At the risk of
stating the obvious, what a year it’s been! It seems like about a million years ago that
we were welcoming students back in September without any inkling of the COVID rollercoaster
ride we were in for. The challenges this year brought only just gave me more
reason to be incredibly proud of our students, staff and our parent community.
We have worked together to ensure student success and we came up total gold
stars! Certainly, the pandemic has had an impact on how learning continued, but
the year really wasn’t all about a
pandemic. It was about students celebrating learning, parents supporting
students and staff doing all that they do every day of every year to ensure
each student meets with success. We will remember this year - but will not let
it define us!
year will bring with it minimal staff changes, however, the following staff
members will be moving on to different positions within CBE:
· Sarah Kornelson, Indigenous
Educational Learning Leader
· Lori Martens,
· Shashi Bhadoria, Tasc
· Wanda Howell - Tasc
· Sameena Anjum – Tasc
sincerely thank all of the above for the passion, dedication and knowledge they
brought to Deer Run during their time with us. We will miss them and wish them all
the best in their new positions.
to School Information
anticipation of how September will look is on the forefront of our minds and planning
is currently underway for what the 2020-21 school year might look like for
students, staff, and families. The CBE has created an internal task force
with representatives from every service unit to lead the planning for each
different scenario. All of these decisions will be guided by the advice
of the province’s chief medical officer of health and Alberta Education
guidelines. The safety and well-being of our students and staff will come first
in any decisions we make. More information will be provided to families as
our plans become more solidified.
safe and relaxing summer!
