Jackson, D. (2015). A Guide for School Board Pandemic Influenza Preparedness. Régina, Saskatchewan : Saskatchewan School Boards Association.




Why should school divisions prepare for a pandemic? During a pandemic there are various effects that schools can help to mitigate. Schools can implement effective health practices and inform students, parents and others how to do so. Every person who does not become sick during the early stages of a pandemic might benefit from a vaccine once it is developed. Perhaps most importantly, schools can lessen potential societal disruption by continuing their operations as normally as possible. If community members feel confident in sending their children to school, they will be able to carry on with their own work as well.

These guidelines are aimed at public school divisions but will be useful with adaptations for independent schools. Pandemic influenza could cause a great deal of illness and death while affecting society’s ability to function. Recognizing this, individuals are preparing to respond for when another pandemic arrives. School divisions and schools have emergency plans for a number of crises, but have not generally planned for a community- wide health emergency such as an influenza pandemic.The purposes of these guidelines to help give Saskatchewan school leaders a broad understanding of the issues associated with pandemic influenza and to support their planning for educational continuity during a pandemic.ThesePandemic Influenza Preparedness Guidelinesare organized into three sections: Section One – Pandemic Influenza in Context – provides background on the nature of pandemic influenza, its general effects and management and Saskatchewan’s preparations for coordinating a response. Section Two –Education System Planning – describes a process for preparatory planning, including the major impacts that schools will face and suggestions for dealing with them.
