COVID-19 Information for 2020/21 School Year

School Re-Entry Banner

We're in this together; putting student and staff safety first.

Under the guidance provided by the Government of Alberta for Kindergarten to Gr. 12, students re-entered school under Scenario 1: In-School Learning with classes resuming at near-normal operations with increased health-measures. RVS has published our plans for Scenario 1 on our website, as well as plans for Scenario 2: Blended Learning and Scenario 3: At-Home Learning.

We will continue to revise these plans and provide additional information and updates as the situation evolves. Check back often.

Thank you for your ongoing cooperation and feedback as we work together to protect the health and well-being of our students and staff.
