A letter sent out to parents and caregivers Tuesday evening says that students in several grades at John Pritchard School will begin learning from home Wednesday.

The province identified one case of COVID-19 from the school on Sunday, and then another four confirmed cases on Tuesday.

"John Pritchard school continues to work closely with public health officials and is following their recommendations," the letter says.

Students in grades 6, 7, and 8, as well as the split class of 4/5 will begin to learn remotely.

The school says that public health expects that remote learning will go for two weeks, "but this may be lengthened or shortened as the investigation continues."

The school says that if parents and guardians have not been contacted by public health officials, and if their children are not in any of the groups listed, then the child has not been identified as being exposed to COVID-19.

Parents and guardians are reminded to monitor their children for symptoms and get tested as soon as symptoms appear.
