As we are starting to see a few students with symptoms at times, it is important that we all understand the guidelines from the province. The document COVID-19 Response in K-12 Schools (p. 5), speaks to a scenario where a child shows symptoms of COVID-19. Among the list of possible responses, it notes;

■ If they have had COVID-19 symptoms and tested negative for COVID-19, they can return to school/ child care 24 hours after symptoms resolve. If they do not get tested, they should isolate for 10 days from symptom onset, and may return if symptoms have resolved at that time.

This is a guideline that we will need to follow at South Oaks. Please visit the link above to the document for further scenarios and details. The scenarios are very helpful to understand how the school will respond to symptoms, etc. Thanks for your support to keep our school safe.
