Contact Tracing

High Prairie School Division is working with Alberta Health Services to support contact tracing in our schools and on our buses. If you've received a positive COVID-19 test result, you must immediately:

  1. Self-isolate
  2. Complete the COVID-19 Close Contacts Identification Guide
  3. Enter your close contacts into the COVID-19 Contact Tracing Tool

Note: The tool will instruct you to enter such information as name, date and locations of contact, phone number and other information that will help the AHS contact tracing team identify anyone in priority groups, and allow for appropriate means of contact tracing. You may receive a follow-up call from AHS to discuss the information you entered.

 

I am student or staff member who has tested positive for COVID-19

In addition to the above, if you are a staff or a student (or a parent/guardian of a student who has tested positive for COVID-19), please reach out to us immediately so High Prairie School Division can begin contact tracing within the school setting to limit the spread of COVID-19 in our schools.

 

Who to contact?

School days during school hours (8:00 am - 4:00 pm, Monday - Friday excluding holidays), please contact your school.

 

After hours and weekends, please contact us by email at news@hpsd.ca.
