What’s the Latest

For Elementary Students

Hello Everyone,

As we move toward suspension of classes, we encourage you to have your child come get their belongings from lockers, desks, etc.  We invite STUDENTS ONLY to return before 2:50pm on Thursday March 19th and enter through the front doors of the school. Teachers have already packed up student belongings so your child can head directly to his/her class and grab their items. We appreciate parents waiting for your children near the front entrance. When your child is here, they are welcome to exchange library books if they would like additional reading material at home.

We encourage students to take home items as if it is the end of the year, but keeping them organized and in a condition to return to school. We encourage you to look through work with your child, but please do not recycle anything at this point in the event we return to school this year.

As we hear more direction from the ministry and our school division about next steps in regards to furthering your child’s education, we will be sure to forward it along to everyone.

For Highschool Students

Hepburn 10-12 Parents,

The provincial government’s school closure announcement has generated a number of questions and a great deal of uncertainty for students, parents, and school staff.

Our current priority is to stop the spread and reduce the impact of COVID-19. As we navigate the coming days, weeks, and months, we will continue to share information and do our best to reassure students and families.

There have been many questions regarding final grades, credits, and graduation. There are no concrete answers at this time. Prairie Spirit School Division is seeking clarity on these and other issues before any definite decisions are made. The school, School Division, and Ministry of Education are working to ensure the best possible outcome for students. This outcome will balance the safety needs of the present with the academic concerns of the future.

Information on what submitting marks to the Ministry of Education will look like will be made available in the coming days. Once we have received information on this process, we can make the best decision possible for our students. Granting of credits will also be clarified in the coming days as will requirements for graduation and the details surrounding graduation activities.

Until we know how marks will be interpreted by the Ministry of Education we will be removing online access to them.

We encourage you to have your child come get their belongings from lockers, desks, etc.  We invite STUDENTS ONLY to return before 2:50pm on Thursday March 19th and enter through the front doors of the school. We appreciate parents waiting for your children near the front entrance. Please do not recycle anything and keep it organized and in a condition to return to school in the event we return to school this year. When your child is here, they are welcome to exchange library books if they would like additional reading material at home.

We will continue to support our students and community as we progress through these uncertain times. Please know that as we move forward through this process you will continue to get information as it becomes available. Your patience as we move forward is greatly appreciated.
