Dates to Remember


Principal's Message

Louis Update - September 18, 2020

Hello Louis Riel Families,
It is hard to believe that just a few weeks ago we welcomed back our in-person students and this week our Louis Hub students are meeting their teachers! It is wonderful to see all the students and staff connecting with each other. Our mantra is “kind, calm, safe – together."  Over the past few weeks, I have seen these words demonstrated through so many conversations and actions by our students, staff and parents/guardians.
Below are a few reminders and important dates:
Be prepared to be outside: It is wonderful to see our students and staff outside learning in nature.  Please remember to make sure students are wearing comfortable walking shoes and weather appropriate clothing.
Student illness at school: We are following the CBE protocols that have been developed in collaboration with Alberta Health Services.  This includes processes to ensure staff safety, we are using Personal Protective Equipment and we are following the process to ensure students belonging are safely given to parent for disinfecting and cleaning.It is important that parents/guardians are able to pick-up their unwell child within an hour or to ensure their identified emergency contact is able to come quickly to the school.  As well, if your child has a pre-existing condition that may present as symptoms of Covid, please complete an Annual Student Health Plan (a new form must be completed each year) see link below. if the Student Health Plan is completed if a student is unwell and not able to learn the parent/guardian will be contacted for a pick-up. We are asking that all parents consult with Alberta Health Services (811) to determine when their child can return to school.
Terry Fox Run:  Louis Riel School is proud to take part in this year's 40th Anniversary of Terry Fox's Marathon of Hope. Students will be walking in their cohort and following CBE Health and Safety protocol on Thursday, September 24th in their PE class. We encourage our Louis Hub students to plan a walk or run with their families sometime next week. Students are encouraged to wear their house colours – Bears wear blue, Turtles wear green, Wolves wear white and Eagles wear red.
Please help show your support by donating to: Students can even get involved too by creating their own fundraising page under their school name: Thank you for your supporting our school in the fight against cancer and continuing Terry's legacy! #terryfoxschoolrun @terryfoxfoundation
School Photo Day:
Wednesday, September 23rd for Louis students learning in-person at the school
Friday, October 30th for Louis students learning in the Hub (this is a PD day, parents/ guardians will be able to pre-book photo times to ensure physical distancing) more information to follow.
Louis Wear:
We all promote school spirit by wearing blue clothing or wearing Louis clothing on Fridays.  Please feel free to order your clothing by accessing the link below: 
All items will be individually packaged and shipped to the school labelled with purchasers name and/or grade. Hub students items will be kept in the office for pick-up.   Online Store Link (no access code anymore, just a direct link).
Online store closes on Monday, September 21st.  It will reopen again for purchasing in January.
We encourage our Hub students to participate and show school spirit online.
Individual Program Plans (IPP's) your child's teacher will be sending you an email next week to begin preliminary conversations about goals.  A reminder that there are no classes on Friday, September 25th to give time for teachers to develop student IPP's.
