Update on Grade 7-12 At-Home Learning

On November 24, 2020, the Alberta Government introduced a series of new COVID-19 measures that will impact various sectors in our communities and across the province. The following changes will be implemented under the direction of Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer of Health.

As our grade 7-12 students will temporarily shift to Scenario 3, our goal is to offer a full range of both live and recorded lessons for every subject to ensure that all our students have access to everything they would have learned in a normal school day. As you will see in our attached Scenario 3 plan, we have exceeded the minimum standards in order to maintain our commitment of offering the most comprehensive education possible.

Please understand we recognize that having your children on-line all day can be very demanding. Should you have any challenges or specific concerns, please call your school administrator to discuss.
