Dear parents, guardians, and staff of Holy Spirit Catholic School Division,

As you are all aware, yesterday, May 4, 2021 at 6:00 pm, the Government of Alberta announced that more stringent public health measures would be implemented in an effort to stop the exponential increase of COVID-19 cases in the province. For information about all of the health measures put into place, please visit: https://www.alberta.ca/enhanced-public-health-measures.aspx

Amongst the measures implemented, ALL Holy Spirit Catholic School Division K-12 classes will be pivoting to at-home learning starting this Friday, May 7, 2021. The current plan is for students to resume in-person learning on Tuesday, May 25, 2021, after the May long weekend. 

The only exception at this time is for students with disabilities who require specialized support and service; they will continue their learning in-person.

Also, please be aware that our Early Learning Programs will be cancelled over this time period. June fees will be adjusted to reflect this change.

We are also pleased to learn that vaccines will be available to all children 12 years of age or older starting on May 10, 2021. For more information on this, and to begin scheduling an appointment for your children, please visit: https://www.albertahealthservices.ca/topics/page17295.aspx

We recognize that this will be a difficult transition for many families, but we also know that there is a great need to control the spread of COVID-19 in our province now. We remain hopeful that these efforts will limit the spread of COVID-19 and allow us to come back with the ability to operate safely and completely until the end of the 2020/2021 school year. However, we will continue to monitor COVID-19 case numbers, work closely with AHS and Alberta Education, and proceed with plans to return to school when we are certain that it is safe to do so.

As always, thank you all for your continued support for our schools, staff, and students during these turbulent times. Let us continue to hold each other in prayer.

Sincerely,
Ken Sampson, Superintendent of Schools
Holy Spirit Catholic School Division
