OCTOBER 26, 2020 -- On Friday, October 23rd, the Saskatchewan Health Authority informed us that there were four cases of students with COVID-19 at Kitchener Community School. For the safety of students and staff, and in consultation with Public Health, we have closed the school for the week of October 26th. Classes are to resume on Monday, November 2nd.
Staff will continue to work and will coordinate remote learning for students starting tomorrow. Families will be contacted directly today regarding the closure and remote learning for the week. 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, students or school family members show any symptoms, they should please stay home and contact Healthline 811. Symptoms are described HERE.
