Good Afternoon QEHS community,

Thank you to everyone for their patience, understanding and support during these challenging times. Ongoing learning in a time of crisis supported by remote teaching is new for everyone. As we are 8 days into this new model everyone is beginning to adjust and develop routines. Our work is guided by the direction of Alberta Education. In grades 7 to 9, only core classes are continuing (Math, Science & Humanities) with students engaged in learning for approximately 10hrs per week combined all subjects. In grade 10 to 12 core classes are continuing and plans are underway for which non core classes will continue. Students should be working approximately 3 hours per class, per week. Teachers are adjusting their lessons to try to meet these targets. Lesson delivery will focus on the main concepts of curriculum ensuring students receive the essential learning, knowing the gaps will be filled next year as we adjust teaching after the pandemic. Our teachers are trained to work and support students in a face-to-face learning environment, the change to a digital platform is taking some time to learn the skills required to teach in this new way. Assessment will continue and all students will receive a final mark in June.

Friday, April 10 is Good Friday and is a holiday and no classes will be taking place.  Monday April 13 is a Non Instructional Day and no classes will be taking place. Teachers will be taking part in professional development focused on teaching in an online platform. Instruction will resume Tuesday, April 14.

Thank you and the staff at QEHS wish you and your family the best in these challenging time.
