Starting Monday, November 2, families will complete the province’s new daily checklist for children each morning to determine if it is safe for their child to attend school.
This new checklist is for Albertans under the age of 18. However, students who are 18 and over and attending high school will still need to complete the daily checklist before coming to school.
School staff will continue to complete the daily checklist for adults. Both the student and adult checklists are available on the Government of Alberta’s website.
The new checklist does not include runny nose and sore throat as symptoms that require mandatory isolation. It also explains core and non-core symptoms, and next steps for families if their child has either.
The symptoms below are core symptoms:

The symptoms below are considered non-core symptoms:
If your child has one non-core symptom:
If your child has two or more non-core symptoms:
The daily screening checklist is part of a safe school environment. Thank you to all families for continuing to do their part to keep students safe and healthy at school.
