November 23, 2020 – the Saskatchewan Health Authority informed us that there was a case of COVID-19 in an individual riding a school bus serving Elsie Mironuck 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 will begin remote learning and will not return to the school until December 4th.
Letters have been sent to all school families. School is open for all other students on Tuesday, November 24th.
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, student or school family members show any symptoms, they should please stay home and contact Healthline 811. Symptoms are described here.
