Lisa C. COVID-19, Health and wellness, Settlement & Community News, Updates

The extended break will give school authorities time to gather additional data to assess staffing implications and the potential operational impacts of the current COVID-19 situation.

To assist with the safe return to classes, Alberta Health and Municipal Affairs’ PPE Task Force will also deliver the following to schools, starting the week of January 10:

  • 8.6 million rapid tests
  • 16.5 million masks

To further support high school students whose learning is disrupted by this extension, January diploma exams have been cancelled. A decision will be made later in 2022 regarding April and June diploma exams.

Word of the Day:

Staffing: the action of providing an organization or business with staff.
