2020/21 School Year Update

As many of you are aware, this morning Alberta Education Minister Adriana LaGrange and Alberta’s Chief Medical of Health Dr Deena Hinshaw announced masks will be mandated in 2020/21 school re-entry.

Fort McMurray Catholic Schools will amend our relaunch strategies to include mandatory masks for students in grades 4-12. This will include staff in our schools, and all visitors to schools. According to this updated guidance, mask use for EEP to Grade 3 students will continue to be optional. We recommend the use of masks for all students in all grades in our schools.

We understand our students, staff, and families may have questions. We encourage you to refer to official sources.
