Class Cancellation Update 4
Good morning everyone!
Thank you to everyone who has made and kept appointments to visit the school so far! We have really enjoyed knowing that those connected to our school are doing what they can to be well.
Students can still book appointments ahead of spring break today and tomorrow. Visits to the school must be by appointment. You can make appointments in one of three ways:
- by calling 780-428-1420 ext. 211,
- by text at 780-224-9382,
Here are the reasons students may need to visit today or tomorrow:
- Students who have to pick up Work Experience.
- If you have personal items here that you want to pick up.
Course Work Progress
Progress Reports: Our staff members are working on assessing all course work completed to this point and will have report cards ready as scheduled for April 9th. We will determine the safest way to distribute report cards based on the information we have closer to that date, so stay tuned!
Course work: Course work solutions for students are coming after spring break. Since students are currently not able to attend in-person classes, we are considering all options to make necessary course work available for students so that it can be completed and assessed safely. When a strategy is in place after spring break, we will communicate it in all of our social media with instructions of how to participate.
Stuck At Home and Need a Stretch?
One of the biggest challenges we face right now is how to stay well when routines are disrupted. Luckily, great people in our community are cleverly using spaces online to provide ideas, tips, tricks and exercises that you can use to maintain some routines or to create new ones.
One of those people is our friend Jennifer Neilsen of Iron Hide Woodworks. Jennifer comes to our school weekly to share her professional and very grounded yoga experience with our students. Since many of you may be at home with limited space to exercise, we agreed that this short video may be a welcome prompt to many in our circle to inject a little soothing movement into their days away from school.
For those who want a little more in this vein, Jennifer has also kindly shared some links to some of the great studios who are making classes available to people stuck at home.
Accessing Health Care – New App
Babylon by TELUS Health is a service already available in British Columbia via a free downloadable app. The app can serve as a new tool for Albertans to access health-care information and support in response to COVID-19 – from anywhere in the province. Albertans can use the service to check symptoms, book appointments, see a doctor, and get prescriptions and referrals for diagnostic imaging and specialists – all covered by Alberta Health Care.
