Grade 10 Students to Transition to Online Learning
April 13, 2021
We have been notified of a number of positive cases of COVID-19 that have been diagnosed with individuals associated in grade 10 and 12 at Joane Cardinal-Schubert High School.
Many staff members have been identified as a close contact of one of these cases and will be required to isolate at home for up to 14 days.
Due to operational capacity issues, the decision has been made to move ALL grade 10 students to online classes from Wednesday, April 14, until Wednesday, April 21, 2021. This will help to ensure we are able to provide focused instructional support for students and allow for consistent instruction in all courses.
In-person classes will resume for all students on Thursday, April 22, 2021.
Our school will remain open to in-person learning for grades 11 students only, and we are working closely with AHS to ensure necessary measures continue to be in place to protect all staff and students. The school will undergo additional cleaning this weekend.
Continuity of learning for grade 10 students
All students will be supported in maintaining course work during the designated period through D2L by Brightspace. Students will not join Hub online learning. All students are expected to continue to engage in learning during this period of at home learning. We will follow our regular bell schedule virtually as we have done previously this year.
Students, if you are feeling anxious, have academic concerns about your learning, or need additional supports please know that your teachers and myself are available to assist you. Please reach out.
For students who need access to technology, please connect with Mrs. Rand directly at email@example.com . We do have access to a few chrome books to loan out for this time.
The school will complete the process of contacting each family affected by the positive cases early this evening, and AHS will be following up only with those individuals.
If your child has any of the symptoms of illness listed on the Alberta Health daily checklist, please complete the online Alberta Health Services COVID-19 self-assessment or call Health Link at 811.
We appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we take these additional measures to continue to support student learning. Please contact me directly with any questions or concerns.
