Castries Comprehensive Secondary School (CCSS) has suspended all classes until further notice, while a student is tested for COVID-19.
School Principal, Marva Daniel, made the announcement Wednesday in a letter to parents and guardians.
She said there will be no school for all students until further notice.
In the letter Daniel noted that the school was informed of a situation regarding a Form 3 student and his family.
Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Sharon Belmar-George, had announced Wednesday afternoon that a secondary school student who is the son of a couple diagnosed with COVID-19, “shall be assessed and tested for COVID-19 and placed in quarantine.”
“The class mates and teachers shall also be assessed and will be kept in home quarantine until his test results are received. Contact tracing has commenced for the possible contacts of these 2 new cases,” Belmar-George disclosed.
In her letter to parents and guardians, CCSS Principal Marva Daniel informed them that their son, daughter or ward may have been exposed to a student who is a contact of a confirmed case of COVID-19.
“As a precautionary measure, your child/ward is to remain at home until we receive the test results of the student in question,” the CCSS Principal wrote.
She also encouraged everyone to continue to adhere to COVID-19 protocols.
