 ***View Our School's Calendar for kindergarten alternating Fridays and other important upcoming events and dates.*** 

 At this time we are limiting the number of adults in the building so are asking you to:

  • Teach and model for your child, social distancing outside on the compound.
  • Let your child know that parents and caregivers cannot come into the school.
  • Plan to meet your child at a set meeting location away from the door at the end of the day,.
  • Supervise your own children on the compound if needed as we are not providing regular supervision on those 2 staggered entry days, however, we are asking parents to not stay once they have dropped off their child to their teacher so that we can limit the amount of people that students and staff are exposed to, as well as provide everyone with more space to physically distance.
  • Ring the buzzer at the front door if you need to drop off medication or have an emergency. A member of support staff or office staff will help with your requests.

Do not park in our parking lot or in the bus zone. The ‘Kiss and Go’ zone is available for quick drop off only, no parking allowed. 

Soft Entry Starting on September 3rd and onward 

Soft entry is when students enter the building starting at 8:55 am and go right to their classroom. This allows
us to limit and regulate the number of children coming in at a time.

School Supply Lists  

School supplies are distributed by teachers on the week of Sept. 1, 2021. Other supplies needed from home will be:

  • Back pack that will hold a lunch and agenda or for kindergarten a snack and a folder.
  • Good runners / sneakers for indoor shoes that will not mark the floor.

School Calendar

We are a school that follows the traditional calendar. View Our School's Calendar for upcoming events and dates.  

For CBE calendars, please visit www.cbe.ab.ca/registration/calendars.

Noon Supervision 

For more information visit our Noon Supervision page.

Class Lists

Class lists were developed at the end of June. Please be aware that class lists may be adjusted once we have confirmed numbers of students attending.

Before and After School

Before and after school, school staff will be assigned to supervise areas outside school entrances. This supervision will help support physical distancing and is part of our district’s COVID-19 Re-entry Strategy. With this in mind, schools will not be assigning staff to supervise playground equipment before or after school. To support student safety and to decrease the mixing of cohort groups, this equipment will be off limits to students during these times.

Registration Information

Please visit our How to Register page for registration details and forms.

Our school office opens on Aug. 27 for registration.

​​​Yellow School Bus Tra​nsportation

Yellow school bus routes for the 2021-22 school year are created o​ver the summer and based on the addresses submitted before the pre-registration deadline in June. Transportation continues to accept registrations after the deadline; however, students are added to the closest existing stop with available space. Processing times could be up to six weeks at the beginning of the school year due to volume.

More information about 2021-22 transportation service levels and proposed fees are posted on the CBE website.

Your bus stop location and time will be available in your MyCBE / PowerSchool account by mid-August.

Conditional riders can also register using MyCBE / PowerSchool. Applications will be considered after eligible riders registrations have been processed.
