January 21 - Operational Shift - COVID update

January 21, 2022


Dear Parents/Guardians,

We hope that this letter finds you and your family healthy and well. The school board has made the decision to proceed with the operational shift to online learning for Gr. 7-9 students as was described earlier in the week. Please see the link below to view a message from Superintendent Kathleen Finnigan regarding this decision. The online classes will begin on Monday, January 24, 2022 for grades 7-9 only.  Grades 5-6 will continue to come to school. This transition will last for 10 calendar days so Gr. 7-9  students would return to school on Thursday, February 3, 2022. 

Message from Mrs. Kathleen Finnigan - Superintendent of Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools


Information for Online Learning 

  • Our school will remain open and office hours will remain the same (8:00am - 4:00pm). 
  • Grade 7-9 students will be expected to be a part of their Google Classrooms and complete learning activities as provided by the teachers. This might look different in each grade. Students will follow their normal classroom schedule/timetable, signing into each of their classes through Google Meet.  Please note that January 31 is a P.D day so students will not have online classes as the teachers will be Professional Development.
  • Here is an outline of the timetable day rotation for the 10 days of online classes:

Jan 24 - Day 5 - No classes - Computer/Material pick up

Monday, January 31 - P.D Day - No school

Jan 25 - Day 1- - First Day of 7-9 online Classes

Tuesday, Feb 1 - Day 5

Jan 26 - Day 2

Wednesday, Feb 2 - Day 1

Jan 27 - Day 3

Thursday, Feb 3 - Return back to school  Day 2

Jan 28 - Day 4

    • Middle school students will continue to focus on the following subjects in their Google Meets (ELA, Social Studies, Math, Science, Religion, PE/Wellness, Health). Exploratory classes will not be offered.  On Day 1-4, extra support will be offered from 10:51 - 12:02 p.m. in a manner that teachers coordinate. For our French Immersion students, their combined course load would be (FLA, ELA, Social Studies, Math, Science, Religion, PE/Wellness, Health).
