Important Dates

We follow the CBE traditional calendar. The calendar sets common start and end days, non-instructional days and holidays. For our school’s additional non-instructional days, late entries, early dismissal days and events, see our school calendar page.​

The Calgary Board of Education continues to plan for the health measures that may be in place for the next school year. More details will be shared with families before the first day of classes.

First Day of Classes 

Our first day of classes is Wednesday, Sept. 1, 2021 and the school office is open to parents Friday, Aug. 27, 2021, 9:30 AM– 2:00 PM. Regular office hours will commence Wednesday, Sept. 1, 2021 8:00 AM– 3:30 PM.  

All Grades 1 – 4 students will attend school daily beginning on Wednesday, Sept. 1, 2021. Welcoming emails from classroom teachers will be sent to each family after 1:00 PM on Tuesday, Aug. 31, 2021 and that is when students will know their assigned classroom teacher will be.  This email will also indicate the dedicated entry door for each child and students are asked to gather at the indicate door for first day entry. All teachers will be outside on the compound greeting students and families beginning at 8:05 AM Sept. 1, 2021. Parents are always welcome inside the school as volunteers with current police clearances but the expectation continues that children will enter school independently and adults will remain outside once the bell rings and students enter the building.  This enables the school to be confident as to who is in the building and the students will continue to be able to move freely and independently around the school to meet their own learning needs.

Kindergarten

Kindergarten classes, both AM and PM, will have staggered entry days on Wednesday, Sept. 1 and Thursday, Sept. 2, 2021, as per a schedule that will be emailed to parents in late August.  No school on Friday, Sept. 3, 2021 for Kindergarten only. The first day of regular Kindergarten classes will take place on Monday, Sept. 6, 2021 and alternating Friday schedule will begin on Friday, Sept. 10, 2021 with the AM Kindergarten students attending. Kindergarten students will not be assigned to a particular teacher until Friday Sept. 3 – families will receive a welcoming email from their assigned Kindergarten teacher on the afternoon of Sept. 3, 2021. Kindergarten is a co-teaching environment where multiple educators work with the students – assigned teachers will be the primary contact educator for parents and hold responsibility for personalizing learning through collaboration for their assigned class list of students.

All students MUST bring indoor shoes from the very first day – preferably comfortable running shoes with Velcro fasteners.

School Calendar

We are a school that follows the traditional calendar.

Noon Supervision

Eric Harvie School has a fully supervised lunchroom program for students in Grades 1 – 4. Families must register online through their MyCBE/PowerSchool account. Registered students need to bring a nutritious lunch (reasonably sized) they can eat in a 25 – 30 minute period of time. Students eat in their classrooms and then have a whole school playtime outside together. We have a fully staffed Lunchroom Program that establishes expectations and supervise students for the lunch block.

Assigned Teachers

Welcoming emails from classroom teachers will be sent to each family after 1:00 PM on Tuesday, Aug. 31, 2021 and that is when students will know their assigned classroom teacher will be.  This email will also indicate the dedicated entry door for each child and students are asked to gather at the indicate door for first day entry.
