Yesterday, our students and staff commemorated National Day for Truth and Reconciliation by watching a Division-wide video and participating in activities, lessons and projects related to Truth and Reconciliation as we remember the lost children, survivors and families impacted by residential schools.
Today, Red Deer Public Schools remembers the lost children, survivors and families impacted by residential schools. National Day for Truth and Reconciliation gives time and space to reflect and learn more about the history and ongoing legacy of residential schools. As schools are closed tomorrow, all 11,000 students and 1,500 staff in Red Deer Public Schools will commemorate National Day for Truth and Reconciliation today by watching a Division-wide video and participating in activities, lessons and projects related to Truth and Reconciliation. We encourage our community to watch the video that was shown to our students and staff by visiting our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7EcWhf0YdZc.
A reminder to our Red Deer Public families that schools will be closed on Friday, September 30 in recognition of National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Students and staff are encouraged to wear orange shirts on Thursday as schools will watch a Division-wide video and be engaged in grade appropriate lessons regarding Truth and Reconciliation throughout the day.

Notes on Translation
The electronic translation service is hosted by Google Translate. The quality of the translation will vary in some of the languages offered by Google. Google Translate is a free service and currently offers translation in over 50 languages, although an impressive number, this does not capture all languages or dialects. The basic translation’s goal is to capture the general intention of the original English material.
The Cobb County School District does not guarantee the quality, accuracy or completeness of any translated information. Before you act on translated information, the District encourages you to confirm any facts that are important to you and affect any decisions you may make.
The Cobb County School District is committed to parent, family and community engagement, and it is our hope that by providing this tool on our website that we are making our information more accessible to families whose first language is not English and thereby enabling better engagement in public education.
