Memo – Regarding Testing

As COVID activity and cases rise on Piikani Nation, the COVID Response Team is seeing an increase in demand for testing. Each member of the Nation is valued, first and foremost. However, we must apply a strategic approach to testing, and therefore, we recommend the following:

Symptomatic individuals:

  • Call in to book immediately

Symptoms include:

  • Sore Throat, Runny Nose, Cough, Shortness of Breath (upon no activity}, Fever
    (Greater than 38°), or Loss of smell and taste.

Close Contacts:

  • If you have been deemed a Close Contact to an Active case, we recommend booking a test
    48-72 hours after exposure to the case (unless symptomatic). If we test the same day of
    exposure, it is too early to detect the virus and thus is a potential waste and exhaustion of
    resources.

Students and PBOE staff:

  • We are inviting Students and PBOE staff (that do not/it into above categories} to attend our mass testing operation this Thursday, September 2, & Friday, September 3 at the Mulitpurpose (Hand Game Building) from 0930 am – 3:30pm.

Please, be patient with our team. We are here to serve Piikani Nation. It is an honor and privilege to work for Piikani membership. Therefore, we must apply this strategic approach to attempt to control the current rise of COVID activity.

Thank you, kindly
COVID Response Team

NOTICE OF CORRECTION

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE August 30, 2021

NOTICE OF CORRECTION

Dear PBOE parents,

Our earlier letter sent home with children today requires correction and clarification. The last paragraph of the letter reads, “Please contact Health Services to arrange for your child to receive a COVID test. Your child will be allowed to return upon receiving proof of two negative COVID test results.”

That statement ONLY pertains to kindergarten students who attend NPES and students who ride bus P2. This statement does NOT apply to your child/student who is in K4 or Grades 1 to 12. This statement does NOT apply to students who ride other busses. All unaffected classes and busses will remain operational.

PBOE apologizes for the error in communication.

PBOE has been and continues to work with Aakom-Kiyii Health services during this unprecedented time. Their COVID response team is actively responding to all positive cases within our community and we encourage all parents to cooperate and follow their recommendations for the safety of our children.

Thank you for your cooperation and patience.

Lisa Crowshoe – Superintendent
