The Fraser Health school exposures website has been updated and 14 different Burnaby schools have been listed on it during the past week – some private, but most public.

For private schools, the list includes Deer Lake SDA School and Holy Cross Elementary School. Holy Cross say exposures from Dec. 14-16.

The Burnaby public elementary schools include Cascade Heights, Edmonds, Kitchener, South Slope and Suncrest.

For Edmonds, there was a whopping six exposure days listed by Fraser Health, from Dec. 10-15.

The high school cases include:

  • Alpha Secondary, Dec. 7-8
  • Burnaby Central Secondary, Dec. 14
  • Burnaby Mountain Secondary, Dec. 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11.
  • Burnaby North Secondary, Dec. 7-8
  • Byrne Creek Community, Dec. 7, 8 and 9
  • Cariboo Secondary, Dec. 3

BNS has seen the most exposure notices sent home since the start of the school year.

The five dates for Burnaby Mountain Secondary follow one of its students writing to the NOW about not seeing many others at the school following protocols.

“I currently attend Burnaby Mountain Secondary School and have noticed some unsettling things,” the student wrote. “I see that not everyone at school practices social distancing and sometimes do not care about masks or the COVID-19 virus.”

It should be noted that these are just the high schools listed by Fraser Health at this moment. There are some elementary schools listed on the site. There are probably others as there is a lag time between when parents receive notices and when Fraser Health posts the exposures.
