Move to Traditional Calendar 2020

Dear Parents and Guardians,
 
Due  to the ongoing health risk of COVID-19, the Calgary Board of Education has made the decision to move all modified calendar schools and programs to the traditional calendar next year.  This means our first scheduled day of classes will be Tuesday, September 1, 2020.   Catherine Nichols Gunn School has operated on the modified schedule for many years.  Please know the decision that was made for the 2020-21 school year was not based on the merits of the modified calendar, and is only made due to the ongoing health risk.
 
The safety of our students and staff is of the utmost importance, and we look forward to welcoming back our students as soon as it is safe to do so.  More information about the re-entry plans for next school year will be provided later this summer.
If you would like to see a template for the traditional calendar, you may see it here. Traditional Calendar.  Please note that the specific school calendar will have slight variations, and in the next week you can expect to receive an updated school instructional calendar based on the traditional schedule, as well as updated bell times.   This means, due to a later start, that we will follow the shorter winter and spring breaks of the traditional calendar, and the usual fall break following Thanksgiving will not be a part of the school year.
Thank you for your understanding and patience.  Please see our school website for more information, including some frequently asked questions.
 
Colin McCracken, Princpal
