Construction on Prairie Sky School is moving along well. We have not yet confirmed the opening date, but we are definitely getting close! Many of the outside finishings are almost complete, and the focus is now on getting the interior completed. This includes working on many of the specialty areas of the school such as the construction shop, science labs along with the foods and fashion rooms.

Update | Prairie Sky School C​onstruction Progress December 2022 

Last month we promised we would provide an update on Prairie Sky School's construction progress. Construction by Alberta Infrastructure is continuing. We still, however, do not know when the school will be ready to welcome students. 

A lot of work has been completed in the past month, with some areas of the school still being constructed. Our team was on site last week and reported that construction crews were working hard on the elementary side of the school, the main gym, the learning commons, hallways and some classrooms. 

See the full notice​ to ​view photos of the construction progress, in the areas mentioned.

Update | Prairie Sky Scho​ol Construction Progress November 2022

We know you are waiting for news about when Prairie Sky School will be open. Construction of the school by Alberta Infrastructure is continuing, but we still don’t know when the school will be ready to welcome students.

While we don’t yet have an opening date, we want to share a construction update with you. A lot of work has been completed since we last communicated with you in October. In the most recent Construction Project Status Report that was shared with the Board of Trustees on Oct. 11, the school’s construction was estimated to be 80 per cent complete. Our team was on site this week and reported that construction crews were working hard on the main gymnasium, the auxiliary gym, the learning commons, and a variety of classrooms.

Please see the notice​ for more information and to view construction progress photos.

Prairie School Construction Progress Update

Alberta Infrastructure recently informed the CBE that the school is expected to be completed and handed over to the CBE by the end of October. This date may change depending on how const​ruction progresses and whether building inspections are completed. 

Once the school is handed over to CBE, there are still many details that must be completed before the school will be ready to welcome students. Our teams require several weeks to complete final inspections, a thorough cleaning, and move into and set up the school for students. Student safety is our top priority, and we must ensure that all preparations are in place before allowing students to enter the building. [​Read More​​]

Inform | Prairie Sky 'School within a School' Update

Re: Change to designated schools for kindergarten and Grade 6 students 

Since the end of April, there has been a change in enrolment numbers for Prairie Sky School. Registrations for the school for the 2022-23 school year are higher than projected when we developed the 'school within a school' plan. While this is exciting because the Prairie Sky school community is growing, it presents challenges to the existing plan.​ [Read More​]

Registration Information

Registration for all CBE schools and programs for the 2022-23 school year starts Jan. 17, 2022. For more information on CBE's registration process, visit our Registratio​n page.

Prairie Sky School will offer kindergarten to Grade 8 programming in 2022-23 and kindergarten to Grade 9 programming in 2023-24.

The opening date for Prairie Sky School has changed due to construction delays. The school will now open later in the 2022-23 school year. We understand a change in schools mid-year can be difficult for families and have developed a plan to support students as they begin the 2022-23 school year and transition to a new school. The revised opening date will be announced in the fall. 

We have communicated to all parents/guardians of affected students a ‘school within a school’ model for a portion of the 2022-23 school year until the school’s construction is complete. Students from the Skyview Ranch will be attending the following designated schools until construction is complete:
  • Kindergarten students will be attending Hugh. A Bennett
  • Grade 1 to 5 students will be designated by address to Annie Foote School and Monterey Park School.
  • Grades 6 to 8 will attend Dr. Gordon Higgins School.

If you have any questions on designations or registration, please view the designation map or contact the student’s school, Hugh. A BennettAnnie Foote School, Monterey Park School, or Dr. Gordon Higgins School.

If your child is currently attending a CBE alternative program or an out-of-attendance area school and you wish for them to be registered for Prairie Sky School, please review CBE’s transfer process and submit a transfer request form.​
