MTS Capacity Update - Relocatables!

It's official!  We are excited to announce that McKenzie Towne School will be receiving 4 relocatable classrooms, that will arrive in the fall.  These classrooms will be added to the west side of the school.  We do not have details yet about timing in terms of students moving into those classrooms, but look forward to great learning opportunities in these spaces.

Thank you to all the parents who voiced their concerns about our school capacity.  Have a wonderful summer and we look forward to seeing everyone in September!

Parents stunned as Calgary school board jacks up bus fees, removes family cap

Parent reaction to a massive hike in fees to send children to public school by bus was swift and heated Wednesday.

Trustees with the Calgary Board of Education decided Tuesday to raise fees by 38 per cent for most charter bus users and remove the family maximum cap.

In some cases, this means doubling and even tripling the amount parents will have to pay in September.
