Measles in Alberta - Important Information for Schools & Parents
Alberta Health Services (April 16, 2014)
As you may be aware, a number of measles cases have been identified in Alberta since last fall, with these cases mainly involving unimmunized individuals. School jurisdictions across the province have been working with Alberta Education in supporting the efforts of Alberta Health and Alberta Health Services to respond to these outbreaks.
Given the significant resurgence of measles that has occurred in the last few weeks, Alberta's Chief Medical Officer of Health has asked Alberta Education to provide the attached information to school jurisdictions in order to help prepare for the potential spread of measles within schools.
Please refer to the attached letter from the Chief Medical Officer of Health for information about measles in Alberta.
Parent Survey – Elementary Reporting Model
Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) is beginning a review of its current elementary reporting model. The new system for communicating student learning will be multifaceted, and will continue to have an outcome-based structure.
The information gathered from stakeholders (parents, teachers, and students) will be used to improve the communication of student learning. Your feedback is essential to this review process, and your insights are appreciated.
We invite all elementary parents to take a few minutes to complete this survey to share your feedback. The survey is open now and will remain open until Friday, April 18, 2014.
