Fear and frustration are growing in Calgary schools as parents, students and staff share information about an increasing number of positive COVID-19 cases while government response remains slow, vague and limited.

This weekend Jana Macdonald, principal at Bowness High School which has at least one case and is quarantining some students, shared an emotional social media post about her concerns over school safety and pointed the finger straight at the UCP government.

“I’m exhausted, devastated, furious, frustrated, scared, anxious, sad and so many, many more things all at once,” Macdonald posted on her Facebook page, with other staff reacting in agreement.

Since the opening of school last week, officials with the Calgary Board of Education have confirmed cases of COVID-19 at Canyon Meadows School, Bowness High School, Bridlewood and Lester Pearson High School.

As well, parents at Arbour Lake School and Brentwood School were sent home a message Tuesday regarding a positive case in a Southland Transportation employee.

By Tuesday afternoon, five schools with the Calgary Catholic School District have a confirmed case of COVID-19, including St. Angela, Divine Mercy, Notre Dame, St. Wilfrid and St. Francis High School.
