COVID Update -- School Closure Extended to December 14

December 3, 2020 – UPDATE FOR ALL SCHOOL FAMILIES. Due to an additional case of COVID-19, closure of Grant Road School will extend to Monday, December 14, 2020.

The Saskatchewan Health Authority informed us of an additional case of COVID-19 in an individual at Grant Road School. 

For the safety of students and staff, and in consultation with Public Health, we have informed all additional close contacts and provided them information about self-isolation.

The decision was been made to extend the school closure to December 14, 2020. Remote learning will continue until December 11, 2020. Letters of information were sent to all school families. No automated telephone calls were made to announce this extension.

If there are any additional close contacts at the school, they will be contacted directly by Public Health. A close contact is someone who has been within two metres (six feet) of someone for a cumulative 15 minutes. 

The Saskatchewan Health Authority will contact any school family and staff member who may have been in close contact with the affected students. If any staff, student or school family members show any symptoms, they should please stay home and contact Healthline 811. Symptoms are described here.
