Another Springbank school has reported its first case of COVID-19.

In a letter sent home to parents yesterday (November 23), Principal of Springbank Middle School (SMS), Mary Magee states that an individual has tested positive for COVID-19, and the grade 5 - 8 school is working closely with Alberta Health Services (AHS) to ensure that the necessary precautions are taken to protect students and staff. 

Anyone who would have likely been in close contact with the individual who tested positive has been provided additional information about mandatory isolation and will be contacted directly by AHS in the days ahead.  

Additional cleaning of the facility has already taken place and SMS will remain open for in-class learning.

Magee is reminding families to refer to the 'Should I go to School Today Flow Chart' before heading out the door each day. You can find the flow chart here.
