COVID-19 Notices

February 21, 2021

Dear Parents/Guardians,

On February 18th, the school used a Pre-Alert message to notify our community of a positive case of COVID-19 that had been reported by a family or staff member. At that time, the school did not have official confirmation from Alberta Health Services (AHS). The purpose of this message is to inform you that AHS has now confirmed this case.

The school had already contacted each family or staff member affected by the positive case and now, AHS will follow up. If you were not identified as a close contact, then your child(ren) were not affected by the positive case.

We remind parents/guardians of students to monitor for any signs or symptoms of COVID-19. The Alberta Health daily checklist can be found on the CBE Covid-19 information page at https://myhealth.alberta.ca/journey/covid- 19/Pages/COVID-Self-Assessment.aspx

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,

Michelle Brinson 

 Principal, Northern Lights School
