COVID-19 School Notification - April 3, 2021

COVID-19 School Notification - April 3, 2021

April 3, 2021

Over the course of this week, members of our École Dickinsfield School community have been informed they have tested positive for COVID-19. School staff were notified of 5 additional cases late last evening. That brings the total number of cases identified to 7 since March 30, 2021. At this time we can confirm that one of these cases has been identified as a variant of concern. These cases have been linked to a source outside of our school community. 

Our Division office staff in consultation with Alberta Health Services School Contact Tracing Team recommend the following:

  • If your child is in isolation and tests positive for COVID-19, please notify Principal Erin Keca as soon as possible (erin.keca@fmpsd.ab.ca) so that school Division staff can continue to work with AHS to contain the spread.
  • While over break and prior to your return to school we would remind all students, staff and families to continue their daily self-assessment practice. 
  • As a reminder, once school is back in session, and if you are showing any signs or symptoms of COVID-19, please do not come to the school with any signs of illness.
  • If you or your child(ren) require a COVID-19 test, please use the Alberta Health Services Outbreak number: 1-844-343-0971 (https://www.albertahealthservices.ca/assets/info/ppih/if-ppih-outbreak-management-congregate-guidelines.pdf)
    and the school-assigned Outbreak/EI number: 2021-3705 at the time of booking; this will help the Alberta Health Services School Contact Tracing Team as they work to follow and contain the spread of COVID-19 in our community. 

Please take care and stay safe.
