EIPS COVID Information
The most current information on procedures and protocols are available on the EIPS website.
Steps to take if your child is sent home not feeling well:
1. Complete the online Alberta Health Services COVID-19 Self-Assessment
- Launch self-assessment
- Answer screening questions (yes/no)
- Follow the AHS directions and recommendations
- If uncertain, call 811.
2. Keep the school informed about any recommendations. 780-796-3936
3. Once able to return, please remember to complete the daily COVID screening questionnaire every morning.
Should a student exhibit symptoms including a cough, fever, shortness of breath, runny nose, sore throat, AHS recommends they be tested and states they cannot return to school for at least 10 days from the start of symptoms or until symptoms have abated, whichever is longer. If a student is tested for COVID-19 and the test is negative, the student can only return to school after symptoms are gone.
If the student exhibits other symptoms such as chills, painful swallowing, stuffy nose, headache, muscle or joint ache, feeling unwell, loss of smell or taste, or pink-eye, AHS recommends they be tested and states they cannot go to school until symptoms have abated. If a student is tested for COVID-19 and the test is negative, the student can only return to school after symptoms are gone.
We sincerely hope your child is feeling better soon.

School councils are an important forum through which members of school communities play an advisory role in school improvement planning. Key factors in collaborative relationships are building meaningful, two-way communication and supporting respectful interactions among education partners. The School council is a structured group of parents, principals, teachers, secondary students and community representatives whose purpose is to advise the principal and the school board respecting matters relating to the school. It is a means for parents and community members to work together with the school to support and enhance student learning.
A school council is a vehicle to support meaningful parental involvement in decisions that affect the school and its operations. The School Council provides the venue for parents to reflect the wishes of the broader community for the education of its students and to actively participate in giving advice and support to the principal in the operations of the school.
