​Important Dates

We are a modified calendar school. However, due to the ongoing health risk of COVID-19, the CBE has made the decision to move all modified calendar schools and programs to the traditional calendar for 2020-21. 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 Alberta Government announced on July 21 that schools will be in Scenario 1 as of Sept. 1, 2020.  

The CBE's 2020-21 re-entry plan is subject to change as more information becomes available from the province. We will continue to update schools with more details during the next school year.​

You can find the COVID Self-Assessment Tool​ (daily checklist) in the Government Resources section on the CBE website.

School Supply Lists

School supply lists are distributed by teachers the first week of school along with course outlines.

Noon Supervision

A full meal lunch service is provided to all students. Hot meals at reasonable prices are available. Students who are late may be required to eat lunch in a supervised area. Should students choose to leave school property at lunch, they do so with their parent’s permission. Eating at school is a privilege; students are expected to keep the school clean and to put all waste materials in the garbage cans and recycling cans provided.

Slurpees and ice caps are not prohibited but if students have them in the building they are responsible for cleaning up any mess that is incurred.

Grade 6 Students Staying for Lunch

We provide students with the option of staying at school for lunch. Dedicated noon supervision is offered to all students in Grades 6. A noon supervision form must be filled out and noon supervision fees are charged to parents of all students who use noon supervision services. This service provides students with the opportunity to practice social skills supported by caring adult supervision.

Noon supervision at our school includes:

  • a safe and secure place for children to have lunch
  • a caring environment that fosters and maintains respectful, responsible behaviors
  • attendance will be taken and communication is made home if a student is absent
  • a drop-in service
  • access to the service, without a wait list

Each day we have teachers supervising during lunch throughout the school but only Grade 6 students will be eligible to have specific noon supervision, which will require that they sit in a dedicated place in the bistro for the first fifteen minutes of lunch. Once dismissed they must remain in the school and either be in the Learning Commons, movie room or games room.  They are not allowed to leave the school property without a note from a parent.

If parents give permission for their Grade 6 child to leave school at lunch, a written note must be provided to the office.

All parents of Grade 6 students will be required to complete a form indicating their student’s lunch plan at the beginning of the school year.

For more information visit our Noon Supervision page.

Registration Information

COVID-19 Chan​ges

  • Students are assigned to one stop based on their primary home address for general transportation; alternate stops will not be available
  • Students will be assigned a seat by the driver; students must adhere to the seating plan
