We have been notified by Alberta Health Services (AHS) that a case of COVID-19 has been diagnosed in an individual from Buchanan school.
Our school remains open to in-person learning for all students, and we are working closely with AHS to ensure necessary measures continue to be in place to protect all staff and students. This includes the cleaningand disinfecting of all items touched by the individual, and the removal and storage of allitems 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 D2L. They will not join Hub online learning.
We remind parents/guardians of students, as well as any staff/visitors/volunteers 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.
