COVID Case Identified, Classes Closed, School Remains Open

December 1, 2020 – the Saskatchewan Health Authority informed us that there was a case of COVID-19 in an individual at Arcola Community School. 

For the safety of students and staff, and in consultation with Public Health, we have informed all close contacts and provided them information about self-isolation. The affected students and classes will begin remote learning and will not return to the school until December 11th. Remote Learning will begin for those students on December 2nd.

Letters will be sent to all school families on Tuesday, December 1, 2020. No school-wide automated telephone calls will be made, as this information is being shared during the school day.

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. 

If any staff, student or school family members show any symptoms, they should please stay home and contact Healthline 811. Symptoms are described here.
