Dear Eastwood Families,
As you are aware, the Ministry of Education announced that school boards will begin offering asymptomatic targeted testing to students. Testing must be offered to at least 5% of the elementary and secondary schools within the school board each week and must provide this testing opportunity to at least 2% of their student population per week. In WRDSB, testing will be available for approximately six school communities a week. All testing is voluntary and free of cost.
Our school has been selected to participate in this voluntary asymptomatic testing opportunity on Saturday, March 20 and Sunday, March 21. Information on testing location, testing times are included in the attached letter. We have also included a Frequently Asked Questions document that we hope you will find helpful and answer any questions you may have.
Life Labs will be doing the testing on behalf of the WRDSB as per the process outlined by the Ministry of Education.
Participating in the testing process is completely voluntary. We encourage you to make the best choice for yourself and your family.
Thank you for your continued support as we work together to keep our schools and communities safe.
Principal, Eastwood Collegiate
