2021-22 School Bus Service

Progressive Academy now runs several buses to the south side of Edmonton. At this time there is no service to the north side of the city.

Stay at Home Guide

We have created a one-page guide to clarify the Government of Alberta rules regarding illnesses and when students should stay home. There are two types of symptoms: core symptoms and other symptoms. If your child has both types of symptoms, please follow the guidelines for the core symptoms. Download the current version of the guide below (November 1, 2020).

Traffic

Please do not make 3-point turns near the school. The map attached shows that wherever you have parked near the school, it is possible to just drive forward to exit. Never back into intersections. The intersection by the school has four directions of students crossing, and backing into these spaces is extremely dangerous. Remember that the speed limit around schools is 30 km/h. When you enter the area, please respect all the neighbours and children walking to school by driving slowly even before entering the school zones.
