Fraser Health said 16 positive cases have been identified at the school.

As a precautionary measure, the health authority said closing the school for two weeks may break the chains of COVID-19 transmission that are present at the school.

Tinney said in his letter to parents that “the school will continue to work with our students to provide support for learning while they are home.”

Parents are expected to get more information over the weekend.
