On Tuesday, November 17th, Prairie Spirit School Division (PSSD) released a statement regarding a positive case of COVID-19 in an individual at Venture Heights Elementary School in Martensville.
“The school community has been informed. To protect privacy, we are not able to share details. We are working closely with Public Health staff to ensure necessary measures are in place to protect all students and staff,” the statement from PSSD noted.
As a reminder to the public, PSSD stated that 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.
Last week, it was announced that after multiple positive cases of COVID-19 were confirmed in individuals at Martensville High School (MHS), the school would be moving to remote learning under Level 4 of the Safe Schools Plan. MHS will remain in Level 4 until November 23, where they will then move to Level 3, which will continue until Christmas break and be reevaluated at that time.
