​​AHS Outbreak Notifications

If more than 10 per cent of our school population is absent, or a higher than expected rate of illness is observed in the school community, AHS Public Health will be notified. This triggers an investigation and a possible outbreak declaration, depending on the results of the investigation. In the event of an outbreak, families will receive notification by letter from AHS, distributed by the school.

Families who receive this letter should review the information carefully. Please monitor your children for signs of illness and keep them home from school if they are sick, and call AHS at 811 with any questions.

AHS determines the length of the outbreak period.

For more information, please refer to the Alberta government's Guidance for Respiratory Illness Prevention and Management in Schools.

COVID-19 Notices

The COVID-19 positive case notification process has changed significantly from the last school year.

Starting on Monday, Sept. 13, schools will begin providing notification when families self-report an AHS-confirmed case of COVID-19 to their school. If families report a positive case, the school will send out an email notice to the school community at the end of that day. Notices will not be sent over the weekend.

It is important that your child stay home when sick, but it is also important for them to attend school if they are feeling well.  As close contacts are no longer required to isolate, if you choose to keep your child at home, it will be marked as an unexcused absence.

For more information, please refer to the Guidance for Respiratory Illness Prevention and Management in Schools.
