GPCSD Fall Re-Entry 2020-2021
Available Schooling Options
2) Online Learning through St. John Bosco: Families will have the opportunity to select online learning as a potential option for existing GPCSD students. This approach to learning will be fairly hands on for both parents and students. Communication with your current school will be provided and maintained, but you will not be able to participate in school based activities. Multi grade classrooms may be a reality.

Term 2: November 30 to March 12
Students wanting to change between online learning and the classroom environment would give notice on or before Feb 26 to start ‘new’ classes on March 15.

Message from Board Chair & Superintendent of Schools
We would like to thank everyone for your continuing work to prepare for the upcoming school year. I am confident schools will be ready to once again welcome students into the classrooms.
Health officials continue to evaluate public health practices in other jurisdictions that have returned to school earlier and will update the health guidance if necessary.
We are also making arrangements, if the need arises at any point during the school year, to transition to partial in-school learning or at home learning. Any decision to transition will be made by the government based on the advice of the Chief Medical Officer of Health or local Medical Officer of Health while working with the impacted school authority.
As part of Alberta Education’s commitment in the re-entry plan to bolster online resources, they have launched a new Student Learning Hub on new.learnalberta.ca. It is available for parents, students, and teachers to more easily access educational materials to support development of student literacy and numeracy, and provides health and wellness information.
Everyone has a role to play to keep students and staff safe. To help prepare for the new school year we have an online toolkit including school posters, videos, guides for parents and resources for schools in various languages. Please share with your school community.
