Dear staff, parents, and guardians of students attending Our Lady of the Assumption School, Lethbridge,


 After considerable consultation with Alberta Education and school administration, we have decided that all Grades 1 to 6 students at Our Lady of the Assumption School will move to online learning from Monday, April 26, 2021 until Friday, May 7, 2021. Attendance will be mandatory and teachers will continue to provide quality learning opportunities for students. Our current plan is to resume in-school learning for these grades on Monday, May 10, 2021.

Please note that, at this time, in-person learning will continue for Early Learning and Kindergarten classes.
The rationale for this decision is first, and most importantly, that the number and configuration of staff currently required to isolate will significantly impact the ability of the school to operate during this time. This has been compounded by a decreasing number of available substitute teachers in the region. In addition, with the increased number of COVID-19 cases in our community, particularly with the rise of variants, we are hopeful that this time will curb infection rates while ensuring the least disruption possible for our families with younger children who require child care.
We understand and appreciate that this announcement may cause additional pressures on your family and apologize that more notice could not be provided. Nonetheless, we remain hopeful that these efforts will limit the spread of COVID-19 and thank you in advance for your help in following the health guidelines set out to ensure the safety of our schools and communities.
In the meantime, we would like to thank you for your continued prayers and support during this time.
Principal Meghan Calder, Our Lady of the Assumption School
