SEPTEMBER 2020 SCHOOL RE-ENTRY
Our Division is preparing to welcome students and staff back into classrooms this September, after the Government of Alberta announced that in-school classes will resume. We will continue to take direction from Alberta’s chief medical officer of health and the Government of Alberta. We will be following the guidance outlined in the government’s 2020-2021 School Re-Entry Plan for our return to classes.
The safety and well-being of students, families and staff is our greatest priority. We’re taking new precautions to protect everyone’s health. Staff in our schools will be ready to support students and families through the transition.
Please view our MCKEE SCHOOL RE-ENTRY STRATEGY 2020-21 for a clearer picture of what things will look like at our school this year.
As we prepare for the 2020-21 school year, we recognize that in-person classes might not be the right choice for all families and staff, depending on their personal circumstances and well-being. That is why we are offering choice. Our goal is to ensure all students receive a high-quality education, which is why we will offer Distance and Online learning throughout the 2020-21 school year.
A QUARTERLY SYSTEM FOR 2020-21
Families will be able to decide, at four key times throughout the school year, whether their child will attend school in person or learn at home through online instruction. To offer this choice, we are organizing the school year into four instructional quarters (two-month periods of learning).
- Quarter 1: September 3–November 10
- Quarter 2: November 16–January 29
- Quarter 3: February 1–April 20
- Quarter 4: April 21–June 29
HOW IT WORKS
Once families have reviewed their school re-entry strategy, they should sign in to their parent account on SchoolZone to confirm whether their child(ren) will return to in-person instruction at school or if they will choose online learning at home. For the first quarter of the school year, we ask that families back their choice by Friday, August 21, 2020.
Families should follow these step-by-step instructions once they are signed into their parent account on SchoolZone:
- Click the Forms menu option at the top of your screen
- Choose Additional Forms
- Select Family Choice - Quarter 1 (click anywhere on the row)
- Review the information sheet then click Respond at the bottom of the page. (Depending on the type of device you're using, you may need to download the information sheet.)
- Check the boxes on the right side of the screen to complete your choice
- Click Submit
- Complete the form for each child enrolled at Edmonton Public Schools
Families who do not have access to SchoolZone should reach out to their school through email with their selection by Friday, August 21, 2020. Please provide your child’s name and grade, what option they will be selecting, in-person or online, and include family choice in your email subject line. The Division will organize resources and staff to support the choices that families make.
Three weeks before the start of each quarter, families will be asked to indicate their choice for the following quarter. No matter what choice they make, the student will remain enrolled and connected to the school where they registered or pre-enrolled for the 2020-21 school year.
