It’s the first full Toronto District School Board school closure of the school year as a result of an outbreak.

“Following a careful and detailed investigation, newly reported cases over the weekend, and potential exposures at multi-grade events, TPH has dismissed all students from in-person classes and activities at Silverthorn Collegiate Institute to protect students, staff and administration,” TPH said in a news release.

As part of the investigation, the health unit will follow up with close contacts, provide guidance and recommend whole-school testing. TPH is also encouraging vaccination for the entire school community including family members of students — if they have not already been fully vaccinated with two doses of COVID-19 vaccine.
