Looking Ahead to September

As our communities do their part to reduce the spread of COVID-19, we understand that students and families want to know what our plan for school in September will look like.

We do not know what September will look like in terms of the spread of COVID-19, but we are developing plans that will continue to give quality education for all students.

The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD) is working with us, teachers, principals, educational leaders, and unions on a reopening plan. Before a plan for September can be announced, it has to be reviewed and approved by public health officials to ensure it will support the safe return of students and staff. This plan will include input from parents/guardians, students, and School Advisory Councils about their at-home learning experience.

The DEECD is aiming to release a reopening plan for the end of July with Public Health approval.

Until a reopening plan is ready, we recognize the uncertainty that you may be feeling. We are committed to keeping you updated when we have concrete information to share.

We thank our students and families for your dedication to at-home learning. We are also grateful to our teachers and staff for adapting quickly to continue providing a quality learning experience for our students. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we plan for September.



A program intended to foster skills in all areas of development through exploration and play.

Welcome to CRMS







We are one of 41 schools with the Annapolis Valley Regional School Board offering a high quality public education program.

Clark Rutherford Memorial School began as a military base school. It opened in 1957. At that time, there was a primary school and a grades 4-9 school. In the early 1990's, word of CFB Cornwallis closing began to be heard. As a result, in 1993 three neighborhood schools closed and the children came to Clark Rutherford Memorial School. The enrollment at that time was 325 students.

When it was built, Clark Rutherford Memorial School was named for and dedicated to Lieutenant-Commander Clark Rutherford of HMCS OTTAWA who gave his life for his country. LCDR C.A. Rutherford RCN Captain lost his life when his ship was sunk by enemy action during the Battle of the Atlantic on September 14, 1942.

To ensure the safety of everyone in our building, we ask that all parents and other visitors to our school check in at the office.

Please remember that all of our teachers teach reading and writing for the first 2 hours of every day. It is important that all students are at school before 8:05 am every day so that they do not miss any of this valuable teaching and learning time.
