Edmonton Schools have moved all students in grades 7-12 to online classes for at least the next two weeks.
On the evening of April 22nd, we were advised that all extra-curricular performance activities for these students must also be suspended during this time;
“Extra-curricular performance activities are not permitted for grade 7 to 12 youth in the municipalities of Calgary and Fort McMurray, effective April 20, and the municipality of Edmonton, effective April 22. This includes home-schooled students. These activities will be permitted again when in-person learning resumes.”
While our Orchestras have many students in grades 4 to 6, there are also several in grades 7 to 12.
Because of this, there will be no rehearsals until at least May 6th.
In-person learning is expected to resume in schools on May 6, 2021.
We will notify you as soon as possible to let you know whether we will be able to resume, or if this suspension will be extended.
