A school on Toronto’s eastern edge is moving toward remote learning due to a COVID-19 investigation.
Toronto Public Health (TPH) said on Twitter that it recommended that students at Grenoble Public School, located near Don Mills Road and Eglinton Avenue, be temporarily dismissed from classes and in-person activities beginning Tuesday.
“We recommend the dismissal of the entire school as a precautionary measure to protect staff, students and the community from further transmission of COVID-19 within the school,” TPH said.

The Toronto District School Board (TDSB) confirmed in a tweet that all students are being fired and moving on to remote learning while TPH investigates.
According to the TDSB website, there are 15 active cases of COVID-19 among students at the school and none among staff. Four cases are listed as resolved.
TPH said close contacts were notified and asked to stay home, monitor symptoms and get tested.
“We will work closely with our school partners to determine when in-person learning will resume.”
