After consultation with many of our stakeholders, staff and senior leadership, we have decided that Summer School will start following a hybrid model of optional in person learning and online instruction. All students will have the choice to participate in learning online with the option to come into the school for face to face support twice per week. This in person support is optional however students will still be required to attend in person for some specific examinations as outlined by each instructor.
Students taking a 30 level course will be welcome to attend Summer School in person on Mondays and Wednesdays. Students taking a 10 or 20 level course can attend in person on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Courses will be cohorted by instructor and each cohort will have an individual classroom which they will remain in during each day of in person learning. This approach was chosen out of an abundance of caution for the safety and well being of our students and staff but also allows for some in person learning support.
This cohorting model helps to reduce the number of students in a single classroom space so if the need arises that one group would need to quarantine, the group(s) required to do this would be significantly smaller.
This year the Wolf Creek Summer school will again be at Lacombe Composite High School, located at 5628 56th Ave, Lacombe, AB. During their orientation meeting, students will receive their classroom locations for in person support and for the writing of examinations.
It is our goal to provide the best learning environment possible for our students. Our experience tells us that most students learn best and are most efficient when they are in person learning with their teachers. However, in an attempt to be as flexible as we can, to bring instruction to the highest number of students while being as safe as possible, we have created a flexible opportunity for students to complete their courses online but with some in person support so they can participate in Wolf Creek Summer School 2021.
These measures, of course, are subject to change with current health orders and government mandates. We will continue to do our very best to keep all parents and students up to date on all relevant health information as it pertains to the operation of Wolf Creek Summer School.
Yours in Learning,
Korey Von Kuster
