A school in Toronto’s east end is moving to remote learning due to a COVID-19 investigation.

Toronto Public Health (TPH) said on Twitter that it recommended that students at Grenoble Public School, located near Don Mills Road and Eglinton Avenue, be temporarily dismissed from in-person classes and activities starting Tuesday.

“We are recommending a whole school dismissal as a precautionary measure to protect staff, students and the community from further COVID-19 transmission within the school,” TPH said.
