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. Depending on the area and the number and ages of children, we may be able to provide to-the-door pickup, with some areas requiring central street stops. Fees are $80 per month per student. Unfortunately, as this is a highly subsidized program, we can not extend multi-student discounts for the bus. For 2020-21, due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation, mask use will be mandatory for all students on the bus and seating will be assigned. Daily student Covid symptom assessmentLearn more

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.

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.Learn more

Students in Junior Kindergarten and all students in Out of School Care will be required to fill out an electronic declaration every day. A link to the form will be sent to your email directly. For all other K-9 students who do not attend out of school care, parents must perform the Alberta Covid-19 Health Daily Checklist with each student before getting on a bus or entering the school. We do not require a paper copy of this, it is simply a self-assessment tool.Learn more

Should you have specific questions regarding these procedures, please talk to your classroom teacher. Please see this post if you need a copy of the school map.Learn more
