Update | Prairie Sky School Construction Progress and Estimated Opening 

We are excited to share that construction on Prairie Sky School is progressing well, and we have identified a tentative opening date of Monday, April 3, after spring break. 

We are cautiously optimistic about being able to welcome students on April 3 as there is still much that needs to be completed before this date. Parts of the school need to be completed, and the building must pass several inspections before the building is turned over for CBE use. We are working closely with Alberta Infrastructure to complete the work. We expect to confirm the opening date, transportation information, bell times and other details next month.​
