Medicine Hat, AB (July 26, 2021): Alberta Health Services (AHS) has identified positive case of COVID-19 connected to our school. As a result, AHS has directed some students and staff to quarantine for a specified time period.After a thorough investigation all close contacts of the positive case have been identified and notified.We are confident, based on AHS guidance, that those who have not been directed to quarantine can go about their daily lives. Siblings and family members of close contacts are not required to quarantine; however, they are asked to monitor for any signs or symptoms of COVID-19.


We will support this individual and their family and wish them a safe and speedy recovery. We ask families and students to show compassion and kindness for those that have been impacted by a positive COVID-19 case. As always, we will work collectively to foster a safe, caring and welcoming school environment.   

We know that it may be difficult to hear of COVID-19 case in our school community. Please take a moment to read this multiple case letter from AHS. The health and safety of students and staff is our priority, and we are committed to working together to protect our school community, reduce exposure and limit the spread.

We remind ALL parents/guardians of students, as well as any staff/visitors/volunteers to our school to monitor for any signs or symptoms of COVID-19. Please remember to complete the Alberta Daily Health Check each day prior to attending school. If your child has any symptoms of COVID-19 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 them home. 

Out of an abundance of caution, and as we continue our focus on preventing the spread of COVID-19, we have directed our custodial services team to conduct enhanced cleaning protocols before students and staff come back into the building. This additional cleaning will focus on areas where the individual was present along with high touch areas and surfaces throughout the school.    

Please contact the school at warren.buckler@sd76.ab.ca or call 403.528.6700 (press * and then extension 3150) with your questions. We will continue to provide information to parents and guardians as it is available, thank you for your continued support.    

Thank you,   

Warren Buckler, Principal
