​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.

First Day of Classes

Our first day of classes is Tuesday, Sept. 1 2020 and our school office is open on Thursday, Aug. 27, 2020.

Staggered Entry

We are beginning our school year by limiting the number of students entering the school over the first two days. The purpose of the plan is:

  • To ease the transition of students into school,
  • To spend time with smaller groups familiarizing them with our health measures,
  • To facilitate physical distancing while teaching the protocols of our health measures.

Because of bussing, staggered entry days are full day.

The students have been divided into 2 groups according to their last names for the staggered entry:

  • A – K come Tuesday, September 1
  • L – Z come Wednesday, September 2
  • All students come Thursday, September 3 and Friday, September 4

Each grade will have a designated entrance and exit. On the first 2 staggered days, there will be designated spots for students to line up (maintaining a 6ft distance between students) near their designated door. The following doors have been designated:

  • Grade 5 – East side door
  • Grade 6 – West side door
  • Grade 7 – West back door
  • Grade 8 – Front Door
  • Grade 9 – East back door
  • PLP – Front door

Noon Supervision

All Grade 4, 5 and 6 students who are registered for lunchroom are required to eat in their designated areas. To register and pay for the lunchroom supervision program, parents can visit their MyCBE / PowerSchool account or register using the form sent home at the beginning of the school year.

Students opting out of lunchtime supervision are to proceed home and are to return at 12:35.  Remaining at school or returning early is considering choosing to participate in our lunchtime supervision program. 

Assigned Teachers 

On September 3, as students arrive they are directed to the main gymnasium for those in grades 5-9 or to the auxiliary gym for Grade 4 students.  At this time, older students will be able to find class lists while grade 4 students will be sorted into homerooms with their teachers.

Registration Information

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

Our school office opens on Aug. 27, 2020 for registration.

​Yellow School Bus Tra​nsportation

Yellow school bus routes for the 2020-21 school year are created over the summer and based on the addresses submitted before the pre-registration deadline in May. While CBE Transportation continues to accept pre-registrations, these will not be considered until route changes are done after Thanksgiving.

COVID-19 Chan​ges

  • Riding the Bus Flowchart and Checklist
  • Only registered students have bus route and stop information provided through MyCBE / PowerSchool; this is to control the number of students accessing a bus in order to support maintaining healthy distances
  • Only registered students should use transportation services
  • Students are assigned to one stop based on their primary home address for general transportation; alternate stops will not be available
  • Students will be assigned a seat by the driver; students must adhere to the seating plan
  • Students must complete the AHS health assessment every morning before leaving for the bus stop. Students or family members with COVID-19 symptoms must stay home.
  • Masks are mandatory for students K-12, including on school buses
  • All service providers will follow Alberta Education and Alberta Health COVID-19 guidelines
Please visit our Covid-19 Frequently Asked Questions page, Transportation Section for more information.​
