Toronto Elementary School closed for personal learning due to COVID-19 outbreak

TORONTO – Elementary school students in the city’s Wychwood neighborhood have been fired from personal learning and activities due to a COVID-19 outbreak.

The Toronto District School Board (TDSB) announced Sunday that McMurrich Junior Public School will be temporarily closed from Monday following a recommendation from Toronto Public Health (TPH).

All students will move to distance learning during the closure, TDSB said.

“We recommend an entire school layoff as a precautionary measure to protect staff, students and the community from further COVID-19 transfer within the school,” TPH said in a tweet.

“TPH will continue to work with our school community and have notified close contacts and ask them to stay home, monitor for symptoms and be tested. We will work closely with our school partners to determine when personal learning will resume.”

According to the TDSB COVID-19 dashboard, there are three active student cases at the school, located on Winona Drive, south of St. Louis. Clair Avenue West.

Meanwhile, Grenoble Public School remains closed for personal learning. Flemingdon Park Elementary School has 16 active cases among students, according to TDSB.

As of Friday, there are 23 schools in the city dealing with a COVID-19 outbreak.
