WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 25 UPDATE 10 PM

IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR ALL OPK FAMILIES & STAFF

BCNEA and OPK School would like to provide you with an important update as a result of new information and tightened restrictions that were shared yesterday from the Government of Alberta. Some of the restrictions shared impact schools across the province. We want to inform you about how this new information will impact OPK School.

We will be continuing with our current practice for the next two weeks. OPK School will be deviating slightly from the provincial recommendations. We have determined that we will have an extended Christmas Break that will begin December 12, 2020, and extend to January 11, 2021. This extended break will allow for students to be with their families and limit the possibility of continued spread in the weeks leading up to, during, and after the Christmas Holiday.

OPK School will continue with our current schedule for the next TWO weeks. ALL students will continue with their current school schedule where Cohort A and Cohort B have their two designated days at school and then their three days at home. We will not be moving students to at-home learning for the next two weeks unless it is requested by families to do so. If you wish to have your child stay home for the next two weeks OPK school will ensure that they get an at-home learning package. More information on how to adjust your child's learning schedule will be provided shortly.

Safety has and continues to be the first priority of BCNEA and OPK School. We are proud of the work that our staff has done to keep our school clean and safe. These measures will not just continue but will be enhanced over the next two weeks leading up to the extended break.

OPK Staff wants to thank students, parents, and the community for helping us keep everyone safe! We will get through this together.

More detailed information will be provided in the upcoming days.

Sincerely,

BCNEA Management & OPK Leadership.
