Provincial Day of Mourning - School is Open - Monday, September 19

In solemn recognition of Her late Majesty, the Government of Alberta has announced that September 19, 2022 will be a provincial day of mourning. 

Schools are encouraged to offer opportunities for students to take part in the day of mourning. School authorities may also consider allowing students to participate in an outdoor ceremony at the Alberta legislature at 10:00 a.m. on September 19, the day of her funeral in London. The ceremony will be live-streamed for students who are not able to attend in-person. Additional details on the ceremony are available https://www.alberta.ca/queen-elizabeth-memorial-services.aspx.

Other ways for schools to commemorate the passing of Her late Majesty could include observing a moment of silence or discussing Her late Majesty in the classroom, her life and public service, and what students will remember about her.
