Hoy/today we engaged all staff in analyzing student work in the areas of English and Mathematics.  The data will allow teachers to close learning gaps and help students achieve greater success in school. The comprehensive school data will support our targets in the School Development Plan. In addition, today, we also created an Oral Language assessment from grades 2 to 6 to see where our students are at.  We know that while online for the past two years, the oral language proficiency regressed due to the lack of opportunities to express the language authentically and spontaneously.  Our aim, once again, is to have a Spanish Language program of studies learning outcomes data for each child to help us close learning gaps.​​

The Calgary Board of Education is requiring that all employees, volunteers and CBE partners be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as of Dec. 17, 2021. Employees who are not fully vaccinated or who do not declare their vaccination status will need to show a negative COVID-19 test result on a regular basis during the transition period.

Beginning next week, if three or more COVID-19 cases are identified within a five-day period in the same K-6 class, AHS will issue an “exclusion notification" which will require students in that class to shift to at-home learning for 10 days. The transition to at home learning from an instructional perspective will be reflective of the same approach used last year and we will provide further updates for your review to support this.

Starting this month, rapid testing kits will be provided to school authorities for distribution for K-6 schools, starting first with schools that are in outbreak status. This program will be voluntary. If families and staff choose to, asymptomatic students and staff will be provided with rapid testing kits to test at home, twice per week for four weeks. Symptomatic individuals should be tested at an AHS assessment centre. We are attending a meeting this afternoon regarding the process and will look to provide further updates as soon as possible.

Quiero agradecer/I want to thank all of our staff, teaching and support staff, for their great professionalism, enthusiasm, dedication to their work.  Together we are helping each student achieve their best levels academically and emotionally.
