The board said families will be contacted with information for virtual learning and the Lucan, Ont., school is expected to reopen on Nov. 8. Families requiring technological supports are asked to contact the school office.
The Middlesex-London Health Unit declared an outbreak at the school on Oct. 28. As of midday on Sunday, the health unit said there were 12 active cases associated with the school. The board is currently reporting a total of 15 cases.
In announcing the temporary closure, the TVDSB said the board administration “has determined that school operations and instruction pose a challenge with the current number of cases impacting several classes” and that the closure is meant to ensure “the safety of students and continuation of learning.”
This is the second TVDSB school to temporarily close this school year due to a COVID-19 outbreak.
