March Updates

Dear Escuela Canyon Meadows Families,

Please, review the updates below to stay informed.

Covid Update

In alignment with the CBE revisions of health measures following the provincial announcement that it has moved to Step 2 of its three-step approach to lifting additional health measures, please see below. 

The following is an adjustment to our school routines that will be effective Monday, March 7. 

  • Grade 1 to 5 students will be able to engage in play with students from other classes within their scheduled outdoor recess blocks.

We will continue to have a soft entry from 7:45 to 8:00 am. We will also continue to follow the current recess and lunch schedules. 

Our students are excited to be able to spend time with peers from other classes during outdoor recess. We encourage parents/guardians to have conversations with your child this weekend about inclusive and safe play. For a long period of time our children have been engaging in play only with peers from their classroom cohort. The opportunity to spend time with others outside of their classroom might be overwhelming and create worries so our teachers will be having conversations with students to reinforce our school motto to be kind. We are grateful to count on your support.

Student Learning Conferences

It is the time of the year again to meet with your child’s teacher during the upcoming Student Learning Conferences on March 10 and 11. Conferences are virtual or in person. You may sign into MyCBE/PowerSchool account to review Assignments posted by your child’s teacher.

ECM Truth & Reconciliation Commitment

In conjunction with the Calgary Public Library our grade 3, 4 and 5 students will engage in a virtual conversation with an Elder the week of March 14, 2022. Our kindergarten, grade 1 and 2 students will participate in an Indigenous story-telling event facilitated by their homeroom teachers.  

These events are precursors to our land-based art residency that will take place in April and May.
