Dear Parents, Guardians, and Caregivers
Well, that was strangest school year that I can recall. Today would have marked the final day of in-school
classes, as we all prepared for Summer Break and said our farewells. Things unfolded differently this year, but
our students made it through. We are so
very proud of them all.
to our Class of 2020
It is a tremendous achievement for anybody to successfully
complete Grade 12. Years of growth,
determination, effort and sacrifice go into high school completion. This year we have several students to
celebrate – both at our satellite program at Central Memorial High School and
at our main campus school. These young people
have faced challenges and hurdles in their lives, but they stayed the course. They refused to quit on themselves or their
education. They persevered. We want to wish each and every member of our
Class of 2020 every success in the future.
You did it! Please continue to
look after yourselves and strive for a life of happiness. You have all earned it.
Please remember that for the 2020/21 school year, William Roper
Hull School (like all schools in the Calgary Board of Education) will follow
the Traditional School Calendar. As
such, students are scheduled to return to school on Tuesday, September 1. Please note that our Calendar is available on
our school website.
As you are likely aware, on August 1 the government of Alberta is
planning to update all of us regarding the plan of action for a return to
school in the Fall. The Calgary Board of
Education will follow up any announcements by putting into action their plans
for a return to school, and will communicate these plans to students and their
families once they are confirmed.
The staff of William Roper Hull School has worked tirelessly to
assure the continuation of educational, social and emotional support for our
students and their families during these unprecedented times. We want to thank these incredible people for
their dedication and heart, and for continuing to put our students first. We also want to thank the families,
caregivers, and programs that support the wonderful young people that we serve
together. Without this support it is
unlikely that we would have had the remarkable levels of student engagement and
success that we have achieved over the past few months. And last but most certainly not least, we
want to extend our most sincere thanks to the students of William Roper
Hull. We are immensely proud of all of
you. We can’t wait to see you again.
Enjoy your summer everyone.
