Due to the high number of staff and students that are impacted by either a positive COVID-19 determination or are close contacts, Stettler Elementary School will be transitioning to at-home learning for Grades 3 to 6.
For Grades Pre-Kindergarten/Kindergarten to Grade 2, classes will continue in-school.
Stettler Elementary will be shifting grades temporarily to at-home learning beginning Friday, April 29 through to and including Friday, May 14th for Grades 3 to 6, according to Clearview Public Schools.
“In collaboration with Alberta Health Services and Alberta Education, we will reassess whether we will move to in-class or continue at-home learning the weekend prior to Monday, May 17th, 2021. At this time, we are planning for students to be in-class on Monday, May 17, 2021.
To assist in the transition, at-home learning will begin on Monday, May 3rd.
“Friday, April 30 will be a non-student day for students in Grade 3 to 6, to allow school staff to plan and prepare for the next two weeks. For Grades Pre-Kindergarten/Kindergarten to Grade 2, there is no change at this time.”
“Instruction and learning opportunities will be offered using a combination of online and paper-based materials. Classroom teachers will provide a detailed schedule so that students will have direct access to them at specified times during the day. This will ensure that we will be able to keep moving forward with the curriculum and continue the strong learning that is happening within classes. The specific details of this class schedule will be communicated to your child in a live Google Meet or by a phone call on Friday, April 30th or Monday, May 3rd with their classroom or homeroom teacher.
“We remind all parents/guardians to continue to closely monitor your children for any signs or symptoms of COVID-19. The Alberta Health daily checklist can be found here. Please remember to complete the checklist each day, whether children are attending school and/or getting on the school bus or not. As a reminder, if you/your child has any of the symptoms of illness listed on the Alberta Health daily checklist, please fill out the online Alberta Health Services COVID-19 self-assessment or call Health Link at 811 and stay home/keep your child at home.
“While this is a challenging time, we continue to trust that we can lean on one another for support and companionship. We are in this together and will be sending updates to families as information becomes available.
