Illness in School
The health and safety of students and staff is paramount at at Chinook schools. This infographic is an overview of the protocol that will be followed by all schools when a student becomes ill at school.
This protocol has been developed in consultation with the Saskatchewan Health Authority, and aligns with the Government of Saskatchewan guidelines and the Reopen Chinook plan.
Students and staff should never go to school if they are sick or if anyone living in the home has tested positive for COVID-19. Everyone in the home must self-isolate for 14 days from the date of last exposure if anyone tests positive.
Parents will be advised if a COVID-19 related risk is identified to the health and safety of students, staff or the local school community. Timely updates will be provided to parents and teachers about any new developments.
More details are available in the Safe Schools Plan Parent Package.

The Reopen Chinook
plan has been shared with all staff and families. The plan contains detailed information on protective measures and procedures that will be implemented throughout the division.
Schools shared their school-specific plan highlights with families on Friday and will provide additional details in the coming weeks before school starts.
Our plans contain relevant and appropriate measures mentioned in the recent government announcements, and will evolve as required by emerging health risk assessments and government guidelines.
Please note: The provincial government has changed the official first day of school to Tuesday, September 8. Some schools may have a staggered entrance plan. Keep your eye on your email, your school’s social media or website for more information.
