June 5/20 OES Update

Onoway Elementary - A Web of Supports School - Touching Tomorrow Today


Every family received an email fro Northern Gateway Public Schools asking you to participate in a survey. The information being collected will inform our school division as we shape plans for your child(ren) to transition back to school. Coming back to school is affected by many variables including guidelines from our Minister of Health. Northern Gateway needs to hear from you!

 Please take the time to fill out the survey if you have not already done so:


REQUIRED BY ALBERTA EDUCATION: Thanks to everyone who has already forwarded us their proof of physical address.  If you have not already done so, please forward your proof to as soon as possible. Click the following link to see examples posted on the OES website


Encourage your child(ren) to visit Mrs. Olson’s Virtual Music Room  She has created a safe online space for all students to learn music while engaging in fun and interactive activities 


Onoway Elementary School Council would like to inform all families that they will be issuing coupons for hot lunch. This means that if you placed an order for hot lunch, but then school closed and your child did not receive that hot lunch, your family will be issued a hot lunch coupon to be used during the 20.21 school year. 


School Council Annual General Meeting with election of Council Executive positions will take place online June 11th at 6:30p.m.. Our Fundraising Association Annual General Meeting will commence immediately afterward and elections will take place for Executive positions. This format will be digital and a link to join the meeting will be placed on our OES public calendar and you can access it here:


20/21 Registrations for NEW student(s) to Onoway Elementary School are being accepted. See our website for details. 


20/21 Kindergarten Parent Information Event has been postponed until August 2020. Time & Date TBA


Northern Gateway Public Schools have coordinated with the municipality and have opened playgrounds in Onoway as of June 2, 2020. Use is discouraged as these amenities will not be sanitized. We encourage you to follow AHS guidelines which include sanitizing your hands before and after use and do not touch your face.


Last day of student instruction will be Monday, June 22, 2020. 



Below is a schedule for 1 adult from each family to:

  • return technology
  • return library books
  • pick up all remaining items belonging to your child(ren)
  • pick up report card(s)


Our goal is to provide quick access to your child’s items in a safe and organized manner. This schedule will support social distancing and limit the number of people in the school at one time. If you have any COVID-19 symptoms, including cough, runny nose, fever, sore throat, please arrange for a designated person to come on your behalf. We continue to ask that children not be brought into the school. 


We thank everyone for their patience and understanding as we deal with this unprecedented situation.
