Return to In-Person Learning June 2

Friday, Premier Rankin and Dr. Strang announced plans for Nova Scotia’s reopening, including a return to in-person learning on Wednesday, June 2nd for many regions across the province, including AVRCE. A news release about this announcement is available at  

To allow school staff time to prepare for the June 2nd return to in-person learning, there will be no school for students on Monday, May 31st and Tuesday, June 1st. At-home learning will not take place on these days.  

The decision to return to in-person learning is based on careful consideration of COVID-19 data by Public Health. We know best place for students is in the classroom, where they can interact with their teachers, peers, and school staff.  

Our schools are safe and ready for students return to school next week. We will continue to follow public health guidance and the same layered approach to health and safety that was in place before at-home learning. Mask wearing will be required for all students and staff, enhanced cleaning procedures will remain in place, class cohorts will continue, and frequent hand washing/sanitizing remains a priority. With warmer weather, there will be many opportunities for outdoor learning.  

School administrators will be in touch with families with school-specific information as needed. 

Thank you to students for your hard work to stay engaged in your classes, and thank you to families and staff for doing your best to support students and learning at home over these past few weeks. We understand it has been challenging, and we are excited to welcome your child back to school on Wednesday, June 2nd.

Dear Families, 

I would like to take this opportunity to reach out and thank you for all of your support during our At-Home learning experience. The teachers are preparing and delivering engaging lessons that provide your child with new learning opportunities while building on previously learned skills. We will continue to bring interactive lessons and activities to your children for the remainder of the school year. There is so much more teaching and learning to happen before we are done in June.


We will continue to follow our school calendar, which includes the packing up of student materials and personal items towards the end of our year. Our focus now is on providing continued teaching and learning experiences. As a staff during the last week of school, we will safely pack up all of the individual student materials and any items that were not picked up already such as; shoes, water bottles, and clothing. An ALERT will be sent at that time outlining how the Chromebooks and other learning materials can be delivered back to the school and we will be able to incorporate the returning of items to you at that time. This will ensure that we are all remaining safe and following COVID-19 protocols. 

Thank you for all your support; helping your child manage and navigate technology, supporting them with the work they have to do, and most importantly ensuring they are present and attending their classes. We greatly appreciate this invaluable support and teamwork.

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.
