The local district has notified families of Aldergrove Community Secondary in a letter sent Monday evening about a test-positive person at the school.
“If you are receiving this letter, it means your child may have been at the school during this time; however, the exposure did not take place in their cohort or class(es),” said Gord Stewart, superintendent of Langley schools.
The test positive individual was at the Aldergrove secondary school (26850 29 Ave.) on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1, according to Fraser Health.
The health authority said the COVID-positive person has been isolated and there is no chance of direct exposure at this time.
Public Health is investigating the exposure at the school and should any staff or student need to isolate or self-monitor for signs of COVID-19 will be contacted directly, they said.
“This letter does not mean Public Health will be contacting you,” according to the letter. “Public Health will only contact you if you or your child was directly exposed to COVID-19.”
Our District has sent home a COVID-19 Early Notification letter to the Aldergrove Community Secondary School community today. Thank you to staff, @Fraserhealth, and families for your support.
