Through this pandemic, Calgary Academy’s goal has always been to provide a safe and predictable environment for our students and our staff while delivering the best educational experience for our students. Effective Monday, October 18, anyone entering the Calgary Academy school facility require proof of vaccination.
This process applies to any adult entering the Calgary Academy building, including, but not be limited to, coaches and referees for athletics events, parent volunteers, parents coming in to meet with our staff, special guest speakers, board members, and invited guests. This would not relate to someone dropping off something quickly or touching base with front office staff for a student need.
Visitors and guests must email firstname.lastname@example.org with their proof of vaccination attached, ahead of their visit to the school. The proof will be noted, and the vaccination record deleted from our files. Only the proof being noted will be kept so that guests do not have to provide each time they come in. They will just need to check in with our staff to ensure they have already provided proof.
Guests who do not provide evidence of vaccination ahead of time may show their proof when they arrive at school with their government provided QR code.
Our front desk staff will take note of the individual’s name, vaccination confirmation status, relation to the school (parent, contractor, coach, etc.), and a contact number. No other information will be retained.
Those who choose not to present vaccination proof, either by emailing it in ahead of time or showing it when they arrive, will not be able to remain on premises (beyond a quick drop off as referenced above) and will be required to leave.
Families visiting the school for the purposes of admissions are not required to send in their status ahead of time, and Admissions staff will check proof of vaccination directly.
