At this time, all Youth sector students are receiving distance learning.
Schools have prepared for a school closure, including transition for online instruction until it is safe for students to return to class.
For more information on the return to school for Pre-school, Elementary, and Secondary students, please contact your school principal or CEA.
In response to the increased risk levels in Eeyou Istchee, all adult education buildings will be closed until January 18, 2020 (January 25 for Mistissini, Waswanipi, Oujé-Bougoumou, and Nemaska).
General education classes will be offered to students online during this time; vocational training programs are currently paused.

Students may complete school online, either from their place of study or their communities. Guidance Counsellors are available via videoconference, and we are doing everything possible to ensure safe travel home for students during the winter holidays.
