Measles in Alberta - Important Information for Schools & Parents

As you may be aware, a number of measles cases have been identified in Alberta since last fall, with these cases mainly involving unimmunized individuals. School jurisdictions across the province have been working with Alberta Education in supporting the efforts of Alberta Health and Alberta Health Services to respond to these outbreaks.

Given the significant resurgence of measles that has occurred in the last few weeks, Alberta's Chief Medical Officer of Health has asked Alberta Education to provide the attached information to school jurisdictions in order to help prepare for the potential spread of measles within schools.

Please refer to the attached letter from the Chief Medical Officer of Health for information about measles in Alberta.


EIPS Parent Survey – Elementary Reporting Model

Elk Island Public Schools is beginning a review of its current elementary reporting model. The new system for communicating student learning will be multifaceted, and will continue to have an outcome-based structure.


The information gathered from stakeholders (parents, teachers, and students) will be used to improve the communication of student learning. Your feedback is essential to this review process, and your insights are appreciated.


We invite all elementary parents to complete this survey to share your feedback. You can access the parent survey directly at or using the link on the home page of the division website at The survey is open now and will remain open until Friday, April 18, 2014.

Have Your Say in Fort Saskatchewan’s Future

The City of Fort Saskatchewan is in the process of planning its programs and services for the next four years, and would like to hear from you!

The City of Fort Saskatchewan is inviting citizens, community groups and local businesses to share their thoughts on priorities for the community going forward, starting with a phone and online survey conducted by Banister Research. Results from these surveys will be analysed and further opportunities for input provided during community meetings and focus group sessions to be held in early May.

All of the feedback gathered through surveys and discussions will be compiled into a report, which Council will use to finalize the 2014-2017 Strategic Plan and determine programs and services to be funded during the operating and capital budget process this fall.

You can access the online survey, which will be available until April 16, through the city’s website at
