Urgent Update

COVID-19, COVID-19 Case Advisories

Dear Parents, Last night, we were alerted to a situation by Aramark, our food services provider. Two of their staff have tested positive for Covid-19. One employee whose last day at work was Friday, March 5th and a second whose last day was Wednesday, March 10th. These are two separate and isolated incidents through close contact outside of the school.

Aramark are very diligent in their food safety and Covid protocols, including their use of P.P.E.’s. Their employees deliver the food to the classrooms or serve the food on the 3rd floor behind plexiglass and P.P.E.’s. There is no direct or prolonged contact with the student population. Yet out of abundance of caution, and until we get direction from Toronto Public Health, Bayview Glen Lower School will learn online on Monday, March 15th. Our Preschool will be closed. This does not affect students on the Moatfield Campus, including siblings of Lower School students.

Further information will be shared with you tomorrow once Toronto Public Health advises us on next steps. They will have more detailed knowledge of these cases. Until then, the entire Lower School and Preschool, including the kitchen will be deep cleaned to ensure the highest health and safety measures have been met in preparation for the students return.

Thank you once again for all your support.
