Friday Early Dismissals

At Midnapore School we follow a practice of “time-banking” which means we add instructional minutes to each day, Monday through Thursday, to allow teachers to be involved in professional development activities during the afternoon on Fridays. The total number of instructional hours for students does not change and continues to meet (and exceed) the required 950 instructional hours mandated by Alberta Education for Grades 1-6, and 475 instructional hours mandated for Kindergarten.

Student Supervision  

The staff provides school ground supervision at the following times throughout the school day:

  • Morning Recess  9:45 – 10:00 AM 
  • Afternoon 11:30 –12:15 PM

There is no supervision provided before or after school. In order to provide maximum safety for students, we ask that they go home directly after school. Students are not permitted to use the office phones to make after-school plans with friends. These plans need to be in place prior to school starting.

Students who go home for lunch should not return until 12:10 PM at the earliest.

​Contact Information Updates

Please notify the school office immediately with any changes of address, telephone numbers (home, business and/or cell), email address or emergency contact numbers. It is critical that we have a current record of contact information on file so we can reach you or other emergency contacts. Please also be sure to provide us with a current copy of any custody agreements.​​

Concerns & Complaints

We know that the success of your student is dependent on a strong partnership between families and the CBE. If you have a concern, it can usually be addressed at the classroom level. Your first step is to arrange to speak privately with your child’s teacher. If you feel your issue is still unresolved, please contact your principal. If you and the school are unable to find a resolution, please see our Concerns & Complaints​ page for additional information, including the process to contact your Area Director. ​​​​
