Message from your Principal
I think that we can all agree that this is an interesting time in history. What’s making it much easier to navigate is knowing that we will come together to do what’s best for our community.
This is a lengthy document with some details making complete sense to us, while others are slightly more challenging to understand. Please know that we are here to collaborate with you to make this transition as smooth as possible. We continue to have an ‘open door’ communication policy even if this means we are talking over the phone or sharing through video conferencing.
Throughout the month of September we will focus on adjusting to our new normal while working diligently to adhere to the Alberta Health standards and recommendations. While we adjust to this new normal we welcome your thoughts and feedback, and most importantly, your partnership.
Our school functions best when it’s full of laughter, learning and love. Having students return to the building is truly the best scenario for everyone in our community, and yes, there will be challenges and some failures, but also many successes. I personally am looking forward to seeing the smiles...even if they are through the eyes of a masked child.
Recently a good friend shared that, “All trails go somewhere”. This path we are on will take us where we need to go. Let’s trust that every twist, turn, switchback, and fallen obstacle will help us build the resiliency needed to support and grow our students.
See you all in September
