Principal's Message

February 27 | Update

​Dear Parent/Guardians,
It has been a challenging week for our school community as we have navigated a number of COVID cases over the past seven days. I am certainly thankful for the ways in which students, teachers and families show their support. This week has also been one of encouragment. On Monday, we had nine substitute teachers in our building, and many of them spoke of the way in which our students and staff welcomed them into the community. During the day on Friday, a number of teachers shared encouraging stories of how students are engaging in their learning and seeing success - for this I am thankful, as we navigate the complexities of our world.
Please continue to take good care of each other. The letter below is the formal notification of a case. As you may be aware, this notification goes out to families once those directly impacted have recieved notification. A number of families have had difficulty opening the letter when it is sent as an attachement. I am hoping including the letter in the body of the text is helpful - though long.
Sincerely,
Mandy
 
 
We have been notified by Alberta Health Services (AHS) that a case of COVID-19 has been diagnosed in an individual from Dr. Gladys McKelvie Ebgert 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 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 D2L and/or Google Classroom. 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.
We will continue to provide additional information to parents / guardians as it is available.
 
Sincerely,
Mandy​
