Dear St. Jean de Brébeuf Catholic Secondary School community,

This letter is to inform you that a student at St. Jean de Brébeuf Catholic Secondary School has tested positive for COVID-19.

The student was last in the school on Friday, December 11, 2020. The positive test result was confirmed by Hamilton Public Health Services (HPHS) late today. Out of respect for the privacy of the individual, personal health information and identifiers will not be released.

Hamilton Public Health Services has indicated that there are no school-related close contacts with this individual and therefore no risk to the school.

The health, safety and well-being of our students and staff is always a priority concern for our school and school board but is especially important during a global pandemic. The school will continue to work closely with HPHS to ensure all health and safety measures are in place to prevent transmission to other students and individuals in the school community. Students and staff should continue to attend school, unless directed otherwise by HPHS, and to screen daily for COVID-19 symptoms on the provincial COVID-19 school screening website.

Please follow the directions provided in the COVID-19 school screening. If your child(ren) develops COVID-19 symptoms, they must stay home from school and should get a COVID-19 test. To book a COVID-19 test, please go to www.HamiltonCovidTest.ca. Please inform the school of any absences and symptoms your child(ren) is/are experiencing.

If you have any questions about COVID-19, please consult the Hamilton Public Health COVID-19 School Health program Hotline at 905-974-9848 (option 5) or covidschoolteam@hamilton.ca.

In closing, we wish to assure you of our ongoing commitment to the health and safety of our students and staff and will notify you of any new developments.

Sincerely,

Mr. P. Di Ianni
Principal
