Leduc Composite High School students temporarily move to at-home learning
The Alberta Minister of Education has granted Black Gold School Division’s request to temporarily move Leduc Composite High School (LCHS) students to at-home learning, given the increased number of students and staff in quarantine due to a spike in COVID-19 cases.
LCHS will move to the at-home learning model beginning Friday, April 16, 2021, and will continue in this mode until Thursday, April 29, 2021. As April 30 is a PD day, regular classes will resume on May 3, 2021.
This period of at-home learning will be the same as how classes were delivered during the at-home learning period in December. School staff is fully equipped for delivering this mode of instruction and anticipate a smooth transition.
This measure has been implemented to keep both students and staff safe, and was undertaken in consultation with LCHS administration. “This decision was not made lightly, and we firmly believe it is in the best interest of both students and staff safety and for student learning,” said Superintendent of Schools Bill Romanchuk. “Every school community is unique, and any further measures taken to help decrease the spread will take individual circumstances into account.”
Students will require the use of a personal computer or a Chromebook at home; a smartphone is not sufficient. Students who do not have access to a computer or Chromebook at home can sign one out from the school.
“We know that many students are feeling anxious during these uncertain times; therefore, the school will continue to offer support for both academic and personal counseling needs,” said LCHS Principal Brad Clarke.
