The following message was shared with Grade 12 students and their families on Jan. 28, 2021 through each school's messaging system.
Dear Grade 12 Students, Parents and Guardians,
As we prepare to enter the second semester of this school year, I want to provide an update regarding Graduation 2021. At this time, we are not planning traditional graduations that involve large public gatherings.
As a result, senior high school principals have considered a number of options to mark this important achievement. For all high schools in the CBE, the following decisions have been made about Graduation 2021:
- There will be no formal banquets or dances
- Any ceremonies will take place in our own schools
- Details will be worked out over the coming months. Any activities will follow all Government of Alberta, AHS and CBE health and safety guidelines that may be in place at that time.
It is disappointing that once again, we are unable to provide a more typical graduation experience. Please know that we are immensely proud of your accomplishments and the grit you have demonstrated in graduating under such challenging circumstances.
As soon as we have additional details about graduation 2021, we will share them with all students and families.
