Update: Enteric Symptoms at Monck

posted in: Home Page News | 0

Dear Parents/ Guardians,
Thank you for your understanding and care as we have been experiencing a higher than usual incidence of enteric symptoms (i.e. vomiting) within the school. In working with the Health Unit, it has been noted that this is most likely associated with the Norovirus. 

Please know, Monck was thoroughly disinfected over the weekend and continues to be disinfected nightly. At school, we continue to educate and encourage the use of the needed hygiene practices to reduce the spread of germs.

As a result, the number of students with symptoms at the school has decreased. We continue to advise families to keep ill children at home to assist us in stopping the spread of this virus. 

Sincerely, 

Monck Administration Team
