Confirmed Covid case and follow up plans.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

It has come to my attention that a person affiliated with our school has tested positive for COVID-19. Every case of COVID-19 is investigated by Alberta Health Services (AHS). AHS is currently conducting a case investigation and will know shortly if this person may have been in our school while infectious, or if they may have acquired COVID-19 in our school.

The Alberta Government, AHS and our school administration are collectively committed to being as transparent as possible in respect to COVID-19 cases, and as such, if a case of COVID-19 is confirmed to have been infectious or acquired disease in a school setting, a letter will be sent out to all parents/guardians. If AHS determines that this person did not acquire the disease in school, or attend school while they may have been infectious, a letter will not be sent.

Yesterday after school, the maintenance and custodial staff completed a full enhanced cleaning of the school. Enhanced cleaning included using a disinfectant spray on all touch surfaces of the school. After school, the staff met and planned for as normal a school as we advance this week. We have all classes covered with substitute teachers for today from staff that have to self-isolate.

Effective immediately, volleyball practices are suspended for this week.

At this time, the confirmed case was limited to one student. We will reach out to families if we are provided additional positive cases that impact our school. This afternoon the Premier is expected to announce further measures. If any of the measures impact the school, we will notify families as soon as we can.

Please reach out to us via phone or email s-jtfoster@lrsd.ab.ca if you have any questions.
