Elementary and high school students will return to the classroom beginning August 27th.
The CSB has developed the three scenarios in consultation with the CBHSSJB’s Public Health. With the risk level low in Eeyou Istchee, we are currently in scenario A. We are prepared to move to scenario B or C should the risk level increase in Eeyou Istchee.
Further details will be communicated soon.
The CSB reviewed our office reopening plan with the Cree health Board public health officer, and it was determined that head office employees could begin reintegrating back into the office beginning July 20, 2020.
The head office employees have been split into three groups during the reintegration period, with altering groups working in the head office two weeks at a time with the remaining time working from home. All offices remain closed to the public.
All teachers returning to Eeyou Istchee for the 2020-21 school year will be self-isolating for two weeks upon re-entry into the territory. Teachers have been provided with information to support their self-isolation and to guide them through the school year. Teachers may direct any additional questions to their principal, CEA or supervisor.
In accordance with Scenario A, all Youth sector students will return to school full-time on August 27.
Schools will have new health & safety procedures in place this year, including physical distancing between class groups and regular hand washing/sanitizing.
The Online Learning Platform will remain online, so students and their families can continue to access digital education resources at home.
For more information on the return to school for Pre-school, Elementary, and Secondary students, please contact your school principal or CEA.
Continuing adult education students (those who attended last school year) will resume classes on September 8, 2020. Continuing students who wish to return to adult education in September must complete an online application between August 3-15.
Community members who did not attend adult education will begin later in the Fall, and can apply starting September 1, 2020. Please join our mailing list if you would like to receive updates on upcoming programs.
