St Gabriel School Grade 4-6 Transition to Virtual Learning

April 19, 2021

Attention St Gabriel School families,

Grades 4-6 only at St Gabriel School will transition to online/virtual learning from April 20th to April 30th, 2021. This means grades 4, 5, and 6 at St Gabriel School will be closed to all students from April 20 to April 30, 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 4-6 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 Junior Transition Program (JTP) team will reach out to their families directly for more information about programming. 

Grade EEP to 3 students

In school instruction will continue as per usual from April 20 to April 30, 2021. 

All students will be scheduled to return to in school instruction on May 3, 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.
