October 16th, 2020 Dear AFS Families,During our Professional Learning times on Thursday, October 8th and on Friday, October 9th, our staff took some time to really think about how to adapt our teaching to the circumstances we find ourselves in and how to make learning as engaging as possible this year. We will be continuing this journey throughout the year focusing on the mental health and wellness of all our students and staff. We have entered into a new learning environment with many new protocols to follow. We strongly believe that wellness for our school community is a priority this year. We will engage in professional readings and involve experts in implementing strategies that will support our students and all our staff.As new information regarding COVID-19 is released, I know the information can be overwhelming for families. Here at Alex Ferguson School, we are working to ensure care and safety in our classrooms to eliminate as much risk as possible. Alberta Health has released a new AHS parent COVID guide. If you have any questions about the process, you can call Health Link at 811. We appreciate all the work families do to make our school a healthy environment. Sherry Goldenberg, Acting Principal
