Working together to protect our schools from COVID-19
Black Gold School Division (BGSD) is firmly committed to the health and safety of our students and staff, and parents/guardians should be reassured that our schools are meeting Alberta Health Services (AHS) guidelines in providing a safe environment for student learning.
As reported cases of COVID-19 in our communities are rising, we are strongly encouraging students and their families to remain vigilant and ensure they are following the public health guidance, both at school and in other areas of their daily lives. While there was early success in flattening the curve in Alberta, recent outbreaks are occurring at an alarming rate.
Should this increase in outbreaks continue, AHS may require us to transition from Alberta Education’s Scenario 1 to Scenario 2 with short notice.
BGSD is currently implementing Scenario 1, and if we all work together to protect each other and our schools from the virus, we can continue with the relative calm and stability of Scenario 1, with minimal disruptions to student learning. Please refer to the letter dated November 5, 2020, to parents/guardians for more info…
