​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.

Staggered Entry - Week of September 1, 2020

Dear Ron Southern Families,

We are so excited to see all our lovely students and families in person.  I am sure it feels like a very long time for everyone.  A special welcome to all our new students! Although some Ron Southern families have elected to participate in hub learning for September – and will not be participating in face-to-face classes at this time - you are all still part of our school and will continue to receive weekly emails. 

Over the summer months, you will likely have been keeping abreast of the national, provincial, and Calgary Board of Education (CBE) plans for a safe return to school. The CBE has been actively engaged with Alberta Education and Alberta Health Services to understand and execute the many new processes that are needed to set us up for a successful re-entry.  The final details of the Ron Southern re-entry plan will be circulated to parents on Friday, August 28, 2020 when we have all of the needed information to communicate with you. 

We did want you to know that in order to ensure a safe and organized start to our school year, we have decided to stagger the entry for the first two days of school except for our students in the EES program as well as our full day kindergarten students. This will lessen the amount of people on the playground and allow teachers to give each student more individualized support around our new safety protocols.  The schedule will be as follows:

Tuesday, September 1, 2020: All students with last names starting with A-L

  • Students in morning kindergarten and grades 1-6 with last names A-L attend
  • All EES students attend
  • NO SCHOOL FOR FULL DAY KINDERGARTEN

Wednesday, September 2, 2020: All students with last names starting with M-Z

  • Students in morning kindergarten and grades 1-6 with last names M-Z attend
  • All EES students attend
  • ALL FULL DAY KINDERGARTEN students attend

Thursday, September 3, 2020 – All students A-Z in attendance

  • All Morning Kindergarten and Grade 1-6 students and EES students attend
  • NO SCHOOL FOR FULL DAY KINDERGARTEN

Friday, September 4, 2020 – All students A-Z in attendance

  • All Morning Kindergarten and Grade 1-6 students and EES students attend
  • NO SCHOOL FOR FULL DAY KINDERGARTEN

Reminder dismissal time on Friday is at 12:02pm

Sincere regards,

Zoe Serediuk, on behalf of the Ron Southern staff
