Posted on

June 2, 2021

Alberta Health Services has identified a case of COVID-19 in an individual from St. Francis Xavier School. We are working closely with AHS to ensure necessary measures are in place to protect all students and staff members. AHS has indicated that the school and unaffected classes are permitted to continue.

Please note that all close contacts of the positive case have been identified and contacted directly.

We remind parents/guardians of students, as well as any staff/visitors/volunteers to monitor for any signs or symptoms of COVID-19. The Alberta Health daily checklists can be found at https://www.alberta.ca/covid-19-testing-in-alberta.aspx. Please remember to complete the checklist each day prior to attending school.

As a reminder, if your child has any of the core symptoms listed on the Alberta Health daily checklist, please fill out the online Alberta Health Services COVID-19 self-assessment or call Health Link at 811 and keep your child at home. We will continue to provide additional information to parents/guardians as it is available.

Our custodial team will complete an enhanced cleaning of the school, focusing on areas where the individual was present along with all high touch points and surface areas throughout the school.

We wish the individual a safe and healthy recovery and pray for all of those affected. As always, we ask that students, staff and families practice compassion and respect toward one another during these trying times.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
