Family choice for the second half of 2021-22

Tue, 23 Nov, 2021

News item: Family choice for the second half of 2021-22

As the pandemic continues, we’re offering families a choice in how their child learns. 

Starting December 6, families can choose in-person or online learning for the second half of the 2021–22 school year. The second half of the school year is from February 1 to June 28, 2022.  

Thanks to vaccinations, the Division is pleased to report that there have been fewer cases of COVID-19 in our junior and senior high schools. With vaccines becoming available for children ages five to 11, we look forward to fewer cases in our K–6 classrooms as well. We hope this means more families will feel comfortable selecting in-person learning.

SELECT IN SCHOOLZONE

Sign in to your parent SchoolZone account between 8 a.m. on December 6 and 4 p.m. on January 11: 

  • select Forms from the menu
  • choose Family choice for 2021-22 

If you don’t have access to your SchoolZone account or if your child is new to Edmonton Public Schools, contact the school to let them know your preferred option. 

CHANGING YOUR SELECTION 

Before the deadline 

Current Division families can sign in to SchoolZone anytime before 4 p.m. on January 11 to change their selection. 

After the deadline

After January 11, 2022, students cannot move from in-person to online learning. This deadline ensures schools have enough teaching staff assigned to both online and in-person classes.

If you want to switch to in-person learning, talk to your child’s school to find out if there is space in a specific grade or program.

WHEN WILL I HEAR FROM MY ONLINE LEARNING TEACHER?

Students taking online learning may not hear from their teacher until the first day of classes, which is on February 1.
