CHS Weely Update June 22-26

Happy Endings start with new Beginnings. Luanne Rice

Dear Families;

Wow! It is hard to imagine that we would have had such a year. A year that made history. We hope everyone is safe and healthy as we begin to return back to a new normal in society. As we come to the end of the school year, the school and staff have been doing a lot to prepare for opening back up in September. Thank you to all those who responded to the CBE Survey regarding start up for Fall 2020. The CBE is responding to the return to school scenarios determined by Alberta’s Minister of Education. The Government will be releasing more information in August regarding how school jurisdictions will proceed in September for school openings. The CBE and Coventry Hills School websites will have updates throughout the summer as to what will be happening in fall. As a school, we are preparing and hoping for students to return. Thank you for all the support you have shown the school and teachers during these very different times. Thank you for partnering in your child’s education. We will be communicating with families in late August about specific plans and preparations for September. Please ensure that we have your most up to date email so we can update families with the most recent information.

We continue to be taking registrations so if you know of someone who has moved into the community recently, please let them know. In addition, Kindergarten registration is ongoing as well.

Coventry Hills Reverse Parade Invitation:

We will be hosting a Farewell reverse parade for our community on Friday, June 26th at 10:00 am to 11:00 am at the school. Students and families are welcome to travel to the school to wave at the staff who will be outside lined up in front of the school and field along Coventry Hills Way. We ask that families travel east to west in the same direction in order to comply with social distancing protocols. Families can choose to walk, ride their bikes or come by in their cars to wave at the staff. Staff members will maintain distancing from families to limit exposure. This is our opportunity to have a last farewell as the year comes to a close.

Farewell

The end of the year is always difficult as we close one chapter in our story of school to open a new one. It is with a tinge of sadness that we say farewell to some of our staff members as they move on to other schools within the CBE. At this time, I would like to acknowledge the wonderful work and connections the staff has made with our students and families. The following teachers will be leaving us: Lisa Sloane, Michelle Hager, Kelly Lawrence, Karli Brinson, Kendra Lowe, Kristi Fagnan, Gurbir Heer, Salima Kassam, Erika Fredette, and Joan Laythorpe. For our support staff Marta Kluska, Dua’a Alramahi and Andrea Lausch will be going to new

schools, and Mrs. Downey and Mrs. Stecker are retiring. We wish the staff well in their future endeavors.

Sincerely,

Benita Dalton and Joan Laythorpe​
