Updates re: Illness and Returning to School

posted in: Home Page News | 0

Dear JDH Families with students learning in our school building

 As part of our effort to keep our school communities safe and prevent the spread of COVID-19, a new “Attestation for Student Return to School Following an Illness” form has been developed in consultation with the local Health Units.

If your child is absent from school due to an illness that includes common COVID-19 symptoms, parents/guardians will be sent an attestation form from the school. Please complete the form prior to sending your child back to school. Return to school can only occur when you have followed the necessary local health unit protocols for your child to be back at school. 

Here is JDH’s Attestation Form.

Here is a flowchart developed by the Health Units to help with guidance around when to keep your child home ill and when they can return following an illness.

If you have any questions, please contact the office.

Please check the JDH and TLDSB websites regularly. Information related to COVID-19 pandemic and the return to school may be found at tldsb.ca.
