TLDSB continues to manage COVID-19 situation during sixth wave

DAN CEARNS, The Standard

KAWARTHA LAKES: As Ontario continues to navigate the sixth wave of COVID-19 spread, the Trillium Lakelands District School Board (TLDSB) has heard some concerns from parents.

“We’re in the middle of the sixth wave, and we still have [COVID-19] amongst us. It’s still creating some concern that we deal with on a regular basis,” Director of Education Wes Hahn said, during a board meeting, on Tuesday, April 12th.

However, he noted their schools have done quite well at limiting the spread of the virus.

“We haven’t had a lot of issues where we’ve had to consider moving classes online. I’d say we’ve had maybe five or six situations where we had to do that. We’re cautious about that. We know, if we see sudden spikes in schools, as I described before, or in classrooms, we’re going to be cautious and move that class online,” Director Hahn explained.

The education director said, the board continues to monitor the situation “on a day-to-day basis,” but right now, they’re “not dealing with widespread” situations where classes need to be interrupted or shifted to virtual means.

Director Hahn credited superintendents for helping to manage the virus situation, and pointed out parents and families have had a part to play in their low virus transmission numbers.

“We do get feedback, kids are staying home if they are ill. That does make a difference because it controls the spread, and it’s a great way of managing that situation.”
