Chinook School Division administration has been informed by officials from the Saskatchewan Health Authority that a positive COVID-19 case has been diagnosed in an individual at Shaunavon High School and an individual at Swift Current Comprehensive High School.
Communication has been shared with the school communities and any individuals who may have been in close contact with the cases have received letters or have been contacted by the SHA to provide direction.
As a precautionary measure, in addition to supporting the efforts of Public Health, students in the affected classes at Shaunavon High School will move to Remote Learning. The affected group at SCCHS
are currently participating in Remote Learning due to an earlier case, however Public Health has indicated that transmission did not occur at the school between the cases.
To protect privacy, we are not able to share or discuss details.
All Chinook schools follow enhanced cleaning protocols and include multiple protective provisions for students and staff. 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.
