Welcome Back Archers! Sherwood Re-Entry 2020

Welcome Back Archers!

We are very excited to be welcoming back our Archers to the building after being away since March. We hope our school community has had a safe summer to connect with loved ones and recharge. We understand that in this new reality, returning to in person classes has caused some anxiety and many questions still linger. The CBE is currently working closely with Alberta Health Services and Alberta Education to meet health measures and help to reduce the spread of COVID-19. We can assure you that student and staff well-being remain our top priority.

We are really look forward to seeing our students once again. We want to provide information regarding start up details for next week.

2020-2021 School Re-entry Plan . Sherwood Re-Entry Plan can be found here Sherwood 2020-21 Re-Entry.


Given the cohorting parameters and other restrictive guidelines set forth by the Alberta Government with respect to athletics, all Fall sports have been postponed. This includes any type of organized meeting, conditioning or skill development sessions, tryouts and practices. This decision will be re-evaluated on or before October 1, 2020.

 

Sherwood is looking forward to welcoming students back to school in September. As we prepare for a return to school, it is important to note that our ways of working together are changing and will be responsive keeping all students safe, and we all have a responsibility to ensure the safety of ourselves, and others. We are committed to ensuring that students learn new behaviours and strategies to minimize the risk of infection. We are excited about the school year to come. We understand there are many questions that remain, please watch your email for more updates as we continue the planning process. Thank you for your continued support as we reopen Sherwood and learn together how to live in our new reality.​
