We have been notified by a family or staff member that a positive case of COVID-19 has been diagnosed in an individual from Sir Wilfrid Laurier School. At this time, the school does not have official confirmation from Alberta Health Services (AHS).
The school has already contacted each family or staff member affected by the positive case, and AHS will be following up only with those individuals. If you were not contacted, your child(ren) are not affected by the positive case.
Our school remains open to in-person learning for all students, and we are working to ensure necessary measures continue to be in place to protect all staff and students. This includes the cleaning and disinfecting of all items touched by the individual, and the removal and storage of all items that cannot be cleaned and disinfected (paper, books, etc.) in a sealed container for a minimum of 72 hours.
All students impacted by the positive case will be supported in maintaining course work during the designated period online. They will not join Hub online learning.
We remind parents/guardians of students to monitor for any signs or symptoms of COVID-19.The Alberta Health daily checklist can be found here. Please remember to complete the checklist each day prior to attending school.
If you/your child has any of the symptoms of illness listed on the Alberta Health daily checklist, please fill out the online Alberta Health Services COVID-19 self-assessment or call Health Link at 811 and stay home/keep your child at home.
We will continue to provide additional information to parents / guardians as it is available.
