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.

Planning is underway for what the 2020-21 school year will look like for our students, staff and families. The CBE has created an internal task force with representatives from every service unit to lead the planning for different scenarios. All of our decisions will be guided by the advice of the province’s chief medical officer of health and Alberta Education guidelines. The safety and well being of our students and staff will come first in any decisions we make. More information will be provided to families before the first day of classes on Tuesday, Sept. 1, 2020.

Back to School Information

First Day of Classes 

The school office is open to parents for registration only, beginning on Thurs. Aug. 27, 2020 (9:00) am. 

There is an optional drop-in for new students on Mon. Aug. 31, 2020 9:00-10:30 am (note that teachers will be in meetings). Parents are encouraged to practice riding Calgary Transit to school with their students on this day.

The first day of classes is Tues. Sept. 1, 2020 (8:20 am), please note that any information contained here is open to changes as per COVID-19 direction. Note that the front of the school (Chilcotin Road) is a drop-off zone only. No vehicles may be left unattended. Upon arrival to the main foyer on Tues. Sept.1 (8:00-8:20) maps will outline grade level classroom locations in each wing of the school. Posters will be visible in each wing with the grade level homeroom number, the homeroom teacher name, and the first name, last initial of each student in the homeroom. Staff will be available to address questions and direct students at all entrances to the school.

Grade 6 students will report to the main gym upon entering the school, where they will be directed to their homeroom teacher, who will be holding a large sign. *Class lists have been prepared through the careful lens of teachers working together in teams to ensure the best possible classroom composite. Parent requests received until March 2019 were considered, if they were rooted in a strong instructional or social/emotional rationale. Changes to the homeroom class composites will not be made on the first day of school, as teachers and administrators will be focused on the reintegration of all our students.
