Summer Break 2020

Heartfelt thanks to everyone in our Chinook’s Edge school communities
for your patience and attention during this time of COVID-19.

With learning now complete for this school year, we are turning our attention to the 2020-21 school year and re-launch plans for September. As always, we are taking our lead from Alberta Education and Alberta Health Services, and we are making plans for three different scenarios at their request (normal operations, in-school classes with additional health measures, and at-home learning online).

The Minister of Education is expected to announce in early August which scenario will be formalized for the start of the new school year, and Chinook’s Edge will communicate our division-specific plans by Augsut 14th. We are pleased that, at this point, the provincial government has indicated they expect students will return to daily in-school classes in September (Scenario 1). However, we expect that we may have to move between scenarios at different times, based on government direction and the evolving COVID-19 situation. We are preparing details in compliance with government health and safety guidelines for each scenario. Our priority in Chinook’s Edge, as always, is the safety of everyone who enters our schools and facilities.
