Posted on: General News

(Fort McMurray, AB, May 18, 2024) We are pleased to share that all Fort McMurray Schools will be open on Tuesday May 21, 2024. 

As always, the safety of our students, families, and staff remains our top priority. The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo has lifted the evacuation order for Abasand, Beacon Hill, Prairie Creek, and Grayling Terrace. The Evacuation Alert has also been lifted for Fort McMurray, Draper, Saprae Creek, Gregoire Lake Estates, Fort McMurray First Nation # 468, Anzac, and Rickards Landing Industrial Park. The State of Local Emergency has also been lifted for our region. We look forward to welcoming our entire community back home. 

We are thankful for the dedicated work on Alberta Wildfire, RMWB Emergency Management, and all first responders for all of their efforts during this time.

To stay informed, we encourage you to continue following the social media channels of Fort McMurray Public School Division (FMPSD), Fort McMurray Catholic School District (FMCSD), and Conseil scolaire Centre-Nord (École Boréale). These channels will provide you with the latest updates for specific school divisions.
