Dear Parents and Guardians,
We hope everyone had a great summer and we look forward to seeing our students on September 1. Our staff is eager to get the year started, we are excited to have our new and returning students join us this year!
Teachers will be sending out welcome emails on August 27, if you have not received an email prior to August 30 please contact the office. This email will contain important details regarding the entry and dismissal on the first day of school. Details such as which door your child is expected to enter and exit from the school each day and where to meet your child's teacher will be included in the email.
This year, we still have a number of health measures in place due to Covid-19. The measures are very similar to the measures that we had last year. Students will be in cohorts and classes will have a designated door in which to enter and exit the school. We ask that parents complete the daily check list for symptoms each day, if your child has any symptoms we ask you to keep them home. Students are expected to wear a mask when entering the building, in hallways and in class. Teachers will provide mask breaks during the day, lunch times will be staggered to reduce contact between cohorts of students. For more general information, please go to https://www.cbe.ab.ca/news-centre/Pages/2021-22-school-re-entry-information.aspx. Many of these measures will be re-evaluated at the end of September and may change. We will also be sending out more information specific to our school entry plan early next week. If you have any questions after reading the general information from the CBE, please contact the office.
We understand that there is a lot of uncertainty with Covid-19 and how it may impact our school year, please be assured the staff at Kenneth D. Taylor will work hard to make it a successful year for students!
