Dear Ecole Mountainview Staff, Parents/Guardians & Families,

I am writing to inform you of notifications received on April 14 and March 8, 2021 and December 24, 2020 respectively from the Northern Health authority regarding COVID-19 exposures at Ecole Mountainview as detailed in the following links.  This notice does not mean that you or your child have been exposed to COVID-19.  This early notification email is an alert that someone within the school community has tested positive for COVID-19 and if there was any increased risk to you or your child, you would be contacted directly by Northern Health.

Northern Health Potential COVID Exposure Email – Ecole Mountainview, Dec. 24, 2020

Our district is committed to transparency and we will continue to notify school communities of COVID-19 exposures at our schools as soon as public health directs us to do so.

  • This exposure alert is a general notice that someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 has been at school. The dates that this individual attended school are included in the notice.
  • This notice does not mean that you or your child have been exposed to COVID-19.

What happens next?

  • If Northern Health identifies anyone at the school that needs to self-monitor or self-isolate, they will be contacted directly by Northern Health. That contact often occurs within 24 to 48 hours, however, may be shorter or longer depending on the circumstances.
  • If you do not receive a phone call or letter, please continue to attend school and monitor for symptoms compatible with COVID-19 as per the school policy.

Again, please reference the Northern Health respective letter or email (above links) for additional information or visit Northern Health’s exposure website.  If you have any health questions or concerns, we encourage you to call 811.

Please remember to be cautious against relying on social media for accurate information pertaining to COVID-19.  Be assured that the safety and well-being of our students, staff and families is the school district’s primary concern.  If you have specific questions related to COVID-19, please do not hesitate to forward your questions to covid@cmsd.bc.ca, which comes directly to my email inbox.  If District staff cannot answer your questions, we will reach out to other organizations to secure the answer and respond to you.

I would like to thank the staff, students and families at Ecole Mountainview for their diligent support in adhering to the safety plans and protocols within the school.  Through your continued adherence to these protocols, I am confident we will maintain a safe place for staff and students.  Take care and stay safe.  Together We Are Better!

Sincerely yours,
Janet Meyer
Superintendent of Schools
