As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation continues to evolve, local schools want to assure our students, staff and families that they are continuing to monitor the developments and follow the advice and direction of Alberta Health Services. It is their main priority to provide healthy, safe, caring and welcoming environments for students and staff in all of our communities.
