COVID-19 testing available for students and their family members on May 6, 2021.http://cam.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/451COVID-19 testing available for students and their family members on May 6, 2021.<p>To ensure that our school remains safe for all to learn and work in, we have partnered with LifeLabs, Canada's largest medical laboratory, to provide free COVID-19 testing for all students and their family members, teachers, and staff at Cameron Street PS. There are no appointments; families can attend at any time during the clinic.</p><p>COVID-19 testing is voluntary and only for asymptomatic individuals (those who are not experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms.) </p><p>If you are interested in participating, testing will be available on the following date:</p><ul style="list-style-type:disc;"><li>Date: Thursday May 6, 2021</li><li>Time: 3:30 – 8:00 p.m.</li><li>Location: Collingwood Collegiate Institute – 6 Cameron St., Collingwood, Ontario</li></ul><p>Asymptomatic testing is an important layer of protection that helps to track and prevent the spread of COVID-19. Increased testing may also help to reduce stress and anxiety related to the virus by identifying cases early and avoiding outbreaks.</p><p><strong>Our Goal = less discomfort!</strong></p><p>The test process is very simple and safe and the collection site will be staffed by professionals who will be following a multitude of safety parameters. LifeLabs uses a swab similar to a Q-tip that is inserted into the front part of the nostril and rotated for fifteen seconds (per nostril). After the sample is collected, the test results will then be available within 24-48 hours on LifeLabs WorkClear Thrive application. If an OHIP number has been provided at the time of check-in/registration results will also be uploaded to covid19results.ehealthontario.ca. </p><p>Thank you for helping us keep the Cameron Street PS community safe and healthy so that we can avoid any further disruption from the COVID-19 virus! </p><p><br></p><p> </p><p><br></p>

Before and After School Drop-Off and Pick-Up Routineshttp://cam.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/447Before and After School Drop-Off and Pick-Up Routines<p><em>To ensure the safety of students and their families, we ask that you please refrain from using the school parking lot for drop off in the morning and after school.  The parking lot exit is for the smooth flow and exit of busses only.   The bus drivers are also very concerned about the number of walkers in the lane way and we ask that you please use the sidewalks along Cameron and Birch Street rather than cut through the parking lot at drop off and pick up.   This will help ensure that all of our families and students remain safe and that the busses can safely move through our bus loop before and after school.  </em></p><p><em>If you must drive to school, we suggest that you "drop a block" and park a short distance away from the school and walk the remaining distance.  If you are unable to this, please use our 'drop and go' area outside the kindergarten and primary yard gates.  If you are using this drop off, please approach parking spots from the east and refrain from doing U-turns and multi-point turns when exiting your 'drop and go' spot.   </em></p><p><em>The safety of our students and their families is our top priority.  We really appreciate your support!</em></p><p><em></em><br></p>
