Schools Closed to Students

The Ministry of Education has announced that all schools will remain closed to students beginning April 19. Please do not send your child to school. Remote learning will continue during this closure.

COVID-19 Testing

Targeted School-Based Asymptomatic Testing

To continue to support our schools, students, staff and families, York Region District School Board is pleased to be able to facilitate, in partnership with York Region Public Health and the Ministry of Education, voluntary targeted COVID-19 testing. In addition to daily screening, masking and the other health and safety measures targeted testing in schools is an important layer of protection that helps to limit the spread of COVID-19. 

Symptomatic and Asymptomatic Testing

This is in addition to the testing being offered each week at the unoccupied George Bailey P.S. and George Street P.S. sites outlined in the communication from York Region Public Health

Targeted School-Based Asymptomatic Testing

Targeted testing will help ensure that our schools remain a safe environment for all to learn and work in. Families and school staff will be notified directly of testing available to their school. 

Testing results will be shared in accordance with Public Health protocols. For more information, please visit www.york.ca/safeatschool
