Date of Release: October 23, 2020
On October 23, officials from the Saskatchewan Health Authority identified a positive COVID-19 case in an individual at Jubilee Elementary School in Meadow Lake, SK.
Communication has been shared with the specific classroom/cohort, as well as the school community. The SHA is conducting contact tracing.
To protect privacy, we are not able to share or discuss details.
Our thoughts are with this member of our school community, and we hope they are doing well. We all have a shared responsibility to decrease the risk of COVID-19 entering schools.
Our school plans contain many important measures, processes and protocols which add layers of protection for students and staff.
Students and families are reminded to be diligent in performing the daily health screening, stay home if ill, call HealthLine 811 if exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms, practice proper hand hygiene, maintain physical distancing as much as possible, wear a mask when appropriate, and do everything we can to keep each other safe.
Grade 10-12 students interested in taking an online course in Quint 2 (October 30-December 22) must register by October 25th.
Complete the 'Quint 2' section of the Online Learning Course Selection Form and return completed forms to your school or the Meadow Lake office - or via email - firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registrations must be submitted by October 25th.
As we begin the school year one of our most important procedures for families to remember is that if a child is sick they need to stay home.
We encourage families to use our Self Assessment guide to do a quick check each morning before school.
If your child is displaying any NEW or WORSENING symptoms on the chart, please keep them home.
A common question is - what if my child has asthma or seasonal allergies?
If this is a typical symptom your child experiences, or what might be referred to as their baseline, then it is not NEW or WORSENING. If you are concerned that this issue may arise, please make sure you communicate with your child's school.
*Please see the chart below from the Saskatchewan Health Authority for a comparison of common seasonal allergy symptoms to COVID-19.
