Spring 2021


Semester 2 seems to have gone by in a blink of an eye! During this time, we have had many successes and lots to celebrate. Several students completed their high school requirements and will now enter post secondary or have found employment. Others completed a successful semester of courses and will now move forward to new classes. COVID-19 continues to have its toll on us but we have persevered and made it through another school year. As we finish the school year and look forward to summer, I wish you all the best. Please continue to be safe and cautious. I know this year has been tough. COVID-19 caused us to “do school" is a very different way. As people become vaccinated and our environment becomes a little safer, we are hopeful school will return to a more normal setting. We are hopeful we will be able to offer you school experiences that allow us to celebrate in person, make changes to your timetables and share a meal together. Just be together!

 

Please take care of yourselves and each other. Relax and enjoy summer the best way you can and we will see you in September!

Dear Louise Dean Families

am looking forward to welcoming our school community to the 2020-21 school year. I want to assure you we are doing everything possible to ensure the health and safety of all our community members.

 As you are aware on July 21, Education Minister Adriana LaGrange announced that all schools across the province will return to classes under scenario one – in-school classes resume (near normal with health measures). In response, plans are well underway in our school to welcome our community of students and their children, as we adhere to current health guidelines.

 CBE's Scenario 1 Information can be found on our website and outlines the measures we are taking to provide for the health and safety of our students. Please refer to this document for detailed information on health measures, physical set-up of schools, cleaning of schools, daily operation of schools and transportation. The actions described in the document follow the guidelines provided by Alberta Education's K-12 School Re-entry COVID-19 information: Guidance for schools re-entry scenario 1. We continue to refine information in our re-entry planning based on provincial and CBE guidance.

Please visit our school website https://school.cbe.ab.ca/school/louisedean/ for information on the actions and processes that are being applied to the specific context of our school.

 

Sincerely,

Helen Colbourne
