COVID Identified, Parents Called, School Open

December 5, 2020 – The Saskatchewan Health Authority informed us that there was one case of COVID-19 in an individual at Balfour Collegiate. 

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 and classes will begin remote learning and will not return to the school until December 15th, as long as they are feeling healthy. Remote Learning will begin for those students on December 7th.

We have also contacted all school families by automated telephone call to inform them.

Letters will be sent to all school families on Monday, December 7, 2020

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. 

If any staff, student or school family members show any symptoms, they should please stay home and contact Healthline 811. Symptoms are described here.
