The Government of Alberta has introduced new health measures for schools to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Under these new measures, if three or more COVID-19 cases are identified within five days in a Kindergarten to Grade 6 class, that class will shift to online learning for 10 days. Your school will notify you if your child needs to shift online.
As a Division, we will also continue to closely monitor attendance in schools. We have the flexibility to shift students online as a measure to keep our school communities safe.
Further measures include:
These new measures support our ongoing efforts to keep school communities safe. We ask families and staff to continue letting us know if they test positive for COVID-19. This allows us to notify families when a case has been reported in their child’s class or school. Our Division has also announced we are requiring employees to be fully vaccinated.
We will continue to keep families informed by sharing information about COVID-19 cases in schools.
