Alberta Suspends In-School Learning From December 18 to January 8

Premier Jason Kenney moved Alberta to a state of public health emergency on November 24th and is bringing in tougher COVID-19 restrictions that include limits on social gatherings and less face-to-face class time for students.

Alberta students in Grades 7 through 12 will transition at-home learning on Nov. 30, ending in-person classes early. In-person classes will resume on Jan. 11.

 

Students in early childhood services and Grades K-6 will remain learning in-person until Dec. 18.
