On November 24, the province declared a state of public health emergency and announced several new measures to slow the spread of COVID-19—some of which impact Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) and in-school learners.
CHANGES TO IN-SCHOOL LEARNING: OVERVIEW AND TIMELINE
- Students in grades 7-12, enrolled in in-school learning, will move to a temporary online learning model from November 30 to January 8.
- The Christmas break takes place December 23 to January 5. During this time there is no school for students.
- All students, K-12, resume temporary online learning on January 6 to January 8.
- In-school learning resumes on January 11.
NOTE: Alberta Education has directed school divisions to follow their Division calendars if dates differ from what was announced during the COVID-19 update on Nov. 24, 2020. As such, the EIPS Christmas break remains unchanged.
