Dear Parents and Guardians,

I am writing this letter to provide you with a further update regarding skin irritations that some of our students and teachers have experienced over the past couple of weeks. We continue to work with Ottawa Public Health, area physicians, OCDSB facilities staff and our superintendent to try to eliminate potential irritants in areas where students and staff congregate.

Continued Efforts

A second inspection of the building was performed today in consultation with Ottawa Public Health. Several actions to eliminate potential irritants have been taken, including increasing ventilation, optimizing our cleaning processes, and increasing vacuuming and dusting. We also have additional custodial staff on site.

If Your Child Develops a Rash

If your child develops evidence of skin irritation, please contact the school. If you are concerned about your child’s health, please see your healthcare provider. If you are unable to get an appointment with your family doctor, medical advice is available through Telehealth Ontario at 1-866-797-0000.

I recognize that this experience may be frustrating for some and I will continue to communicate with parents as the investigation evolves. We will continue to monitor the situation and work in collaboration with Ottawa Public Health, and we remain committed to communicating with you on a regular basis until this situation is resolved.

Again, thank you for your continued support and encouragement.



Laurie Pilon

Meadowlands PS Principal
