(May 22, 2020) Given the great uncertainty we face, specifically around the return to school plan for the 2020-2021 school year, MHPSD has made the decision to suspend the Play & Learn program at this time. The Play & Learn program is built on the foundation of in person, hands on, play based learning; unfortunately, this program will not work in an eLearning environment. Kindergarten will proceed along with all other grade levels this fall. 

We are sharing this information, so families can plan appropriately. We look forward to when the public health measures are lifted and students are back in school full time, at that point we will reopen the Play & Learn program. In the event that we are able to offer a program in the 2020-2021 school year, children that are currently registered for Play & Learn will remain on the list.

The Medicine Hat Public Board of Education is committed to the Play & Learn program and strongly believes in the play based learning philosophy. We will continue the Play & Learn program as soon are we are able to, this is not a cancellation, but a pause to allow COVID-19 to pass.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate the effects of this pandemic together. Please contact your school principal with your questions.
