New Year Wishes and Updates

¡Feliz Año Nuevo! Happy New Year!

Thank you for your devoted support and commitment for at home learning for our first week of school in 2021. Our dedicated staff put in many hours to plan for this week. 

We recognize this week of at home learning has been challenging for all of our families. We know it’s not easy to help your child(ren) with school work, keep up your regular employment, and take care of house and home.  Talk about multi-tasking!!

From the reports I heard from our teachers and education assistants, I think our students demonstrated resiliency and made the best of the learning opportunities they had through the Google Meet Sessions and Google Classroom. Again, thank you for supporting your child(ren)’s learning. 

We are very excited to welcome our students back for in-person classes tomorrow, Monday, January 11, 2021. 

Just a reminder, we will continue to follow all health and safety measures. These include handwashing, face mask guidelines, physical distancing (where possible) and enhanced cleaning protocols. 

Again, everyone entering a CBE school must monitor for signs or symptoms of COVID-19. The Alberta Health daily checklist can be found here. Please complete the checklist each day prior to having your children attending school.

If your child has any of the symptoms of illness listed on the Alberta Health daily checklist, please fill out the online Alberta Health Services COVID-19 self-assessment or call Health Link at 811 and keep your child at home.

If your child is feeling unwell, they must remain at home. As well, if they have had a COVID-19 test, they must not return to school until they get their test results, even if they are feeling better.

I wish you all the best for this New Year. All of us at Escuela Canyon Meadows look forward to another successful term with our students. 

Respectfully,

Sra. Perera Pérez
