On October 28, 2020, the Saskatchewan Health Authority informed us of a case of COVID-19 in an individual at St.Kateri Tekakwitha School. In an abundance of caution we have closed one classroom until further notice. All parents/students of the impacted classroom have been notified.  We are working closely with Public Health staff to ensure necessary measures are in place to protect all students.  The virus spreads from person to person by large, respiratory droplets, like from a cough or sneeze.

Public Health will be contacting parents/guardians of students and any staff/visitors/volunteers who may have been in close contact with the case and providing direction.  If you do not hear from them, your child has likely not been exposed because of the measures that are in place.  We remind everyone entering schools to monitor for any signs or symptoms of COVID-19.  Refer to the Daily Self-Assessment Checklist.  Please complete this before attending school each day.

All areas of the school are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected daily.

If you/your child has any symptoms of COVID-19, please call HealthLine at 811 and remain at home.  If medical attention is required, please call ahead to your health care provider.  If it is an emergency requiring urgent attention, call 911.

We will continue to provide additional information to parents/guardians as it is available.  For further information regarding COVID-19, please call HealthLine at 811, and/or visit the Saskatchewan Ministry of Health website at www.saskatchewan.ca/covid19 .
