2022-23 School Year Plan for Stewart Valley Students and Staff

September 07, 2022

Wednesday, September 7, 2022 - The fire at Stewart Valley School on August 26, 2022 was a devastating and traumatic loss for students, staff and the community of Stewart Valley. During the days immediately following the loss of the school building, Chinook School Division has been working to identify and secure options for Stewart Valley students to attend school for the 2022-2023 school year.

Through the division’s consultations and presentation of options, many Stewart Valley families indicated a desire for Chinook to provide a space where the students and staff would remain together as a school, while some families made the choice to register their children at another Chinook school.

After exploring all possible facilities, it was determined that Success School can make accommodations within their space without significant disruption to their school operations, based on the present number of Stewart Valley students moving to the school. Stewart Valley students and staff will be able to maintain their current classroom configurations, while the Success School classrooms will also remain unchanged. The generosity and support of Success School staff and students in sharing their school space is greatly appreciated.

Transportation will be provided for the 2022-2023 school year and Stewart Valley students will start attendance in their classes at Success School on Monday, September 12. The administration from both schools are working together to ensure a smooth transition for all students and staff. Transportation will also be provided for the 2022-2023 school year for the individual Stewart Valley School students that have chosen to register at Waldeck and O.M. Irwin schools. 

The division would like to thank Stewart Valley School families for their patience, support and input during a very difficult and challenging time for their community, as work was being done to ensure a positive and smooth transition for their children. Thank you to all who have reached out to offer help and solutions for the school.
