HFCRD Students Return to School In-Person Tuesday May 25
Posted: May 20, 2021
Dear Parents and Guardians,
As announced by Minister of Education Adriana LaGrange yesterday, Holy Family Catholic Regional Division (HFCRD) schools together with almost all schools across the province will resume in-person learning for students on Tuesday May 25. While we are looking forward to welcoming students back to school, we want to remind our school communities to remain committed to following public health guidelines from Alberta Health Services:
- We remind families to monitor for any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 using the Alberta Health Screening Questionnaire. 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.
- If your child is sick, they must stay home. We encourage parents to review the Top 5 Symptoms Flowchart and Secondary Symptoms Flowchart provided by Alberta Health Services that will provide guidance about what to do when your child has symptoms or is a close contact to a positive case. If your child is isolating at home, their teacher will provide assignments that can be completed at home.
- If your child is a close contact of a positive case, they cannot go to school for 14 days after their last close contact with the positive case. We recommend reviewing the guidance in the Close Contact Flowchart, having your child tested and following all isolation requirements from Alberta Health Services. Students who are isolating will receive assignments from their teacher that can be completed at home.
We thank you for your continued commitment to keeping our school communities safe. We are grateful to all families for their patience and cooperation. With heightened diligence, together we can have a strong end to the school year.
Yours in Christ,
