Medicine Hat, AB (April 29, 2021) As a result of positive COVID-19 cases connected to AMS, more than half of the classroom teaching staff have been directed by Alberta Health Services to quarantine. Additionally, several staff have called in sick and are following AHS guidance with respect to isolation and testing. The result of so many absences among staff is that it becomes challenging to ensure that the systems and structures in a school function properly. MHPSD is concerned that staff (permanent and substitute) will be unable to maintain proper support for instruction and student safety and supervision.

In order to provide a safe learning and working environment for students and staff, Superintendent, Mark Davidson has directed all grade 8 and 9 students to at-home, on-line learning starting tomorrow, through to Friday, May 7. Grade 8 and 9 students will return to school for in-person learning on Monday, May 10, 2021. Teachers will provide academic instruction through google classroom for the duration of the at-home online learning period.

Grade 7 students will continue to attend school in person and bus service will be available. All after school and extracurricular activities will remain cancelled until further notice.
