Reporting of COVID-19 Absences

Find on this page the most up-to-date reports of COVID-related absences in our schools and centres.

As indicated in a letter sent to parents on January 21, the process for advising parents and students of COVID-19 cases in schools and centres has changed. The Western Québec School Board like all other school boards and educational service centres in the province is now required to provide specific information regarding COVID-19 absences to the ministry of education. The data is collected twice weekly, on Tuesdays and Fridays (as directed by the MEQ). More specifically, we are required to collect and provide the following data for each one of our schools and centres:

  • Total number of student absences for the given day
  • Number of absences that are COVID-related but do not include a positive COVID-19 test result (ie. student is quarantining because a family member has a positive result, student has COVID-19 symptoms)
  • Number of absences that are the result of a positive COVID-19 test result (the student who is absent from school has received a positive COVID-19 test result)

In a continued effort to keep you informed, the data that is collected and reported to the Ministry of Education will be shared with you via this page, as well as at the school level as usual. The first of these reports is dated January 24,2022.

Our absences data is collected and added below twice weekly, as PDF documents:
