Traffick and Safety

Greetings MPS Community Members and Families,

I know that the safety and security of students is a top concern for Parents and Guardians. At Mountain Park School, we take student safety very seriously. The wellbeing of our students is a top priority for us as well. Over the past several days, I have been out monitoring the cross-walks at the corner of Mt. Douglas Close and Mt. McKenzie Drive. What has become apparent is that during morning drop off and afternoon pick up, that the traffic at this intersection is highly congested and very busy. This has created safety concerns for our students as they cross both streets at this intersection.

In order to help alleviate these concerns, I would like to request that parents and guardians avoid entering Mt. Douglas Close when dropping off and/or picking up their students. There is plenty of space along Mt. McKenzie Drive to stop and drop off/pick up your student(s) safely. One suggestion is to designate a pre-determined location with your student(s) along Mt. McKenzie Drive for the rest of the year, keeping in mind to avoid the yellow school bus zone. This would help prevent a large number of vehicles entering and leaving Mt. Douglas Close during peak times and limit the number of vehicles moving through both cross-walks, making crossing these streets safer for our students.

I want to thank you in advance for working with us to keep our students safe. Your patience and understanding is greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

David Sparrow, Principal​​

Electronic Report Cards

Dear Parents and Guardians,

 
It is that time of year to report student achievement through a report card.
 
Electronic Report cards will be available for viewing online on February 1, 2022 via myCBE/PowerSchool.
 
We are asking you to view the report card through MyCBE/PowerSchool. Once logged in, you will see an additional tab titled “Report Card”. Select this tab to view the report card. Should you wish to have a printed report card, please contact the main office at the school to arrange a time for you to safely collect it from the school during school hours.
 
If you find a discrepancy please contact the teacher in question directly via email. 

 
Thank You!​

A reminder that we send out a "weekly update" via email every Friday during the school year with important information and dates.

Have a Healthy and Restful Summer!

​Dear Wolverines,

It is hard to believe that the school year is already coming to a close. This year has truly been a whirlwind and like no other!  As we wrap up, I would like to personally extend a “thank you” to our incredible school staff members who work very hard on a daily basis to guide our students and help them flourish. We would be hard pressed to find a more compassionate, resilient and devoted group of teachers.  I would also like to thank our Parent Council for the support they have provided to help enrich our school and build a sense of community and belonging for our students. To all our parents and guardians, I would like to say thank you for trusting us with your children and for your continued support in order to provide a safe and inclusive environment and a quality education for our students. On behalf of the staff at Mountain Park School we wish everyone a very cheerful, healthy and safe summer break.  We look forward to hearing about all the fun and exciting learning experiences your families have enjoyed over the summer!  

Next year will be an exiting year of renewal and revival!

Until then, Stay healthy and safe,

David Sparrow​, Principal

Update

Dear Families,

 

The staff at MPS wanted to take this opportunity to check in with all of you. We recognize that this third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic has brought upon many of us, another period of change and stress. Please know that we have the ability to be flexible in the ways that we support your child(ren). The physical and mental health and wellness of our student body is a high priority for us. If your teen or pre-teen needs some support, we want to remind you that help is available everyday through connect teen services. More information can be found here: https://calgaryconnecteen.com/

 

We encourage each of our students to attend their daily classes and follow along with class instruction. However, we understand that for some families, multiple competing schedules and juggling technology at home can be a challenge. If your child is unable to attend a synchronous lesson, support and lesson materials are still available online using D2L. When it comes to assessments, please remember that our teachers use a body of evidence gathered over the duration of each course to inform you about their progress.  Please don't hesitate to have your child reach out to their teachers if they need support. ​

Reminder:

Thursday, May 20 is an early dismissal day and classes will conclude at 12:55 pm.

Friday, May 21 is a non-instructional day and there will not be classes.

We are looking forward to the day when we can welcome everyone back into our fantastic school community. In the meanwhile, please stay safe and well.


Kind Regards,

Dave Sparrow

Principal

Happy New Year and Welcome Back!!


Greetings MPS Families!

From all of us at MPS, Happy New Year and welcome back from winter break. I am writing to review and remind parents, guardians and students regarding our expectations for online learning starting on January 4th.

First off, to all our HUB Families, some teachers are linked to schools other than MPS. For some of these teachers, Monday, January 4 is a PD day and teachers will be involved in their own learning and not offering synchronous learning. Please log into Brightspace/D2L to find out what your teachers' plans are for the day (January 4) and follow their directions. January 4 is not a PD day for MPS and thus learning will start as expected for MPS HUB students and MPS HUB teachers following the same pre-winter break schedules.

For all of our grades 5-9 "in-person" students, January 4th will be a regular school day utilizing our virtual learning platforms. This will be a continuation of online learning for grades 7-9 and a new adventure for grades 5 and 6. Teachers went over their specific expectations with grades 5 and 6 students before the winter break so please refer to their instructions (on Brightspace/D2L) in order to understand how each individual teacher is running their online classrooms. Please contact each teacher directly via email if you have any questions or concerns. Click here to access teacher email addresses. Ms. Graham will be teaching all of Mr. Davis's classes from Janary 4th - January 29th and will be using Mr. Davis's D2L/Brightspace courses to start. Please click here for her email address. Expectations for grades 7-9 are consistent with what was happening before the winter break. One common expectation is that every student checks in with their teacher(s) at the beginning of every class for attendance and to participate. If a student is ill or cannot attend an online class for any reason please email the attendance mailbox directly and cc any associated teacher (MPSattendance@cbe.ab.ca).   We will be following a week 1 timetable with the full compliment of option and P.E. classes running as well. Please follow and respect each specific teacher's expectations regarding their online classroom environment. In summary, every student in grades 5-9 is expected to be present in their online classroom(s) 6 times a day for the week of January 4-8, 2021. You can access teacher names and each specific students schedule on Power School. Please refer to the attached PDF document for our MPS bell schedule/class start and end times.

In person learning resumes on January 11, 2021 and we will be operating under the same COVID-19 guidelines and saftety protocols as in the fall.

Entry/Exit door locations and protocols will also be in plase. Please click here to review our re-entry document and safety protocols or refer to the attached PDF documents. We are very excited to have the students return to in person learning!!

Thank You for your time and attention!
