MESC COVID-19 Cases (Students/Staff)

Following MESC’s commitment to provide a Safe and Healthy learning environment for students and staff, MESC has developed a Maskwacis protocol for school closure in the event of a positive case of COVID-19 at one of its schools. Referred to as the “MESC GUIDELINES TO MANAGE A POSITIVE COVID-19 CASE”.

To ensure transparency and safety of MESC students, staff and facilities, we will be updating this COVID-19 case page as they arise. The active cases reported here reflect individuals who had tested positive and were onsite while infectious. Out of respect for our MESC families, staff members and their confidentiality, we will never release any personal information.
