Canyon School Weekly Memo

"The Canyon School Community will nurture caring, respectful citizens who embrace lifelong learning."
2020-21 Staffing Plan - For the upcoming school year, we are expecting a decline in student population as well as a decline in funding available to the school, resulting in a decrease in the teaching and support staff available to the school. In order to create a staffing plan that works within these limitations, we are making adjustments to class configurations. For the 2020-21 school year, we will be reducing from 13 classroom to 11 classrooms, with some grades moving to a combined-grades model. For the upcoming year, our grade configurations will be as follows:
|Assistant Principal/Learning Support||Mrs. Ames|
|Learning Support/FNMI/PUF Support||Mrs. Lach|
|Family School Liaison Counselor||Lindsey Michalsky|
|Gr. 1A||Mrs. Anastacio|
|Gr. 1B||Mrs. Riedel|
|Gr. 2/3A||Mrs. Robbins|
|Gr. 2/3B||Mrs Lenz|
|Gr. 2/3C||Mr. Martens & Mrs. Mensaghi|
|Gr. 4/5A||Mrs. Bonertz & Mrs. Milligan|
|Gr. 4/5B||Mrs. Simpson|
|Gr. 4/5C||Miss McCracken|
|Gr. 6A||Mr. Shackleford|
|Gr. 6B||Mrs. Duncan|
|Music (January - June)||Mrs. Matthews|
|Administrative Assistant||Mrs. Kirk|
|Administrative Assistant||Mrs. Noel|
|Learning Commons Technical||Mr. Clark|
|Educational Assistants||Mrs. Doell|
|Nutrition Program Assistant||TBD|
|Preschool Educator||Mrs. Kelly|
|Preschool Educational Assistant||Mrs. Terpstra|
|Preschool Educational Assistant||Mrs. Frost|
A reminder - this staffing plan, like all plans, is anticipatory in nature - if circumstances change, plans will be adjusted accordingly. If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions, please contact Mr. Pichurski at the school.
Reopening of Schools for 2020-21 - We have received many questions and concerns about what the reopening of schools will look like in the fall. At this time, school divisions and school boards are awaiting direction from the Alberta Government regarding potential timelines, guidelines and restrictions related to the opening of schools. As soon as this information becomes available, we will share it with the school community.
