A case of COVID-19 has been identified at Valley Manor Elementary School in Martensville.
The school’s principal confirmed the case in a letter sent to parents on Monday.
“Public Health will be contacting parents/guardians of students and any staff/visitors/volunteers who may have been in close contact with the case and providing direction,” Garth Harrison wrote in the letter.
“If you do not hear from them, your child has not been exposed because of the measures that are in place,” the letter continues.
Last week, cases of COVID-19 were confirmed in five schools in the Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools division.
The letter reminds anyone entering schools to monitor for signs or symptoms of COVID-19, and urges parents to keep children at home if they have any of those symptoms.
The Saskatoon Public Schools Division (SPSD) said it was notified Monday afternoon by the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) of two separate cases.
One is at Colette Bourgonje School; the other is at James L. Alexander School.
