RC Mac Community News

June 22-24

Hello Parents,

Congratulations to all Grade 5 students! Our wonderful Grade 5's have made it to the very last week of elementary school. We are looking forward to seeing each family online for a MS Teams Leaving Ceremony this afternoon. Thank you to our parent committee for all the hard work preparing and organizing for the Formal Farewells event. Thank you to our Grade 5 teachers Ms. Coomer and Mr. Fitzgerald for all that you have done to make this final week a memorable, special occasion.

On behalf of the RC MacDonald Staff- we thank you for your support during this term as schools all over the province and the world attempted to provide education remotely with very short notice due to the COVID19 pandemic. We know the situation has been challenging for many families in our community.

As you may be aware the Ministry of Education has outlined 5 Stages of responses to the COVID-19 pandemic for public education (see link below). What school will look like in September will likely not be finalized until late August. Please continue to monitor the School District 43 web page and Twitter site for information. Our school webpage is now updated with a regular set of 20-21 dates for the next school year as well - pro d days, open house, conferences, hip hop and concert are all listed for possible planning purposes.

I will communicate with the RC MacDonald community at the end of August to provide the most up-to-date school-based information for September start-up. We do hope for a ‘regular’ return to school but we are preparing for any possible stage of return and ask that you consider this for your September planning and beyond.

While this has been a very challenging end to the school year for students, families, and staff, we hope that everyone has an opportunity re-charge and remain healthy. We wish all our families and their children who are moving on best wishes in their new endeavors and we look forward to working with our new and returning families when the new school year begins.

Have a wonderful, safe and healthy summer.
