​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 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. 

Back to School Information

First Day of Classes

Our first day of classes is Sept. 1, 2020 and the school office is open to parents on Aug 27, 2020. Your child’s teacher will contact you via email to introduce themselves in the afternoon on Thursday Aug 29 . 

Kindergarten

The first day of classes we will have a staggered entry Kindergarten as follows:

Staggered entry will be Sept. 1 and 2. On these two days half the students will come on Sept. 1 for regular school hours and the other half will attend on Sept. 2 for regular school hours. This allows students to adjust to the kindergarten day with only half the students in attendance as well as to begin forming relationships and learning routines. 

If your child’s last name starts with the letters A-L, they will come to school on Sept. 1 and stay at home on Sept. 2.  If your child’s last name starts with the letters M-Z, they will come to school on Sept. 2 and stay at home on Sept. 1.  

Please meet your teacher at the North East entrance – see map.

** Please ensure you drop off/pick up your child to school on his or her staggered entry days.

What Does My Child Need to Bring to School?

Please be sure to send your child to school with:

  • A backpack large enough to hold a library book, notices and a snack bag.
  • A small, healthy snack such as a piece of fruit with cheese and crackers. As well, you may want to send in a water bottle, (no juice). We ask that you do not send in foods with peanuts or peanut products as we are an allergy aware school.
  • Labeled, Indoor running shoes with Velcro fasteners (the shoes will be left at school). The Ken Taylor Fundraising Association has an ongoing fundraiser with Mabels Labels. If you would like to purchase these label please see the following link: Mabels Labels
  • An extra set of clothing kept in your child’s back pack (accidents happen)
  • Comfortable, play clothing that your child can fasten and unfasten. As well, please send in clothing that is appropriate for the outdoors as our students will often go outside.
  • **All clothing, backpacks, shoes and snack containers should be labelled with your child’s name.**
