October 29, 2020 -- On Wednesday, October 28, 2020, the Saskatchewan Health Authority informed us that there was one case of COVID-19 in a student at École Wascana Plains School.
For the safety of students and staff, and in consultation with Public Health, we have closed the affected classroom until November 9 and students in that classroom will be participating in remote learning until they return to school.
Affected families will be contacted directly regarding the classroom closure and remote learning.
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.
