Student Absence and Illness

Please communicate your child's absence, leaving school early or arriving late directly to
general.wbo@eips.ca or click the STUDENT ATTENDANCE link on the homepage of the school website.

Students with core symptoms—fever, cough, shortness of breath, loss of smell or taste—must isolate for 10 days, or until receiving a negative COVID-19 test result and symptoms resolve.

Students with just ONE secondary symptom—chills, sore throat, runny nose, fatigue, nausea, diarrhea, aches, headache, pink-eye—must stay home and monitor symptoms for 24 hours. If symptoms improve, they can return to school. If symptoms worsen, they must stay home until resolved. Students with TWO or more secondary symptoms must stay home until resolved. For secondary symptoms—chills; painful swallowing; nasal congestion; fatigue; feeling unwell; nausea; diarrhea; loss of smell, taste or appetite; aches; headache; pink-eye—the person must stay home until symptoms resolve.
