COVID-19 Notices

May 10, 2021

Dear Parent/Guardian,

We have been notified by Alberta Health Services (AHS) three cases of COVID-19 have been diagnosed in individuals from Battalion Park School and we are waiting for confirmation on a fourth case.

As we have now exceeded two confirmed cases of COVID-19 the Medical Officer of Health has requested Alberta Health Services (AHS) Public Health staff initiate an investigation.

The Outbreak /EI Number assigned to our school is 2021-6132. If you or your children are being tested for COVID19 (due to symptoms or close contacts), please refer to this EI number.

Students will continue learning online as per recent provincial directive. We are working closely with AHS 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.

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.

All students directed to quarantine by AHS will be supported in maintaining course work during the designated period through Google Class/Meets or Brightspace. They will not join Hub online learning.

We remind all staff 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. 

As a reminder, if you have 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.

We will continue to provide additional information to parents / guardians as it is available.

Sincerely,

Jeff Campbell, Battalion Park School
