What is the PowerSchool Parent Portal? 

The PowerSchool Parent Portal is a web-based software system that we use to share student information with families. Online registration is a new part of the PowerSchool Parent Portal and you will need an active account in order to access and use this system.   

EARLY CHILDHOOD PROGRAMS

We are now accepting applications for Early childhood programs. We ask that families visit their in area school (see link to attendance map below) to apply for the Early Learning Program (ELP), Kindergarten and/or the Play & Learn Program. 

EARLY LEARNING PROGRAM (ELP)

ELP is offered in the morning or the afternoon for children who are 3 - 5 years old by December 31, 2020 and have assessed developmental delays and qualify for early intervention through Program Unit Funding as outlined by Alberta Education. We reserve five spaces in each class for play partners. Play partners are children that reflect typical development and are three or four years old. The cost for a play partners is $225/month, and a pre authorized debit agreement is required upon confirmation of placement (not at time of application). School based student fees may be required, depending on student age and level of need. Families will be notified by April 2020 via email regarding the status of their application.  Please note this is an educational program therefore it is not eligible for subsidy or a childcare deduction on your income tax. 
KINDERGARTEN

We are now accepting applications for Early childhood programs. We ask that families visit their in area school (see link to attendance map below) to apply for the Early Learning Program (ELP), Kindergarten and/or the Play & Learn Program. 

Children must be five years old by December 31, 2020 to register for 2020-2021 Kindergarten programming. Kindergarten is a part time program and will offered in either the morning or afternoon.
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. Our next update will go out no later than June 22, 2020.
