Welcome back! We sincerely wish to thank our teachers, our students and you for engaging in on-line learning this week. As we continue to follow provincial direction, all schools will be resuming in-person classes on Monday, Jan. 11. We are excited to welcome our students back. The decision to move between scenarios is made by Alberta Education in consultation with the Chief Medical Officer of Health.
Parking & Drop Off
With the heavy snowfall we experienced over the break, we have accumulated snow on the streets in and around the south side of the school. These plowed snowbanks will create some challenges with drop off and pick-up on the south side of our school. Thankfully, our bus zone, and drop zone on the east side (front of school) have been cleared allowing clear access to these areas. You may want to allow a few extra minutes navigating these issues next week.
Daily Health Checklist
We remind everyone entering a CBE school they must monitor for any signs or symptoms of COVID-19. Please complete the checklist each day prior to attending school. If your child has any of the symptoms of illness listed on the Alberta Health daily checklist, please fill out the online Alberta Health Services COVID-19 self-assessment or call Health Link at 811 and keep your child at home. If your child is feeling unwell, they must remain at home. As well, if they have had a COVID-19 test, they must not return to school until they get results, even if they are feeling better.
Evergreen School council will meet virtually this Wednesday at 6:30. If you are interested in participating in the meeting, please email email@example.com to receive the meeting link.
Please remember that we will try to do as much of our Phys Ed program outside as we can this year. This provides us all with some much-needed fresh air each day and a mask break as well. The weather has been outstanding so far and it looks good as we roll into the first part of January. Parents, can you please support your students in having all of the necessary clothing to spend up to 30 minutes at a time outside. This includes proper footwear, snow pants if necessary and coats that block some wind and wet. Also, PLEASE have students pack mittens and hats every day. Morning classes are generally colder than the afternoons, but any day can shift 15-20 degrees in a matter of hours.
For the week of January 11-15, we may be heading out for some winter walks on our community pathways for some PE classes. Give us a wave if you see us out there!
Kindergarten Registration 2021-22
Kindergarten registration for the 2021-22 school year begins on January 11th. With access to the school being limited for everyone's safety, registration is to be completed on-line. The following is the process to register students new to CBE who are Canadian citizens. If you have questions, please contact the school directly.
Required Documentation: For a list complete list of documents, see the last page of the registration form.
- Student Registration Form – Dependent Student; Save the file as “New Registration -" followed by the full legal name of the child/student.
- Proof of age; Canadian Birth Certificate or Passport.
- Proof of address; Drivers Licence of legal guardian.
The subject line of the email is to be “New Registration -" followed by the full legal name of the child/student. For example, if the full legal name of the child is Morgan Aubrey Smith, then the subject line of the email is "New Registration - Morgan Aubrey Smith".
Attach the registration form, proof of address and the proof of age, legal name and citizenship document to the email.
In the body of your email, please indicate your preference for AM or PM kindergarten class placement. Please note that although we will do our utmost to meet the needs of the families in our community, kindergarten placement in AM or PM is not done on a first come first serve basis nor can we provide any guarantees.
Until documents can be verified in person at the school, student registration is conditional. In the majority of cases, this will not be done until the health emergency is over.
