School Re-entry

GET READY FOR 2021-22

As this school year comes to a close, the Division is preparing to support students and families next year. In March, we announced plans for the 2021-22 school year. Our goal is to have a gradual return to in-person learning, but that may not be possible at the start of September. 


KEY DATES

June 21-August 12, 2021
Select in-person or online learning for the first half of the school year.

September-end of January 2022
The first half of the school year.


CHOOSE YOUR CHILD'S LEARNING OPTION

Starting June 21, families can choose between in-person or online learning for the first half of the school year. 

CURRENT DIVISION STUDENTS

Sign in to your parent SchoolZone account from 8 a.m. on June 21 to 4 p.m. on August 12:

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

You can change your selection anytime before August 12. However, SchoolZone will be temporarily unavailable from August 7-9 for system upgrades. 

NEW TO EDMONTON PUBLIC SCHOOLS

If your child is new to Edmonton Public Schools, such as Kindergarten students, you will receive an email during the week of June 21. The email will include a link to a form where you can make your selection. 

You can change your selection by using the link in your email until August 12. However, the form will be temporarily unavailable between August 7-9 for system upgrades. 

AFTER THE DEADLINE

After August 12, students cannot move from in-person to online learning

The deadline helps us make decisions about teaching assignments and what resources are needed to support your child’s learning for the first half of the year.

CHANGING LEARNING OPTIONS

IF PARENTS CHOOSE TOWHAT HAPPENS
Keep their child home after the deadline 
  • Students are not placed in an online class
  • Students receive work from their classroom teacher to complete at home
  • Parents will be responsible for guiding their child's learning
 
Move their child to in-person learning after the deadline 
  • Contact the school principal to find out if there is room in a specific grade  

MORE INFORMATION

If a full return to in-person learning in 2022 is not possible due to the pandemic, families will be asked again to choose in-person or online learning for the rest of the school year.
