2020-2021 Back to School Information

Posted on July 27

Tansi, Edlánat’e, Hello, 

The 2020-2021 school year is just around the corner! Classes will resume for September 8, 2020

On July 21, 2020, the Alberta Government announced the decision to open schools in the fall under scenario 1 (near normal with health measures). Northland School Division is currently developing a School Relaunch Plan that will guide what the 2020-2021 school year will look like for our families and staff. The plan is being created based on the three re-entry scenarios outlined by the Alberta Government. Once the School Relaunch Plan is completed, it will be posted on our website and shared through social media. 

Please review the following "Back to School Information". If you have any further questions please feel free to call central office at 780-624-2060 or 1-800-362-1360.
