Employees requesting COVID-19 Emergency Paid Sick Leave for the reasons described in the Emergency Paid Covid-19 Leave Policy, must complete a request form and provide the requested documentation.

Please be advised of an important change that has been made to some of the COVID-19 protocols for SPS staff.

The change is related to COVID-19 reporting processes and forms required when an SPS employee becomes symptomatic or designated as an out of-school close contact. Specifically, the change requires staff to self-report to Human Resources using the attached form if they become symptomatic or are designated as an out-of-school close contact.

Previously, school-based nurses were responsible for completing those forms for the employee and submitting them to Human Resources.

Please note, the only change at this time is the employee self-reporting requirement in the cases of becoming symptomatic or designated as an out-of-school contact.

All other reporting procedures remain the same. Please see below as a reminder of the overall reporting protocols, including the updates announced here.​

As an employee you will be responsible for completing the following process:  

  • If you become COVID-19 positive report immediately to your principal/supervisor   

    • Submit a copy of the COVID-19 test result to principal/supervisor along with the best phone number to contact you with.
