COVID-19 Variant of Concern case at Westgate School

April 17, 2021

Dear Parent/Guardian,

We have been notified by Alberta Health Services (AHS) that a case of COVID-19
has been diagnosed in an individual from Westgate 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. 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,

Scott Fehr
