COVID-19 Contact Notification Process

Parents/guardians will now be notified if their child has been exposed to a COVID-19 case who was present at school while infectious. This may include in their classroom, on the school bus or during a school-related activity (club/sports/out of school care).

Contact notification letters will be sent to parents/guardians via email From: communications@mhcbe.ab.ca Subject: School Contact Notification.

When will parents/guardians receive a contact notification email?

  • Each time a new positive case of COVID-19 is identified in your child’s classroom, parents/guardians will be sent a notification letter. Children may continue in-person learning. 
  • If a case of COVID-19 has been identified on your child’s school bus or school-based extracurricular (team/club/out of school care), you will also receive a notification letter. Children may continue in-person learning. 
  • If a school has 10 or more cases in a 14 day period, they will transition to outbreak status. All school parents/guardians will receive a notification letter. Children may continue in-person learning. 
  • Grades K-6 only: If three positive cases of COVID-19 are identified in your child’s classroom in a five-day period, the class will transition to at-home learning for 10 calendar days.

If you receive a Contact Notification letter, please monitor your child closely and test for COVID-19 should symptoms arise.
