Effectively immediately, Chinook Winds Adventist Academy is closed until further notice. Staff will continue to come to school tomorrow and develop a plan regarding how to deliver lessons to students. But no students will be permitted to attend school until further notice.
We will contact parents later tomorrow (Monday) regarding how we will be moving forward to deliver education directly to you electronically at home. That information will be entitled Email #4 for tracking purposes. We are so blessed that most of the teaching staff at Chinook Winds have received training regarding how to set up an electronic classroom (Google Classroom, etc.) and we will let you know exactly what method we will be utilizing once we have a chance to discuss tomorrow.
This is going to be unsettling news for many parents. Expect to get a call from our teachers on a call-out list later today. However, we will not be in a position to explain how service delivery of classes will take place until later this week. Teachers will not be able to answer many of the questions that you will have until after we have had a chance to meet and discuss a coordinated and agreed to strategy.
Rest assured that we do have a plan that will be further developed and agreed upon by teachers in consultation with the Alberta Conference, and that plan will be communicated with all parents as soon as possible and practical.
Please DO NOT call the school looking for more information or flood us with email at this time. Wait to hear from CWAA in Email #4 regarding protocols about how we will deal with this matter moving forward.
The protocol regarding illnesses are all available at the Alberta Health Services web site as follows: https://www.albertahealthservices.ca/topics/Page16944.aspx
May God bless you and your family as we move through the next number of weeks together.
