There are eight other schools in the Grande Prairie area with alerts, including Charles Spencer High School, École Montrose School, St. Joseph Catholic High School, Roy Bickell Public School, Isabel Campbell Public School, Derek Taylor School, St. Kateri Catholic School, and Whispering Ridge Community School.

A pair of schools in the area are also listed as under outbreak status, as both Ecole Nouvelle Frontiere and Hillcrest Christian School are both reporting more than 10 active cases of COVID-19.
