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


Alberta School Councils' Association(ASCA) has been working with the Education Ministry on school re-entry planning for K-12 students in the 2020-21 school year. Points in consideration for three possible scenarios to ensure the health and safety of students and staff remain a priority requires input from the education community.

ASCA needs to hear from parents in regard to school re-entry planning, elements for consideration and/or areas of concern in local school communities.

The survey is for all parents in the school community. Please submit feedback by 12 midnight on May 14, 2020. TAKE THE ASCA SURVEY HERE


Alberta Education’s helpline for parents and caregivers looking for advice to families about questions “regarding their child’s program now that the traditional delivery process has changed”:


While we are not certain what September start up will look like, you may wish to order your child(ren)’s supplies through Write-on Stationery. It provides parents the opportunity to purchase a school supply package for your child that is specific to their school and grade and have it delivered to the school ready for the first day. They package and deliver students' individual orders directly to your school. For each student that orders, a sheet of pre-printed name labels that can be used to label their supplies, will be included.

This service provides quality products that meet the exact needs of each school at a price that allows parents to save money, time and the hassle of shopping.

Each supply list includes a Supply Package which lists the items that have been selected by your child’s teacher. 

The Additional Items  on each list ARE ALSO REQUIRED on the first day of school.  

Parents can choose to:

  • add them to the order. 
  • purchase them elsewhere.
  • send them to school with your child because you already own them.
