Good afternoon Fort McMurray Catholic Schools families,

As you are most likely aware, the provincial government updated their guidance documentation for the 2021/22 school year this morning. The guidance document can be found online.

Fort McMurray Catholic Schools will be reviewing this information and we will reach out to families again next week.

We will continue to update you as the 2021/22 school year quickly approaches. For the latest information families are encouraged to check out our 2021/22 Registration and Admission Guide (
