École Secondaire Notre Dame High School in Red Deer has shifted to online learning until the end of the month.
In a letter to parents, Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools superintendent Kathleen Finnigan says the move was made due to the number of students in quarantine.
Finnigan says in conversation with Alberta Education, the school board was granted a short-term operational shift from April 21-30 for Notre Dame, with in-person classes resuming May 3.
“As we progress toward the end of this school year, we wanted to remind our school community of the importance of limiting social contact not only while at school, but also outside of school hours,” Finnigan said in the letter.
“We are closely watching the impact of COVID-19 cases in our province, we continue to need your help. Please speak to your children and remind them of the importance of being more diligent than ever.”
