November 16 Reminders

Good Morning Everyone,
Due to the increase of Covid-19 cases in Alberta, new-targeted public health measures were introduced on Friday.

The health and safety of our students and staff is our highest priority.  Now more than ever, we encourage students and their families to remain vigilant and ensure everyone is following public health guidance, both at school but even more importantly in other areas of our day-to-day lives.
If your child is ill and you're not sure when they can return to school, Red Deer Public Schools has created a flowchart:

  How do the new AHS' enhanced protocols affect our volleyball teams?
Due to the implementation of the following protocol:
►Ban on indoor group fitness classes & team sports (Nov. 13-17)
we have cancelled all volleyball GAMES until November 30th.  We will continue to hold volleyball practices.  Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
The success of our health measures will require a joint effort from every member of our community as we work together to stay safe and healthy. It is very important to follow the protocols.  Thank you for your support!  

🍽  We are so excited!  Our Hot Lunch Program starts today!

Our Hot Lunch Team has made some changes in order to follow the current school guidelines to maintain a safe and healthy delivery of meals.  Our restaurants are also working hard to be as safe as possible in preparing and delivering the meals to our school.  
It's not too late to order Monday, November 30th's Booster Juice menu items for your children.  You can choose smoothies, wraps, and/or a pastry.
