Safe School Re-Entry: In Response to COVID-19

The following resources have been developed for our staff and families to see our plans and preparations for the upcoming school year. As the situation evolves, these resources will continue to be updated:

You may also wish to refer to Alberta Education's K-12 School Re-Entry Resources, as well as Alberta Health Services's Guidance for Parents of Children Attending School and/or Childcare website. 

While we continue to plan and work for a safe start to our school year on September 1, 2020, there are some key things we will be asking our families to do to help us ensure the safety of our school communities: 

  • Before leaving home everyday, complete the Daily Screening Questionnaire for your child. If you answer "Yes" to any of the questions, please stay home.  This is the number one way we can help to protect our children and staff.  (NOTE: the school will not be collecting this information and does not need you to print or present it.)
  • Ensure the school has your most up-to-date contact information and be prepared to pick up your child promptly if they show symptoms at school.
    • We also highly recommend that you enable text messages, or download the SchoolMessenger App, so that you may receive timely information directly on your phone. Please know that the school division will only send you text messages in emergency situations.  See our website for more information on this, or contact your child’s school directly for assistance.
  • Talk to your children about the new health measures and teach and practice these important skills:  washing / sanitizing hands, physically distancing, wearing a mask when physical distancing isn't possible  (Dr. Deena Hinshaw has created this video to demonstrate how to put on/take off/wear masks properly), and practicing good respiratory etiquette.
  • Let your child's school know if your child has pre-existing medical conditionsThis information will help to  better identify if a student’s developing symptoms may be caused by COVID-19 or by a known preexisting condition (e.g. allergies).

It's everyone's responsibility to ensure the health and safety of all our students.  Thank you for doing your part!
