March 15 Update: All Post Secondary Classes Cancelled

Posted On Sunday March 15, 2020

In accordance with the March 15 directive from the Government of Alberta, effective immediately, all classes, including all Trades, Academic, and Continuing Education classes, at Keyano College are cancelled. For the next three days, staff and faculty will be rolling out online delivery options for active programs.

This measure is part of the Government of Alberta response to COVID-19 to limit large group gatherings.

The college will launch online delivery of most active courses on Friday, March 20. Students are being asked to contact their instructors on Thursday, March 19 for details.

Please note the following:

  • Employees without swipe cards and public members will need to enter through the Security entrance (Entrance F) to Clearwater Campus. Or please call Security at 780-791-4911.
  • Some Student Services, including the Library, and Cafeteria, will be closed.
  • Students who are on work placements, may continue at their discretion if their employer approves. The College will help make alternative arrangements if work placements are interrupted.
  • Paid leave will be provided to any staff who are ill. Staff who are self-isolating and are well will work from home. Staff who are experiencing child care issues as a result of school and daycare closures, may also arrange work-at-home options with their supervisors.

As always, our top priority is the health and safety of our staff and students, as well as the public at large.

Keyano is also in the process of launching a messaging system, SchoolMessenger, to directly and effectively communicate any urgent messages with staff, students, and lease holders within our facilities. The College has also created a webpage which will be updated regularly with the most accurate and up-to-date information.

Keyano College has implemented safety protocols, including increased cleaning and sanitizing of high-traffic areas, to help ensure the health and safety of our employees. All Keyano College events as well as Keyano Theatre events have been cancelled for the rest of March.
