Message to Families

Good afternoon Fort McMurray Catholic Schools families,

We continue to keep you all in our prayers as we navigate these times. We will continue to be here for you.

We reached out to you earlier this week to tell you off-site instruction would not continue for this week. Now we wish to provide an update.

Off-site instruction will now begin May 6th. This excludes Father Turcotte School, which we will postpone until further notice. Given the current situation in our community, we trust this is a relief to many. We continue to support our families to the best of our ability.

We know many families have extenuating circumstances. Please reach out to your teacher and your school. We are here for you every step of the way.

As you may be aware Alberta Education confirmed this week that off-site learning will remain for the rest of this school year. It is critical for our students to continue education in the best manner possible. Please continue to support your child/children with off-site learning and keep reading with your child. This will help prepare them for their next school year.

Our counselling staff created a mental health website with resources for both COVID-19 and flooding.

God Bless,

George McGuigan
Superintendent
Fort McMurray Catholic Schools
