January Agenda


MyPass is the Alberta Education website that is the one-stop-shop for students and their kindergarten to grade 12 education! This is where they can see their Diploma marks when in high school, and it is also where they will get their transcripts from for post-secondary.

It is also an option for parents and families who need address and enrollment verification for their students.

Below is a link on how to access MyPass. An important note is that it is a two step process. First you sign up online, then you get a letter to your house and you have to then login using the code from the letter.

The tool will help guide schools and individuals to the best care options for symptoms, including self-care at home, or seeking care through a walk-in clinic, family physician, or pharmacy for mild to moderate symptoms. Those with severe symptoms will be recommended to seek care through an urgent care centre or emergency department. Other available resources, such as the HEAL website and know your options guidance, continue to provide support for care, whether that be in-home or elsewhere. As always, Health Link continues to be available for Albertans, 24/7, by calling 811.

All Albertans are strongly encouraged to get immunized against influenza and COVID-19. They can also wear a well-fitting, high-quality mask in public places if they choose to do so. Rapid test kits will continue to be available at participating pharmacies across the province.
