In response to the letters we wrote to the Minister of Education...

January 18, 2012

Dear grade six class at Ecole Corinthia Park School,

Thank you for sharing your comments about Alberta’s education system with me. You are among a large number of children and youth across the province that sent me their thoughtful and creative ideas.

Right now we are moving towards creating a new education law this spring. In the mean time we have also created a 10-point plan with projects to improve education right away.

Alberta has a great education system and I want to make sure it continues to grow in the right direction. It is important that all students in Alberta have the best education possible so everyone can continue to learn new things and become more knowledgeable each year. I want you to be successful learners so you can achieve your dreams.

The 10-point plan for education includes many great initiatives such as a project to reduce travel times for some students who spend more than one hour on a bus and building playgrounds at the same time as new schools. For you and your parents to learn more about the 10-point plan and for other information please visit: www.education.alberta.ca.

I would like to send you a bookmark as a token of my appreciation for your input, and encourage you to send me your mailing address. I hope you will find it a useful reminder that you had your say about Alberta’s education system.

Please write me anytime to share your ideas on education, I am always listening.

Your friend,


Thomas A. Lukaszuk
Minister of Education
MLA, Edmonton – Castle Downs

Inclement Weather Bus Cancellation notice:  Please note that Black Gold Regional Schools will not be operating any school busses in the Division Wednesday, January 18, 2012 due to the warning issued by Environment Canada as follows:

Leduc - Camrose - Wetaskiwin - Tofield

Wind chill warning for
Leduc - Camrose - Wetaskiwin - Tofield continued

Wind chill values of minus 40 to 50 developing tonight.

This is a warning that extreme wind chill conditions are imminent or occurring in these regions. Monitor weather conditions..Listen for updated statements.

Cold Arctic air has invaded much of Alberta and will bring temperatures of minus 30 to 35 overnight. These temperatures combined with winds near 15 to 20 km/h will give wind chills of minus 40 to 50 in the above mentioned regions overnight.

At these extreme wind chill values frostbite on exposed skin may occur in less than 10 minutes.

So far I have heard from Parkland School Division, St. Thomas Aquinas School Division and Elk Island Catholic Schools that they will not be running.  Wetaskiwin Public Schools have said they will intend to run and make the decision in the morning.

The information can also be found on the main website at www.blackgold.ca, an automatic voice mail will be sent to all bus student’s parents and drivers will contact rural parents. 

Schools are open.

We have every intention of operating the following day, Thursday January 19, 2012.
