Dear Williams Parkway Sr PS staff and families,
I’m writing to inform you that Peel Public Health is currently investigating a COVID-19 exposure at our
school. One individual who was recently at school has tested positive for COVID-19.
As a precaution, Peel Public Health has directed individuals from one of our classrooms to self-isolate
at home. The classroom will be closed until the individuals have completed their self-isolation period.
Impacted staff and students have already been contacted with further direction and will be taught
remotely until the end of their self-isolation period.
Staff and students who have not been contacted by Peel Public Health should continue to attend
school as usual. You do not need to get tested unless you are symptomatic or asked to do so by Peel
Our building is currently safe and will remain open for students and staff. The school undergoes a
thorough cleaning and sanitizing daily as part of our enhanced cleaning protocol, and an additional
cleaning has taken place. Our physical distancing and mask rules are also designed to help prevent
spread and lower risk. Peel Public Health will let us know if any other measures need to be taken to
reduce the risk of transmission.
The identity of the persons are protected under privacy legislation and cannot be shared. I know this
may frustrate you, but you would want this privacy if it was someone in your family. Everyone
deserves the same protection.
Keeping you informed is part of our commitment to you. You can find information about that
commitment on the Peel board website. Please visit Peel Public Health’s website for information on
how they are working with the Peel board to help keep staff and students safe at school.
I know that news of COVID-19 can create feelings of anxiousness, so I wanted to make sure you had
this information as soon as possible to help ease concerns.
Now more than ever, we must take care of ourselves and each other. We can do this by following the
advice of public health agencies and government officials. Please review their advice on how you can
protect yourself and others from COVID-19.
