Cold Lake Configuration Transition Plan
For 2021-2022 there will be only one change made to the configuration of schools in Cold Lake. Students who are currently in Grade 3 at North Star Elementary School will remain at the school next year. North Star will become a K to 4 school for 2021-2022 and Cold Lake Middle School will become a grades 5 to 8 school. All other schools will retain their current configuration.
Changes will occur at all schools except Art Smith Aviation Academy in 2022-2023. Cold Lake High School will become a grades 10 to 12 school, with all Grade 9 students attending Cold Lake Middle School, which will be a grades 6 to 9 school that year. North Star will become a K to 5 school. Cold Lake Elementary School will become a K to 3 school and Grade 4 students in the north will attend Nelson Heights, which will become a 4 to 7 school.
The final configuration changes will be made in 2023-2024. Cold Lake Middle School will become a grades 7 to 9 school, with North Star becoming a K to 6 school. Nelson Heights will become a grades 4 to 6 school.

Fun Fact: The # symbol is not officially called hashtag or pound. Its technical name is octothorpe. "Octo-”, meaning “eight”, refers to its points, though reports disagree on where “-thorpe” came from. Some claim it was named after Olympian Jim Thorpe, while others argue it was just a nonsense suffix.
