has been identified. For all cases of COVID-19, Public Health is conducting enhanced case and contact management. This enhanced process includes using a lower threshold to identify who is considered to have had a high-risk exposure, recommending enhanced testing and advising contacts and their household members to continue to stay at home except for essential reasons.

Confirmed Cases in Schools

The information here will be updated upon notification of confirmed cases by Region of Waterloo Public Health.

Any confirmed cases that are reported after 5pm Monday to Thursday will be posted the following day by noon. Any confirmed cases that are reported after 5pm on Friday will be posted the following Monday by noon.
