General Information

Did you have an ill or isolating child at home during exam week? Don't worry, we have a plan...

Our goal at SSS it to give all students an opportunity to demonstrate their learning in their respective classes despite COVID isolation requirements. At this time, we wish all students who are ill and/or isolating a speedy recovery. Once you are fully recovered we will make arrangements for you to complete your exams keeping in mind the following:



  1. We expect that ALL students will write their final exams.
  2. If a student was not able to come in due to illness/isolation we will either: a) delay their exam to later in the exam week, or b) if they cannot return by the end of the semester we will input a zero as a placeholder for the final exam mark and once they return, and are able to write, we will arrange a time to complete the assessment.
  3. Teachers will prepare an alternate exam that is the same difficulty and format as the original.
  4. Once the final assessment is completed the school will send the updated mark to Alberta Education for immediate update.

Vaccinations

An important step we can take to ensure the health and safety of our community is to get vaccinated against COVID-19. Children aged 5 and up are eligible to receive a first and second dose of an approved vaccine in Alberta. Peace Wapiti Public School Division will support Alberta Health Services as it runs temporary vaccination clinics in schools.


Immunization is voluntary. Peace Wapiti Public School District schools will not allow vaccinations for students without parental consent in our schools. They will be available in for eligible students in Grades 7-12 and staff.


More information will be provided to parents and guardians, parental consent will be required for in-school immunizations.


**Due to privacy laws, we cannot ask or disclose if students and staff are vaccinated.**
