What do I do if I have questions about the length of the closure or other questions regarding COVID-19?
If you have questions related to COVID-19 in particular, please go to our website for the most current information: www.calgaryacademy.com/covid-19/. If you have questions regarding how our school is dealing with this unprecedented event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Will we be notified if a member of our school community is asked to self-isolate?
AHS will take the lead in notifying a community when they believe there is reason to be concerned about exposure to a case of COVID-19. If you or your child is at risk due to close contact with COVID-19, AHS will notify you.
What assistance is available to help my family cope with the emotional impact of the situation?
We understand that this situation is alarming. We are committed to supporting all members in our community. If your child is feeling anxious or concerned, please encourage them to speak with their teacher. Students can also access Kids Help Phone confidentially 24/7 by calling 1-800-668-6868.
How will I know it is safe to return to school?
We will take the recommendation from the province on when it is safe to return to school. We will share that information with parents as soon as we have it. All staff and students will be asked to complete a self-assessment prior to returning to school, to ensure they are healthy and it is safe for them to do so.
I will still be traveling during Spring Break. What is the protocol for me and my family’s return?
The current advice from Alberta Health is that all travelers returning from outside Canada after March 12 should self-isolate on their return for 14 days, independent of the country they were visiting. If we are still in the remote “work and learn from home” strategy following Spring Break, then your recommended 14-day self-isolation period won’t affect your child’s learning as they can continue to learn at home.
Who do I contact if I have more questions?
Parents with questions or concerns about learning can connect with their teacher directly, or can send general questions to email@example.com. Questions about tuition, refunds, or payments should be directed to Annette Moline at firstname.lastname@example.org, or can leave a message at 403-686-6444 ext 321 and Annette will call you back.
