Superintendent's Message

Welcome to 2019! I hope that you have all had a wonderful and well-deserved holiday and are ready to take on this exciting new year. As classes resume, there are a number of important events taking place in the coming months.

Semester 1 will be ending on January 30th with the 31st being a professional development day for staff to prepare for the upcoming semester. HPSD is offering diploma exam prep classes to students to help them prepare for their upcoming diploma exams. The schedule of offerings, as well as the bus schedule, can be found on our website. Best of luck to all of our students as they successfully complete this milestone in their academic career!

Within the next month, Parents and guardians of students in grades 4, 7, and 10, as well as those parents and guardians of students whose school has less than 120 students in grades 4-12, will be receiving an accountability pillar survey from Alberta Education. By completing this survey, you are giving your school, your school authority, and your provincial government important information about the quality of education your child is receiving and helping to ensure they are being prepared for success. Please complete the survey online or return your completed survey in the enclosed, pre-paid envelope by February 22nd, 2019.

From February 6-8, all educators will be attending their annual teachers’ convention in Edmonton. There will be no school for students as our teachers take part in several days of intense learning to hone their skills as educators.

Lastly, the election day for our Ward 4 by-election will be on Monday, February 4th. There will be 2 polling stations for Ward 4 residents to vote at, one at the Town of Slave Lake office and the other at the Widewater Complex. If there is only one nominee, that person will be acclaimed as the new Ward 4 Trustee.

Thank you all for making 2018 a great year! I want to thank you for helping our students to inspire, lead, and achieve to the highest level. I look forward to seeing all your amazing accomplishments in 2019.
