Clear Vista and Gwynne Students will resume in person learning at Clear Vista School starting on January 10, 2022. As messaged out from WRPS on January 7th, please be aware of the following message from Superintendent Barron:
This week Alberta Education announced that in-person classes will resume on Monday, January 10, 2022.
Alberta Education is distributing medical-grade masks and rapid tests to schools, both of which are being shipped to school divisions starting this week. A how-to video for parents and a rapid test program fact sheet offer tips on how to use the rapid test kits. The medical-grade masks will be distributed in school, to be used at school. Schools will communicate directly with parents when and how the rapid tests will be distributed.
Masks continue to be required for grades 4-12 students and all staff. They are also required by all students on buses, and are highly recommended for grades K-3 students in schools.
As a reminder, families are asked to continue monitoring symptoms with the AHS Daily Checklist. AHS is updating the checklist in the coming days. Staff and students are required to stay home if experiencing any of the symptoms in the checklist. Students who exhibit symptoms at school will need to be picked up immediately.
AHS is no longer notifying school divisions of positive Covid cases in our schools. As a result, the division will no longer be communicating this information with families.
At this time, field trips, extracurricular activities, and community use of facilities are paused until further notice. More details can be found in our School Year Plan.
Lastly, Alberta Education is rolling out an online tutoring hub next week for families with children in grades 4 to 9. The e-Tutoring Hub was developed to address learning loss. It will include pre-recorded video tutoring sessions for at-home use that focus on building literacy and numeracy skills. We will share more information as we receive it.
We thank you for your ongoing patience as we work together through another year of disruptions and challenges.
Superintendent Peter Barron
