New School COVID-19 Measures


November 24, 2020

Today Alberta’s government introduced a series of new COVID-19 measures that impacts various sectors in our communities. As part of these new measures, all Grades 7 to 12 students province-wide will move to at-home learning effective November 30. Kindergarten to Grade 6 students will continue learning at school in-person until the winter break commences on December 18, 2020.

After the winter break, all Kindergarten to Grade 12 students across Alberta will be learning at-home for the week of January 4, 2021 to January 8, 2021. Students will return to in-person school learning on January 11, 2021.

These provincial decisions were made after careful consideration and are based on the advice of Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer of Health. While in-school transmission appears to be occurring at relatively low levels, the temporary shift to at-home learning for junior high and high school students will help limit the spread of COVID-19 as well as alleviate operational and learning challenges. Requiring all students to stay home from school following the break is also intended to help reduce the impact of any exposures over the holidays.

Grades K-6 students

  • Continue in-person learning to Dec 18

  • Winter break Dec 21 to Jan 1

  • Move to at-home learning for the week of Jan 4 to Jan 8

  • Resume in-person classes Jan 11

Grades 7-12 students

  • Move to at-home online learning Nov 30 to Dec 18

  • Winter break Dec 21 to Jan 1

  • Continue at-home online learning Jan 4 to Jan 8

  • Resume in-person classes Jan 11

*All diploma exams are optional for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year. Students and their families can choose whether to write an exam or receive an exemption for the 2020-21 school year.

We will continue to keep families updated as we navigate our next steps. Thank you for your patience.
