I’m writing to inform you that Peel Public Health is currently investigating a COVID-19 case at our school.
As a precaution, Peel Public Health has directed individuals from one of our classrooms to self-isolate at

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.
