Asymptomatic COVID-19 testing available for students and families on March 6 and March 11


March 3, 2021


Dear HDSB parents/guardians at Georgetown District High School, Acton District High School, Centennial, Ethel Gardiner, George Kennedy, Glen Williams, Harrison, Joseph Gibbons, Limehouse, Park, Pineview, Silver Creek, Stewarttown, Brookville, McKenzie-Smith Bennett, and Robert Little public schools,


We are writing to share further information on the asymptomatic testing being provided for Ontario schools. As a school board we are required to offer this testing at five schools per week. The testing will be offered at Georgetown District High School to students and families in the following schools in Halton Hills: Georgetown District High School, Acton District High School, Centennial, Ethel Gardiner, George Kennedy, Glen Williams, Harrison, Joseph Gibbons, Limehouse, Park, Pineview, Silver Creek, Stewarttown, Brookville, McKenzie-Smith Bennett, and Robert Little public schools.


The below information is provided on behalf of LifeLabs, the third-party provider approved by the Ministry of Education to provide asymptomatic testing for Halton families.


LifeLabs, Canada’s largest medical laboratory, has partnered with the Ministry of Education to provide free asymptomatic COVID-19 testing for all students and their family members, teachers, and staff at these Halton Hills schools.


COVID-19 testing is voluntary and only for asymptomatic individuals (those who are not experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms).


If you are interested in participating, testing will be available on the following dates at Georgetown District High School (70 Guelph St, Georgetown)

  • Saturday, March 6 from 9:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.

  • Thursday, March 11 from 3:30 - 8 p.m.


Asymptomatic testing is an important layer of protection that helps to track and prevent the spread of COVID-19. Increased testing may also help to reduce stress and anxiety related to the virus by identifying cases early and avoiding outbreaks.


Drop in when you can or register ahead of time

Participants are able to walk-in to the location during the allocated testing time. Or, if you would like to register ahead of time, please sign up at my.thrive.health using this unique registration code:


  • Registration code: Halton-hubsite3


Our Goal = less discomfort!

The test process is very simple and safe and the collection site will be staffed by professionals who will be following a multitude of safety parameters. LifeLabs uses a swab similar to a Q-tip that is inserted into the front part of the nostril and rotated for fifteen seconds (per nostril). After the sample is collected, the test results will then be available within 24-48 hours at https://covid19results.ehealthontario.ca:4443/agree.


Thank you for helping us keep the Halton Hills school community safe and healthy so that we can avoid any further disruption from the COVID-19 virus!

SCHOOL UPDATE-FEB 18, 2021

Feb. 18, 2021


COVID-19 Update for HDSB Families

Dear HDSB families,

We are writing to inform you that the Ontario Government has changed some COVID-19 health and safety guidelines for schools due to the presence of the new COVID-19 variant of concern in the province.

Changes to COVID-19 school and child care screening tool

Effective today, the Government of Ontario COVID-19 school and child care screening online tool has been updated to direct students and staff to stay home if they report any new or worsening symptom of COVID-19 (even those with only one symptom).

As before, students and staff with a COVID-19 symptom(s) must remain home until:

  • They receive a negative COVID-19 test result;

  • They receive an alternative diagnosis by a health care professional; or

  • It has been 10 days since the symptom occurred and they are feeling better.

Students must now self-isolate if any member of their household (including siblings) has symptoms of COVID-19.

Parents/guardians (and students 18+) must continue to complete the online COVID-19 school screening tool for each child prior to them attending school each day. Any student who does not pass the school screening tool should remain home and follow the direction provided through the online screening tool. All in-person secondary school students and school-based staff must continue to provide daily confirmation that they have completed the online screening tool before attending work/school.

Asymptomatic Testing for Students

As you may have heard, Asymptomatic testing is being provided for Ontario schools in the upcoming weeks. More information will be provided next week, including the process for booking an appointment. At this time, we have the following information to share:

  • Asymptomatic testing of COVID-19 will be available to students in HDSB schools and child care centres in Halton region

  • Testing is voluntary and parent/guardian consent must be provided during the registration process

  • Testing will be provided by a third-party vendor approved by the Ministry of Education

  • Testing will be offered in approximately five HDSB schools per week as identified in areas with high numbers of confirmed cases

Further Information

Please view our COVID-19 webpage. We will continue to keep you informed through the HDSB website, SchoolMessenger emails and social media (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram).


The Ontario school Spring Break will be postponed until April 12 - 16, 2021, as announced by the Government of Ontario yesterday. Spring Break was originally scheduled to occur between March 15 - 19.

In the announcement, Minister of Education Stephen Lecce indicates this decision was made based on advice from Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health and public health officials.

PLEASE ENSURE YOU COMPLETE THE DAILY COVID SCREENING TOOL FOR YOUR CHILD BEFORE SENDING THEM TO SCHOOL. THIS TOOL CAN BE FOUND ON THE HDSB WEBSITE.


THANK YOU,


LIMEHOUSE PUBLIC SCHOOL
