I hope this update finds everyone healthy and safe. I hope everyone had a great Spring Break. I know the staff and students are excited to be back at work.
Covid case numbers are continuing to rise within the province. We are reminding students about proper mask protocols. This includes making sure the masks are covering both the chin and the nose. We are reminding students that they are required to wear masks in the hallways, bathroom, to and from recess and gym. Please ensure your child has their mask prior to coming to school. Please complete the AHS Self-Assessment Checklist with your child prior to attending each morning. If your child has any of the symptoms outlined in the checklist, please follow the guidance listed from Alberta Health Services. At school, we use this document if a student presents with symptoms.
We are finding that students need to have a spare mask in their backpack. Masks often get wet if the students are outside or if they are wearing them for an extended period of time. Please send a spare mask with students.
We know that washing and sanitizing hands, masking, distancing and staying home when sick are the best protections against COVID and we continue to ensure these measures are in place. Your support is greatly appreciated.
