Students at École Mallaig School school are working from home this week as the school deals with a COVID-19 outbreak.
The school is listed on the online provincial school status map as being in “outbreak” status, with 10 plus cases related to the school confirmed.
On Saturday afternoon St. Paul Education sent out a letter to parents saying students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 would work from home beginning on Monday. Teachers are said to be in contact with parents on how the schedules will look like for online learning.
