There is an additional positive case of COVID-19 connected to Crestwood School. As a result, AHS has directed some students and staff to quarantine for a specified time periodWe have conducted a thorough investigation, as a result, all close contacts of the positive case have been identified and quarantined. To date, AHS has identified COVID-19 cases connected to Crestwood School. We are confident, based on AHS guidance, that those who have not been directed to quarantine can go about their daily lives.

Every day nearly 8000 students and staff enter our schools, making them the most densely populated buildings in the city. It is not possible for us to stop COVID-19 from spreading in our schools. We are, however, committed to working together to protect our school community, reduce exposure and limit the spread.  


The health and safety of our students and staff is our priority and we continue to perform enhanced cleaning and proper hand hygiene protocols in schools.
 We have worked with AHS to build and continually review our practices; our custodial services team will 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. The daily health measures that we have in place at our school are effective in limiting the spread of COVID-19.
 

With the recent additional health measures most of our students will be learning at home, however we will continue to notify our school community when we become aware of additional COVID-19 cases that are connected to our school. During the temporary online learning period we will have some staff and students coming into the school building and we will remain open by appointment. We remind staff/visitors/volunteers to monitor for any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 listed on the Alberta Health daily checklist. If you/your child has any of the symptoms of illness 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 stay home/keep your child at home. For more information about positive COVID-19 cases in school please read COVID-19 in Schools (k-12) setting.
