March 15 Parent Update, 5:30 pm

Good afternoon Connect parents;

Alberta Health Services and Alberta Education have announced that all publicly funded schools in Alberta will be closed immediately and indefinitely. We have just received this information and wanted to share it with our community as soon as possible. Our staff will be in school tomorrow and we will share our e-learning plan with the school community as soon as we can.  We will also arrange for parents to pick up their child’s device and charger if it has not been taken home.

Please check your email and news feeds regularly for further details. I will provide updates as new information becomes available.

Please refrain from trying to email teachers tonight regarding academic work, retrieving devices, or any details of the school closure. I will provide an update to you tomorrow as soon as we have more information and can share our e-learning plan with you. I will say that our priority in switching to an e-learning or remote learning platform will be to ensure we are maintaining the relationships with students and parents that are the heart of our school. We truly appreciate your patience and understanding during this transition.

Phil Butterfield
