Red Deer Public School District

2020-2021 School Re-Entry Information

We hope our families are enjoying a safe and healthy summer break. We are looking forward to getting back to school on September 1 and in preparation, Red Deer Public Schools has been working diligently in planning for the next school year.

To prepare for September, we have developed a 2020-2021 Handbook for Students and Families, to assure you we are doing all we can to make return to school safe for our students and staff. As provincial guidance changes, this document will continue to be updated, so please check back regularly.

It’s going to be great to have students back in our classrooms, but we know that September will be different, and we want to provide you with the assurance that we will do everything we can to keep our students and staff healthy and well. We have developed a video which details what school will look like for our students this fall. We encourage you and your family to take a few minutes to watch it together before the first day of school.

We encourage you to check out our dedicated webpage for school re-entry. This includes our re-entry Handbook for Students and Families. The webpage also includes an FAQ section, which answers many questions we are receiving from families. We encourage families to ask any questions they have regarding re-entry in our Parent Questions Google Form. Please note, we will not answer questions directly, but the answers will be included in our FAQ section. This webpage will be updated regularly and will serve as your go-to source on information and decisions regarding school re-entry.

The success of this year’s re-entry will depend on the great partnership we have with our Red Deer Public families. We appreciate your continued support, patience and understanding as we move forward with our plans for re-entry and the 2020-2021 school year, and we can’t wait to have our students and staff back in the classroom!
