Our school and Livingstone Range School Division are working closely with Alberta Education and Alberta Health Services to follow the public health safety measures including cleaning and sanitizing our school, cohorting and masking protocols, and assisting with contact tracing should a confirmed case of COVID-19 occur in our school.
We agree with Dr. Hinshaw that as we work together, we can keep everyone safe. Visit our Re-Entry 2020 Resources page for more information about how LRSD is trying to do just that.
