RETURN TO SCHOOL

As announced by the Alberta government, students and staff have returned to school under Scenario 1, which means that in-school classes have resumed under near-normal operations with additional health measures. However, we should all be prepared to move between any of the three scenarios outlined in the provincial school re-entry plan. Changes to scenarios will be determined by Alberta Education.

Our school plans are based on the direction of Alberta Education and the Chief Medical Officer of Health. We encourage families to review the Alberta Education K to 12 School Re-entry Plan for more details.

Parking Lot Closure

The parking lot will be closed every morning from 8:15 to 9:00 am to ensure the safety of our students. This means no vehicles will be allowed to enter, exit, or circulate during that time.

This will be strictly enforced. 

Please do not allow your child to jaywalk. Parents of Grade 1-4 students are asked to travel eastbound on Ypres Green in order to safely drop students on the school side of the street – avoiding having to cross the street altogether.

Parents dropping students in Grades 5 and above are asked to travel southbound on Garrison Blvd and drop their child on the school (west) side of Garrison Blvd. If you drop your child on the far (east) east side of the road, they must cross the street safely at a designated crosswalk.

We strongly encourage walking, biking, scootering, carpooling, etc. to school whenever possible.

Students that are seen jaywalking by Lycée staff will be reported to the principal or vice-principal, and parents may be contacted.

Mental Health

Some students may be experiencing stress or anxiety regarding certain aspects of returning to school. We would like to pass on some resources that parents may find beneficial in addressing these issues with their children.

“The Government of Alberta has put in place several mental health supports in recognition of COVID-19. There is an extensive list of supports on pages 18-20 of the 2020-21 School Re-Entry Guide. Alberta Education has also incorporated wellness outcomes for the Kindergarten to Grade 9 curriculum, with a focus on physical and mental health.”

Alberta Health Services has a page of various resources for families regarding Back to School as well as a Guide for Families. The Centre for Disease Control also has many resources on their page about Helping Children Cope.
