With the wide availability of vaccines, Alberta Education has developed a plan to ease or remove public health measures for schools in September. The Alberta Government anticipates that in-school learning will return to normal in the fall, so in August they will confirm the health practices and measures that will be eased or lifted, and share how learning will resume in September.
Based on the government recommendations, the Black Gold School Division 2021-2022 Lifting Restrictions Plan provides information for parents and guardians and focuses on a normal, or near normal return to school, with in-school learning for the majority of students in the fall of 2021. Black Gold staff are excited to welcome students back to normal, or close to normal, conditions.
Once again, we want to thank all staff, students, parents/guardians and caregivers for working so hard over the last 16 months to ensure that our schools remained safe while minimizing the spread of COVID-19.
