School and Preschool Closed Thursday, April 21 and Friday, April 22

Wagmatcookewey School Notice!

Thursday, April 21, 2016


The Public Health Nurse and myself met again today to discuss the high student absentee rate at Wagmatcookewey School in the past week.  Today, 77 students were absent from school.  The majority of absences are due to stomach and flu viruses.  From this meeting, we made a decision to close the school and the preschool building on Thursday, April 21 and Friday, April 22 for all children and students.   The reason for the closure is to give students and staff an opportunity to recover from these viruses.  Staff will be required to report to work. 


Later today, on our school website and on our Facebook page, in consultation with Public Health Nurse Ann MacDonald and Public Health Environment Officer, Jason Catoul, we will be posting tips on the importance of disinfecting at home to reduce the spread of illness between family members. 


Classes and preschool programs will resume on Monday, April 25, 2016. 


If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at the school 902 295 3491 or 902 295 3009 or 902 295 1757.
