Thank you for your prayers, support and patience as we navigate the COVID-19 situation on a day-by-day basis. As we get closer to the start of school, the amount of information from mainstream and social media and other sources can be overwhelming. Through our communications with you, we hope to provide context that is specific to the GCA community. Please rest assured that our focus is on the education of your children in a safe and supportive environment.
You may have heard that the Calgary Board of Education announced today that masks will be mandatory for CBE students in Kindergarten to Grade 12.
GCA, does not have plans to do the same. Unless we are advised otherwise by Alberta Health, we will continue to follow Dr. Hinshaw’s recommendation that masks are mandatory for students in grades 4 and up, and optional for students in Kindergarten to Grade 3.
I realize that many of you may have questions regarding our COVID-19 Re-entry Plan. If this is the case, I once again encourage you to visit our FAQ pages, or to contact me personally at firstname.lastname@example.org. We continue to pray for you all during this time, and trust implicitly that God is watching over us all.
Soli Deo Gloria,
Head of School
