Update: Contact notification communication for COVID-19 cases

Lethbridge School Division has revised the communication processes regarding contact notification.

ALL Grades

Starting this week, if there is a positive COVID-19 case in a school reported to the Division from Alberta Health Services, communication will be sent to all parents/guardians and staff in the school containing the following information:
• The class(s) and other cohort groups (eg. extra-curricular school club or team) with a positive COVID-19 case
• The bus route(s) with a positive COVID-19 case.

Kindergarten to Grade 6 - Exclusion Notification

Exclusion Notification continues to ONLY occur with classes of students in grades K-6. As a reminder, Exclusion Notification occurs if there are three or more cases in a five-day period identified in one cohort group. An Exclusion Notification will advise that the students in that group will move to at-home learning, as per AHS guidelines for exclusion. Exclusion does NOT apply to bus cohorts.

For more information on the number of COVID-19 cases in your school, visit the Government of Alberta’s COVID-19 school status webpage.
