October 18 COVID Notice

October 18, 2020 Dear parents, guardians, and families, Today, Alberta Health Services (AHS) notified us of an additional individual associated with Cooper’s Crossing School testing positive for COVID-19. We are working closely with AHS to ensure the necessary precautions are taken to protect students and staff. For privacy reasons, we will not be sharing more information about the individual. Our school will remain open for in-class learning. Additional cleaning of the school will be completed before students return on Monday. Those students and staff, who our records show would likely have had close contact with the individual who tested positive, have been provided additional information about mandatory isolation and will be contacted directly by AHS. For classes who are required to self-isolate, teachers are given one day to transition to online learning, and the online format begins the next day. In this case, the affected class will begin online learning on Tuesday. Screening for illness is an essential part of Rocky View Schools’ safety strategies to slow the spread of COVID-19. Do not send your child to school if they are sick or if they answer YES to any of the questions on the Alberta Health Daily Checklist. This checklist needs to be completed daily at home. If your child has symptoms, you need to complete the COVID-19 self-assessment for Albertans and keep your child at home. For questions about COVID-19, call 811 or visit alberta.ca/covid19. Our thoughts are with all individuals impacted by this positive case. We wish anyone impacted a quick recovery and look forward to their return to school when they are well, and it is safe. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. Sincerely, Todd Hennig Principal
