With the concerns around COVID-19 some people are self-isolating and otherwise taking measures to avoid contact with illness including choosing not to attend school. On her Friday, March 13th update, Dr. Deena Hinshaw reiterated that Alberta is taking aggressive measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and that she is not recommending schools to close.
Indeed, preventative measures have increased, and you can find out about those measures here https://www.brsd.ab.ca/our-division/news/post/brsd-is-implementing-extra-health-precautions
