Principal’s Message


Dear Parents and Visitors,

Welcome to the 2020-21 school year!  A new school year is always a time of great excitement and anticipation.  As a staff we are excited about working together as a school community to achieve our school goals. 

Buffalo Head Prairie School continues to offer a strong overall program for students.  This year, staff will continue to learn and grow in the priority areas of connectivity, literacy, and numeracy in an effort to create meaningful learning opportunities for students.  As we consider the practical application that will be required of students to navigate themselves responsibly in today’s society, we have some tremendous challenges ahead of us.  Buffalo Head's School Education Plan outlines the structure that will be used to address jurisdictional and school goals.  This plan was developed by members of our school community and demonstrates an investment of educational energy by all parties.

This school year, with respect to the COVID-19 situation, we anticipate some uncertainty.  Every effort will be made to lead the school in a way that supports family preferences while abiding by the requirements of Alberta law.  At the forefront of all decision making will be the safety of students, staff, and parents.  

As parents, you play a key role in your child’s education.  We need you to be involved, caring and supportive as we navigate an uncertain future together.

As a school staff, we will work passionately to help your children learn and grow this year.  Please feel free to contact myself or our assistant principal, Mrs. Morris, should you have any questions or concerns throughout the school year.


Mr. C. Fehr
