Division Re-entry Strategy

Read our COVID-19 Division Re-entry Strategy for information about how we’re welcoming students and staff back into schools this September.We’re preparing to welcome students and staff back into schools this September.


  • Schools Closed Until Further Notice


    From the Alberta Government:

    Effective immediately, students will no longer be attending classes in K-12 schools and post-secondary institutions until further notice.  School authorities are expected to continue their regular day-to-day operations and ensure the safety of school facilities. Maintenance, capital projects, cleaning of facilities and administrative work will continue.

    Every K-12 student will receive a final mark and students will progress to their next grade level next year. At this time, diploma exams essential for post-secondary acceptance will continue. Every student who is eligible to graduate from Grade 12 this year will graduate.

    Teachers and other school staff will still be expected to work, either from home or at their workplace, to ensure these expectations are met. Decisions on how to do this are still to be made, and it may vary depending on the school jurisdiction. 

    We will ask that parents and students do not come into our school for the next two days to get items from their lockers until we have an opportunity to establish safety protocols for social distancing. We will gather more information moving forward and share it with you as soon as possible. 

    We care about our students, their families, and our staff. We are doing the best with what information we know at this time, and we want everyone to be healthy in our entire LaZerte community as we work our way through uncharted territory. Thank you for your understanding as we progress forward with the best interests of our students at the forefront. We are moving ahead together and we will ensure students and families have information as soon as we are able to deliver it. 

    Please check back on Wednesday, March 18 for our latest protocols around accessing materials, posted news, and what comes next. Thank you for understanding and walking alongside us as we take our next steps forward.

  • OverDrive E-Book and Audiobook LaZerte Library - Now Available!


    We're excited to let you know that OverDrive is up and running for LaZerte via the Sora App (not to be confused with Solaro)

    With our yearly license  we will be able to access 4300+ ebooks and ~250 audio books, exclusive to EPSB participating high schools - which as of this week includes M.E. LaZerte!  

    • You can install the Sora App for free (search for "Sora" in Google Play or Apple Store, download and install) on any of your mobile devices. You will likely have to search for our school (type M.E.LaZerte when prompted to "find a school"), and then you will be asked to synch via your EPSB Gmail or will have to manually enter your email and password.  


    • You can access the account / platform on a desktop / laptop / chromebook  via https://soraapp.com/welcome/login/200093 . From there, it will authorize logging by clicking "Sign In Using Edmonton Public School Board" and then you will be prompted to enter your EPSB / Google Mail email address and password. This should automatically sign you in. 

    If there are any issues with installation and usage, please send students to see Mr. Semenuk in the library.
