Trustees Vote to Close St. Margaret School


Dear Parents/Guardians: 

At the April 17, 2019 Public Board Meeting, the Edmonton Catholic School District (ECSD) Board of Trustees voted to close St. Gabriel Catholic Elementary School as of June 30, 2019. As a result, the Kindergarten to Grade 6 students from St. Gabriel Catholic Elementary School will be designated to the St. Brendan Catholic Elementary/Junior High School for school opening September 2019. Furthermore, the Board of Trustees also voted to relocate the programming at St. Margaret Centre for Diverse Learning to the former St. Gabriel Catholic Elementary School site, effective September 2019. 

The Board of Trustees carefully reviewed data submitted by Administration, feedback and letters provided by parents/guardians and interested community members before making their final decision. 

Administration at St. Margaret Centre for Diverse Learning is committed to working with St. Margaret’s students and their families to ensure a successful transition to the new building. St. Margaret Centre for Diverse Learning Administration will reach out to families of all St. Margaret’s students to discuss the transition between buildings. 

Information about the St. Margaret Centre for Diverse Learning closure and relocation process including information about the school, reports and a summary of the feedback collected from the public consultation meeting is available at http://www.stmargaret.ecsd.net. 

Thank you for your commitment to St. Margaret Centre for Diverse Learning and support of Edmonton Catholic Schools. If you have any additional questions, you may contact me at 780.441.6112 at your earliest convenience. 

Sincerely,
Educational Planning
