Principal's Message

June

Good Morning North Haven School Families,
 
It is hard to believe we are already into June and our final month of school.  Historically, June is spent celebrating the accomplishments of students at assemblies and through school events like sports day.   Although we won’t be able to meet as a school community to celebrate in our traditional way, we still have a lot to be proud of and to celebrate.  Students and staff at North Haven should be congratulated on the high degree of engagement, taking place within our ongoing learning program.  Teachers continue to work tirelessly as they create engaging tasks for our students from a distance.  I have received tremendous feedback from parents reflecting on the amazing work our teachers are doing.  Teachers have also raved about the work students are completing.  I have also heard that this work is not easy for anyone.  The relationships within our school are the key foundation of the work we do together.  The abrupt end to our in-person connections is made even harder knowing that we will not be seeing our Harvest Hills students before they move to their designated schools.  We would like to invite all families to drive by the school between 10:00-11:00am on June 26th, 2020 to wave goodbye to the North Haven Staff and so that we can wave good bye to all of you.  We will be in front of the school on North Haven Dr. NW.  We hope to see all North Haven and Harvest Hills families, to wish you a safe and happy summer.
 
The COVID-19 Pandemic has subdued not only our year-end celebrations but has also changed what school looks like.  There are many questions and much speculation about when students and teachers will return to school, but right now there are no answers.  On Friday, May 29, 2020, CBE sent a survey to all families to gain perspectives about the potential return to classes.  Please take the time to respond to the survey, as your opinion is important.  While making plans for the future, we are also awaiting COVID-19 data and to receive direction from Alberta Health Services and Alberta Education.  As we begin to close out our school year, there is some information we wanted to share with you.
 
Planning for 2020-21:
 
Our student projection for 2020-21 is 130 students.  We currently have 281 students at North Haven.  The decrease in students means that we will be reducing our staff from 14 classes to 7.  Our teaching staff will also be reduced as a result of having fewer students to serve within our school.  In a few weeks, we will send out a public message to say farewell to those teachers who will be leaving North Haven School for other teaching opportunities. Across the CBE System, class sizes will increase by 2-3 students compared to the class sizes this coming year.  We have structured our staff to respond to student needs and enhance our sense of community.  There is a survey link about the school budget and fees below.  Please follow the link to learn more about our school budget and staffing compliment for 2020-21.
 
Fees:
 
All fees that were paid for services that students did not receive in 2019-20 have been refunded. All fees which can still be seen in PowerSchool are for services students received or attended.  Please log on to your CBE Account to pay any unpaid fees for services that were provided before classes were cancelled.  If you have unpaid fees we will send a follow up email as a further reminder.
 
COVID-19 has caused people around the world to experience changes in finances.  In Alberta, we are facing adjustments to our education budget.  In light of these circumstances, we would like to gather information from you to make decisions that will meet family needs, while continuing to provide learning opportunities leading to academic achievement.  Please share your thinking by completing the following survey.  It will share more specific information about our school budget, North Haven Parent Association contributions and individual student fees.
