PLAY & LEARN

PLAY & LEARN PROGRAM - NEW*

It is our intention to run the Play & Learn Program when children are back in school full time.  The Government of Alberta is regularly providing updates as they relaunch the economy and consider how schools will re-open. To date they have provided three scenarios:

Scenario

Description

Impact on Play & Learn in MHPSD

Scenario 1

For schools to be open as much as possible under normal conditions

Play & Learn will be offered

Scenario 2

For schools to be generally open but with some health restrictions in place, like physical distancing and personal protective equipment (PPE), for instance.

Impact is unknown at this time as details around this scenario have not been released. This model may require a back up plan for parents.

Scenario 3

That teacher-directed at-home learning continues

Play & Learn will not be offered

As we receive more clarification regarding the regulations we will pass that on to you.  (There has been some confusion that “suspended” meant “canceled”.  That is not the case – we just wanted parents to understand that we may have to temporarily suspend the program if the health regulations are such that we can not return to school full time in the fall.)

In the meantime we would ask that families complete the Pre Authorized Debit agreement so all documentation is in place to support start up.  No fees will be withdrawn from your account until Play & Learn begins. Just for your information, fees are withdrawn on the first day of the month. If you have concerns about the fees please contact your school principal for a Fee Waiver Application.

We are looking forward to a great school year in spite of all of the uncertainty around us during this pandemic.
