Changes to the COVID-19 Screening Tool for Children in School

The easiest way to determine if your child should stay home is by verifying any symptoms and completing this online screening tool: 

You may have heard in the news that the Government of Ontario has made changes to their COVID-19 school screening tool. The changes put symptoms in two different categories and still require your child to stay home if they are sick. You can review this FAQ from the Ministry of Health that we have posted on our website with more information.

 Please complete this screening every morning to determine if your child should be going to school. This is an important step in ensuring that all of us continue to stay safe.
