Como saben/As you are aware, next Monday is a PD day.  For this day, all CBE employees, including teachers, administrators, support staff, and support services, will be engaged in Indigenous Professional Learning focused on “establishing the conditions under which the learning aspirations and the potential of First Nations, Métis and Inuit students will be realized".

Hoy/Today and next week, teachers are analyzing assessment data for all students in Mathematics and writing.  In addition, teachers are strategizing to close gaps and accelerating student learning.  Next week, all students will be involved in Spanish Oral assessments to determine where they are at and what strategies need to take place for each student, class and whole school.

El gobierno de Alberta/The Alberta government will be offering a targeted rapid testing program for kindergarten to Grade 6 schools experiencing outbreaks, as vaccines are not yet available to this age group. Tests are expected to be provided for distribution to parents and staff starting in late October, and will begin with schools that are in an outbreak status at that time with 10 or more cases of COVID-19 that were infectious while in school. The rapid testing will be voluntary and will be administered at home for students and staff who are asymptomatic. If you have symptoms of COVID-19 refer to the Alberta Health Services website to determine when testing is required.

Volunteers and visitors: Scheduled volunteers and visitors to schools are permitted. However, schools may limit this access to individuals supporting  student-centred events and have the strongest connection to curriculum. Prior to scheduled visitors entering the school they must complete the Alberta Health Daily Checklist. If a visitor answers YES to any of the questions, the individual must not be admitted into the school.

Existing partners, including outside agencies, that directly support student learning and well-being will continue to work with our schools. While in a school, partners must follow our re-entry guidelines including completing the Alberta Health Daily Checklist. Con el apoyo de/With support from the Board of Trustees, the CBE will require that all employees, volunteers and CBE partners be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by Dec. 17, 2021. The CBE's vaccination requirement applies to all contracted service providers, tenants in CBE buildings and all volunteers.

The school budget was released yesterday. I would like to have some time to speak with our staff and school council before releasing some details.  ​
