Important Communication for Families Nov.10, 2020

November 10, 2020

Dear parents, guardians and families:

We have received information that individuals from George McDougall High School have tested positive for COVID-19. We are working closely with Alberta Health Services (AHS) to ensure the necessary precautions are taken to protect students and staff. For privacy reasons, we will not be sharing more information about the individuals.

Our school will remain open for in-class learning. Additional cleaning of the school will be completed before students return on Thursday, November 12.

Those students and staff, who our records show would likely have had close contact with the individual who tested positive, have been provided additional information about mandatory isolation and will be contacted directly by AHS by emailin the days ahead.

Screening for illness is an essential part of Rocky View Schools’ safety strategies to slow the spread of COVID-19. Do not send your child to school if they are sick or if they answer YES to any of the questions on the Alberta Health Daily Checklist. This checklist needs to be completed daily at home. If your child has symptoms, you need to complete the COVID-19 self-assessment for Albertans and keep your child at home. For questions about COVID-19, call 811 or visit

Our thoughts are with all individuals impacted by these positive cases. We wish anyone impacted a quick recovery and look forward to their return to school when they are well, and it is safe. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.


Laurie Johnston
