2020 - 2021

Welcome back everyone!

Below you will find important information for the start of our 2020 - 2021 school year.

June 22, 2020 - Below you will find our tentative plan for September.  I want to let everyone know that at this point we do not have a firm plan for the re-entry of our students at this time.  Alberta Education in conjunction with our school division will have the return plan and guidelines out to us in schools prior to the end of August.  For now, the information listed below should give you and your child some idea as to what the start of the year will hold.  We anticipate that we will have a startup orientation as listed below.  However, due to new regulations that may be extended.  For example, we may have a 2 day orientation for grade 7's and one each for the other grades prior to proceeding with the whole school plan.

Finalized information will go out to you all closer to the end of August!

In the meantime we wish you and your families a restful summer and may God bless you and be at your side always!

Kelly L. Kaup - Principal - Sir John Thompson
