COVID-19 Daily Screening
All parents/guardians are expected to ensure their child(ren) are not sick and/or displaying signs or symptoms of COVID-19 before sending them to school each day. If your child has symptoms and/or tells you they are not feeling well, they are not to be sent to school. They are to stay home and you are to follow public health guidelines. These can be found at https://www.alberta.ca/coronavirus-info-for-albertans.aspx
Parents/guardians can also use the COVID-19 Daily Checklist: Covid 19 Daily Checklist.pdf
If a student arrives at school sick and/or develops symptoms at school, parents/guardians will be contacted and expected to pick-up their child within 1 hour.
Technology Return (Chromebooks)
Chromebooks that were loaned from the school need to be returned starting Monday. Students can bring the device and power cord to the office - school administration will inspect the device and sign-it back into inventory.
Please return these devices ASAP so they can be cleaned, isolated, and then put back into circulation so they can be used by EMS students in school.
