Principal's Message

Plan for School Re-Entry 2020-21

We have come to the end of an incredibly unique school year.  To parents/guardians we want to extend a sincere thank you for your continued support, patience, and compassionate understanding through this unprecedented school year. 
Alberta Education has been providing guidance for school re-entry in the fall.  We are currently working on a detailed plan based on recommendations from Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer.  Alberta Education has given school boards three possible scenarios to prepare for.  These three scenarios are:
Scenario 1: In-school classes resume (near normal with enhanced health measures)
Scenario 2: In-school classes partially resume (with enhanced health measures and online supported learning)
Scenario 3: At-home learning continues (in-school classes continue to be cancelled and online learning continues)
All of the scenarios are based on prevention:
Wash your hands often and well
Avoid touching your face, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
Avoid close contact with people who are sick
Stay at home and away from others if you are feeling ill
The plan for school re-entry is based on four principles:
The safety of children, students, and staff comes first.
Children and student learning will continue.
Provincial funding is still flowing to schools.
School authorities have the flexibility to do what is best for the community.
In scenario 1 or 2 using the AHS (Alberta Health Services) self assessment tool, we request that it is used daily to measure students, staff health before leaving home. Guests and volunteers will be screened upon entry to school.   It is compulsory for students, staff and volunteers to stay home when ill.
A final decision about how re-entry will look will be announced by Alberta Education on August 1, 2020.  Currently, we are creating plans for all three scenarios and will be ready to implement our plans on any of these scenarios after the announcement on August 1, 2020.
Last Day of (Online) Classes for Students
Friday, June 26 was our last day of classes for students.  The first day back will be Tuesday, September 1 and we will be communicating how the start-up will look prior to the first day of classes.
Google Classrooms
Please note that as of the end of the day on June 29, 2020 teachers will be archiving their Google Classrooms.  Students will no longer be able to access or submit assignments, use Meet, or communicate with classmates and teachers on the stream.  We are planning on continuing to use Google Classrooms and Meet next school year regardless of which start up scenario is implemented.
Digital Report Cards
Report cards are now available digitally on your My CBE/PowerSchool account for viewing/printing. Please feel free to call the school or the MyCBE/PowerSchool helpline (403-817-6373) if you require assistance with accessing your child’s report card.
From everyone at Alexander Ferguson School we wish you a safe and happy summer and look forward to seeing our students in the fall. To our students that are leaving us, all the best in your future educational endeavors. 
Take care everyone!
