December Message

I would like to thank our Falconridge School community for their support and caring during what has been a challenging school year. You have responded quickly to the continuous change from in school learning to on-line learning and back to in school learning. I am sure that this has put many pressures and stressors on your family life. Yet, you have done what needed to be done and we certainly appreciate your understanding as we all work to keep our community safe.

This week you have received additional supports of face masks and hand sanitizers from the City of Calgary Emergency Response team. We urge you to follow the guidelines set out by the government around gathering and use of masks.

When school begins on January 4th, all classes will be on line for the first week. All Kindergarten to Grade 6 students will learn from home.  Teachers will send you an email to tell you when you child will meet with them on-line for class and small group meetings.

Report cards will be completed and ready by the first week in February.

As we move into our holidays, I would like to announce that I will be retiring and my last day will be January 8, 2021.  I have had the great pleasure of working for the Calgary Board of Education for 45 years. I have truly loved working with the Falconridge Community and I wish you all the best as you continue to support your child's education. Stay safe and take care.
