Covid-19 update for Pincher Creek and Crowsnest Pass schools

Livingstone Range School Division, much like many other school divisions in the province, is experiencing increased cases of Covid-19 in the month of April. 

Crowsnest Consolidated High School, Isabelle Sellon School and Matthew Halton High School have each had one positive Covid case attend school while infected. 

Those staff and students considered to be close contacts have been notified and are required to stay home in isolation for a two-week period and classes have moved to online learning during this time.

To help minimize spread of any respiratory virus, AHS recommends the following: 

  • Make sure everyone in your household washes their hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, you can use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if hands are not visibly dirty. 
  • Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands. 
  • Use a tissue when you cough or sneeze and throw it in a garbage bin lined with a plastic bag. Wash your hands immediately after that. If you don’t have a tissue, sneeze or cough into your sleeve. 
  • Stay home if you’re sick. If you kids are sick, keep them home from school. 
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces that are used often and shared by everyone in your home, such as door knobs, light switches and bathroom taps. 
  • Practise physical distancing outside the home (at least two metres) and wear a mask in public spaces if social distancing is not possible. 
  • Ensure your child’s immunizations are up to date, including their annual influenza immunizations.
