Important Information for Parents and Guardians
Posted: March 11, 2021
To the Parents and Guardians of Glenmary School,
This week our school has been notified of six additional cases of COVID-19 affecting grades 7, 8 and 10. Nearly all close contacts were already isolating, and all new close contacts were informed as soon as possible. Out of respect for all individuals involved, and in accordance with Alberta Health Services guidelines, no further information will be shared about this case.
We remind families to monitor for any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 using the Alberta Health Screening Questionnaire. Please remember to complete the checklist each day prior to attending school. If you or a member of your family has any of the symptoms of illness listed, please fill out the online Alberta Health Services COVID-19 self-assessment or call Health Link at 811.
We encourage all parents and guardians of students who test positive to report their test results to our school as soon as possible by emailing email@example.com. That email address is monitored on a regular basis, including evenings and weekends, and all emails will remain confidential.
The health and safety of our staff, students and community remains our first priority. We know this news can be distressing for families and supports are available. Please be assured we will work closely with Alberta Health Services to ensure we follow their ongoing recommendations.
We will continue to provide additional information to parents and guardians as it is available.
Betty Turpin, Superintendent and David Amiot, Principal of Glenmary School
