Principal's Message


Hello Students and Families of Alternative High School.
First off, let me say how excited and honored I am to be joining the Alti team. I have been a teacher since 2000 in a number of different schools and grade configurations. Most recently, I have been the Assistant Principal at Joane Cardinal-Schubert and Robert Thirsk High School.  My primary focus as an educator is to ensure students have a safe and caring environment to learn and grow in. Perhaps needless to say, I think I have found the right spot to land.  Alti is a great school with many awesome people who make it an ideal environment to work in.
A few housekeeping items:
Alti continues to follow the regular student timetable as we transition into online learning. I am happy to report that student attendance and engagement has been positive. Keep up the great work!
If students have concerns or difficulty during the shift to online learning, please have them connect with their mentor teacher.
Parents/guardians of grade 10 students will be receiving a survey package from Alberta Education that consists of a letter from the Education Minister, instructions for the survey, and a Random Access Code (RAC) to access the survey online. The deadline for survey completion is April 23, 2021
More information regarding summer school through Chinook Learning and CBe-learn will be available soon. A message will be sent home when we receive the information.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at the school.
Warm regards,
Gayleena Clark (she/her) Acting Principal, Alternative High School  Calgary Board of Education|
