A positive case identified

Chinook School Division administration has been informed by officials from the Saskatchewan Health Authority that a positive COVID-19 case was identified in an individual at Shaunavon Public School.

Communication has been shared with the school community and any individuals who may have been in close contact with the case have received letters or have been contacted by the SHA to provide direction.

As an extra precaution and to support the efforts of Public Health, the affected class at Shaunavon Public School has been moved to Remote Learning for the necessary time period.

To protect privacy, we are not able to share or discuss details.

All Chinook schools follow enhanced cleaning protocols and include multiple protective provisions for students and staff. We all have a shared responsibility to decrease the risk of COVID-19 entering schools.

Our school plans contain many important measures, processes and protocols which add layers of protection for students and staff.

Students and families are reminded to be diligent in performing the daily health screening, stay home if ill, call HealthLine 811 if exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms, practice proper hand hygiene, maintain physical distancing as much as possible, wear a mask when appropriate, and do everything we can to keep each other safe.
