Frequently Asked Questions

I tested positive on a rapid self-test and negative on a PCR test. What should I do?

During the Omicron surge, if you have a positive rapid self-test result, you are considered a case and you should only book PCR test if you frequent a high-risk setting. Please follow the directions for the School Rapid Testing Program. However, if you received one positive rapid test result followed by a negative PCR test result, please follow the directions based on your situation:

  • If you have symptoms and you are not a close contact of a case: Stay at home until symptoms have improved for 24 hours and you have no fever.

  • If you do not have symptoms and you are a close contact: Continue to self-isolate based on your situation. View the Close Contacts Flowchart for instructions.

  • If you do not have symptoms and you are not a close contact of a case: There is a lower risk that you have COVID-19. You can return to daily activities and do not need to self-isolate, but you must follow public health measures and watch for symptoms of COVID-19 for 10 days. If you develop any symptoms of COVID-19, you must self-isolate and book a PCR test.

Parent Portal. Parents who created an account back in June can now login and view their child's eligibility, and if eligible, view their transportation schedule for first day of school here: Parent Portal Login.

Parents who have not already created an account (and wish to do so) can go in, create an account and add their child to their account at the above link as well. Parents will need the following information in order to add their child:

1. Student Number**

2. Student Date of Birth

3. '21-'22 School

4. '21-'22 Grade
