Missing You

​Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,

We have now reached the end of the third week of Ongoing Learning as per the order from the Minister of Education.  Teachers and students are gathering via Google Classroom and Google Meet to ensure the essential learning outcomes are met to ensure that students are as prepared as possible for the next school year.  We understand that everyone's access to materials, and context at home is different, and we wanted to let you know that we thank you for all you are doing at home to support learning.  We know that your main contact during this time has been your child's teacher, but we wanted to let you know that the school is open should you require support.  We are happy to support you with technology concerns, accessing programming, and where possible can assist and direct you to needed community supports. 
If you have a child who will abe attending Kindergarten next year, and are unsure of the registration process, please call the school or visit the link at https://www.cbe.ab.ca/registration/registration/Pages/default.aspx
A few weeks ago we sent families a list of possible supports, and wanted to send it again in case your family situation has changed.  We also recognize that you are receiving a ton of emails, and wanted to make sure this information was present and available.
Alberta 211 |can be accessed via the telephone (dial 211) or by the website
The Calgary Food Bank | will be temporarily closed for part of the week of March 16-20. Families needing urgent food support are to access help via Alberta 211. Food hampers can be requested from the Calgary Food Bank by calling 403-253-2055.
Brown Bagging for Calgary Kids | is offering a $30 grocery gift card for any child who has recently received a free lunch at school through Brown Bagging for Calgary Kids.  Visit https://bb4ck.org/help/ or https://bb4ck.org/ and click the green "Need Food Support" button at the top.  This will require families to complete information online so that the gift card can be mailed to you.  
Calgary Co-Op | is offering Care Packages containing non-perishable food essentials, free of charge, to anyone required to be quarantined as directed by a public health agency.  These care packages are available until April 15 and will be delivered to those affected in the Calgary-area.  To request a care package, please contact memberengagement@calgarycoop.com or by calling 403-219-6064.  You will need to provide your name, address, phone number and the start date of your quarantine, as well as your closest Calgary Co-op Store.  This offer will only extend as long as inventory permits.
Additional food supports can also be found at  Meals for Individuals in Need and Food Banks and Hampers.
If none of the above options are working for you, please do call the school and we can see if we can assist or direct you.  
Please know that your children are missed, and that your family is on our mind. 
Colin McCracken, Principal
