On October 22, the Saskatchewan Health Authority informed us of a positive COVID-19 case in an individual at St. Kateri Tekakwitha School. We are working with Public Health to inform parents and caregivers, and the SHA is doing contact tracing. To our understanding, the risk of exposure for anyone not considered a close contact remains low.

To protect privacy of individuals, we are not able to share or discuss details.

We are a community of faith. We are praying for each other and all members of our school communities who are ill, and hope they are doing well.

With the increase in positive cases in our province in recent days, it is important we all remain vigilant to follow health measures in place to decrease the risk of COVID-19 entering our facilities. Students and families are reminded to be diligent in performing the daily health screening, stay home if you are ill, call HealthLine 811 if you have any COVID-19 symptoms, practice proper hand hygiene, maintain physical distancing as much as possible, wear a mask when appropriate, and do all we can to keep each other safe.
