Another Toronto elementary school closed due to coronavirus outbreak – .


Students at an eastern elementary school will switch to distance learning from Monday as a COVID-19 outbreak forced the school to temporarily close.

The Toronto District School Board (TDSB) on Sunday announced the dismissal of Wilkinson Junior Public School students from in-person learning and activities following a recommendation from Toronto Public Health (TPH).

“We recommend a dismissal of the whole school as a precautionary measure to protect staff, students and the community from further COVID-19 layoffs within the school,” TPH tweeted on Sunday afternoon .

“TPH will continue to work with our school community and have notified close contacts and asking them to stay home, monitor for symptoms and get tested. We will work closely with our school partners to determine when in-person learning resumes. “

On Thursday, TPH declared an outbreak at the school on Donlands Avenue, north of Danforth Avenue. According to the Toronto District School Board, Friday afternoon there were four active cases at the school, including three students.

Meanwhile, students at McMurrich Junior Public School, which closed on November 24, were allowed to return on Monday, the TDSB said.
