Grade 10-12 Transition to Off-Site Learning- Father Mercredi HS

March 29, 2021

Attention Father Mercredi High School families,

Grades 10-12 only at Father Mercredi High School will transition to online/virtual learning from March 30th to April 1st, 2021. This means grades 10, 11, and 12 at Father Mercredi High School will be closed to all students from March 30 to April 1, 2021. 

This is solely due to staffing capacity issues as a result of multiple isolations due to COVID-19 positive test results in our community.

Grade 10-12 students

As you are aware, every teacher has set up an online presence to support students while at home. If you need additional support logging into Google Classroom please connect with your teacher. 

  • Please note that our Vocational Education Program will continue in class for this week- March 30 to April 1, 2021.

Grade 7-9 students

In school instruction will continue as per usual for the remainder of the week- March 23 to April 1, 2021. 

All students will be returning to in school instruction at the completion of Easter Break on April 12, 2021. 

Parent Teacher Interviews

Parent Teacher Interviews will continue as previously planned on March 30 and 31, 2021. 

Alberta Health Services continues to work closely with Fort McMurray Catholic Schools to support and manage the safety of our schools. 

We remind families to monitor for any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 using the Alberta Health Screening Questionnaire. Please remember to complete the checklist each day prior to attending school. If you or a member of your family have any of the symptoms of illness listed, please fill out the online Alberta Health Services COVID-19 self-assessment or call Health Link at 811.

The health and safety of our staff, students and community is paramount. We know this news can be distressing for families and supports are available. 

Thank you for your continued support.
