“At-Home Learning” and Absence Reporting
We would like to thank our junior high students, families, and teachers for quickly adapting to “At-Home Learning” with the new COVID-19 measures implemented by the Government of Alberta at the end of November.
We ask that parents of students in Grades 7, 8, and 9 continue to report absences to the school office (780-929-8888) if a student is unable to attend class for any reason. Attendance is taken for each of the 6 periods during the junior high school day. If a student is late or has an unexcused absence, parents receive an automated notifications from the school at 09:10 and 16:00.
All students will participate in “At-Home Learning” during the week of January 4 to 8. Elementary teachers will communicate their plan for their class with parents in the coming days.
Families who do not have adequate technology for learning at home are welcome to borrow a school device during the at-home period. Devices can be signed out using the PowerSchool Parent Portal and selecting Student Fees and Forms. Once the form is complete, a device will be sent home with your child or you can arrange for curb-side pick-up.
Parking and School-Zone Safety
Thank you for your support in continuing to use the designated drop-off and pick-up locations. If using residential streets near the school, please be courteous by not blocking private driveways, using them for parking (without permission), or as turnaround points.
