Armstrong's Pleasant Valley Secondary School has alerted parents that some of its students were exposed to an individual with COVID-19 at a Halloween party.

The school says those exposed have been informed and are currently not attending.

In a letter sent out to parents, Nov. 2, PVSS principal Chelsea Prince says the school has not received any direction from Interior Health regarding the exposure, and the school will continue to follow its safety protocols to keep students and staff safe.

"We want to assure you there are well laid out protocols for schools and school districts to follow related to confirmed or alleged COVID-19 cases. Interior Health takes the lead on all confirmed COVID-19 cases and will only notify our school or school district if there is a potential exposure at our school," says the letter.

The letter says stories about "this party" are circulating in the community, and the school has received multiple calls from parents.
