UPDATE: Students at École Nouvelle Frontière will be learning from home next week. An outbreak of more than 10 cases of COVID-19 already has more than 50 per cent of the school population self-isolating.

According to a letter sent to families on February 4th, Alberta Education has granted permission for all students to move to at home learning from February 8th to 12th. In-person classes will start up again on February 16th, as the 15th is a holiday, other than for any showing symptoms of illness.

École Nouvelle Frontière is now reporting more than 10 cases of COVID-19. The school was placed in outbreak status by the province on February 3rd when it was reporting between five and nine cases of the virus.

It’s one of two schools this week, along with Hillcrest Christian School, to be placed under outbreak designation.
