Current situation

Updated Thursday, August 26, 2021

The Cree School Board continues to monitor and respond to the evolving COVID-19 situation.
Here are our updates for this week:

Elementary and Secondary

Cree School Board schools have safely resumed classes for the 2021-22 school year, with Scenario A measures in place. We thank all employees, students, and families who continue to follow our measures and keep our schools safe.

Adult Education

Adult general education classes will resume September 7, 2021. Students will follow the same measures in place at the end of last school year, including wearing procedural masks in shared areas and distancing when in class. More information about schedules and measures for their first day of school will be sent to adult education students directly.

Post-Secondary Student Services

The Cree School Board is supporting a safe and successful school year for post-secondary students. Those who choose to study online from their community will receive financial assistance. We continue to support those who are traveling south for their studies.

We wish everyone a wonderful week ahead, and a continued safe start to the school year.
