Closures - Thursday, Apr. 14th

Due to the conditions of continued snowfall and blowing snow in much of the Division, and Environment Canada’s ongoing blizzard warning for the Parkland, all MVSD schools and division facilities will be closed on Thursday, April 14. Staff may work from home.

Closures - Wednesday, Apr. 13th

Due to Environment Canada’s warning of a major spring storm poised to hit our region beginning overnight Tuesday into Wednesday morning and lasting until Friday morning, all MVSD schools and division facilities will be closed on Wednesday, April 13.  Widespread snowfall accumulations of 30-50 cm accompanied by northerly winds gusting from 60-70 km/h resulting in zero visibility at times is being forecasted.  Staff may work from home. We are making this announcement prior to the storm due to the severity of the forecast and so that parents can plan in advance.  We will assess the situation as the storm progresses prior to making a decision on school closures and/or bus cancellations for Thursday, April 14.

DRCSS Final Assessments Suspended

The DRCSS will be suspending all Final Assessments for Semester 1 and Semester 2 for the 2021-22 school year. This decision is in response to the uncertainties that Covid may have on our students and staff. We want to alleviate added anxiety on the part of both students and teachers. Our goal is to allow teachers to adapt classroom practices as the public health situation warrants. Lastly, we want to allow our teachers to be able to better respond to mental health and well-being concerns of students without any added pressures of a final assessment.
Final grades will be calculated at 100% of regular course work. There will not be a “final assessment week” in either semester. Students will attend until the last day of classes for each semester to learn and be assessed. February 3rd is the last day of classes for semester 1.
Please contact Mr. Casavant should you have any questions.
