Will tuition, fees and other costs be reimbursed if the school closure continues to the end of the school year?
No. We are doing our very best to mitigate and minimize the impact of this closure on student outcomes through our “work and learn from home” strategy. We are likely to see some adjusted timelines however our focus is on ensuring learning continues.
Will bussing fees be reimbursed if the school shuts down?
As we do not yet know the duration of the closure, we aren’t able to answer this question at this time. Once we receive additional information from Alberta Education and our transportation provider, we will communicate with parents of children who use our transportation services.
Will fees for offsite activities or field trips that don’t take place be reimbursed if the school shuts down?
Families who have paid separately for specific offsite activities and field trips not covered under the annual supply fee will be reimbursed if the school decides to cancel the trips.
Can the school still provide the same level of education my child is accustomed to with a large amount of Instructional Staff absenteeism if that were to occur due to illness even remotely?
Yes. In these extraordinary times we are taking every measure necessary to ensure our operations continue at the same high levels our students expect.
Will the school provide or reimburse me for increased internet usage, paper, and other school supplies needed during the closure?
As we do not yet know the duration of the closure, we aren’t able to answer this question at this time. Once we receive additional information from Alberta Education, we will communicate with parents about potential financial support for school supplies if necessary.
What if I forgot something? Can I access the school facility?
The school facility is now closed to students and parents. If the closure continues following Spring Break, we will communicate with parents about times when students may pick up any items they left behind.
I pre-ordered for meals the week of the closure and/or for the month of April. Will I be issued a credit?
We’ll be in contact in early April regarding credits for the week of March 16, 2020, and for any April pre-order. Further April pre-orders are not currently available.
I need to send something to the school and had planned to mail it. What should I do now?
Mail pickup will be a challenge as the school is now closed with some staff having limited access. Please consider sending your documents digitally, and emailing to either the direct recipient, or to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will make sure your documents get to the right person. Please do not mail cash. If you are trying to make a payment, please use one of the online options detailed at calgaryacademy.com/payments.
