Principal's Message - June 30th, 2020

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!


Staff Changes

Next 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, Educational Assistant

·       Shashi Bhadoria, Tasc teacher

·       Wanda Howell - Tasc Educational Assistant

·       Sameena Anjum – Tasc Educational Assistant

We 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.

Back to School Information

The 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.

Enjoy safe and relaxing summer!
