PRSD delays first day back to school to September 8, 2020

In order to foster student and staff safety and well-being and ensure the preparedness of schools, Peace River School Division (PRSD) will delay the first day of school to September 8, 2020. The Superintendent of Schools after consulting with the board of trustees, senior administration, and school administrators determined that a delayed start would be necessary.

Delaying the re-entry to school will ensure that staff are provided the time to become familiar with new safety protocols, provide the division more time to plan for at-home learning, ensure the appropriate level of caretaking staff is in place and ensure the necessary cleaning and safety supplies are received and distributed in PRSD schools.

PRSD’s highest commitment is the safety and well-being of our students and staff and sincerely appreciates the support of school communities as PRSD prepares to welcome students safely back to school. Information and updates regarding school re-entry will continue to be posted on the division website at prsd.ab.ca.
