Ecole des Quatre- Vents in Peace River has moved to online learning until May 7 after five positive cases of coronavirus were found at the school.
Conseil Scolaire du Nord-Ouest announced on April 22 that over 50 per cent of the students and staff of the school had been directed to isolate themselves, so the board had received permission from Alberta Education to have students learn from home.
All classes from K to Grade 12 were moved online on April 23.
The board says, “This temporary transition will allow staff and students to complete their isolation at home, and allow students to continue their learning with their teachers.”
Alberta currently has the highest rate of coronavirus in Canada, and new variants of the disease seem to be infecting younger people.
The government announced April 29 that students Grade 7 and up in targeted “hot spots” will shift to online learning on May 3 after Calgary, Edmonton and Fort McMurray already moved to online learning
