Last night, the Alberta Government announced new provincial health measures in response to the Delta variant in our province.
Today we participated in information meetings with the representatives from both the Ministry of Education and Health. We are still awaiting more detailed guidance and specific health orders related to day-to-day operations in our schools.
Mandatory masking for students in Grades 4-12, plus all staff and visitors.
Similar to last year, students can take their mask off when seated at their desks in the classroom.
Masks do not need to be worn outside or during physical activity.
Masks are still mandatory for all students in K-12 when riding the bus.
K-6 classes to implement class cohorting.
School sports, fitness, recreation, and performance activities are still permitted in schools. Spectators will not be permitted at indoor events at this time.
We are committed to providing clarification and updates as soon as we receive them.
As always, we thank our students, families and staff for their cooperation and understanding as we adjust to these changing conditions.
