Update 2:30pm - The Superintendent of Schools has called an ALL CLEAR. All shelter-in-place protocols have been lifted and schools will dismiss students as normal at the end of the school day. If your child normally walks home and you would like to pick them up after school please contact your child’s school directly to make arrangements. Stay safe everyone!

Update 1:28pm - schools will remain in shelter-in-place for the remainder of the school day. School busses are scheduled to run as normal. If parents/ caregivers wish to pick up their children, early pickup can be arranged by contacting your child’s school directly.

As of 11:30am all Medicine Hat Catholic Schools have been put in a shelter-in-place as per division emergency protocol. A shelter-in-place is intended to keep staff and students safe and secure in the school building during a severe environmental situation.

In this circumstance, classes will continue to run as normal and students will be kept indoors until further notice. We want to ensure families that students are safe in the school buildings. Schools will be contacting parents/caregivers directly if any further direction is required.
