Current situation

Updated Thursday, February 25, 2021

On Friday, March 5, the Cree School Board will be closed for a Well-Being Day.

As part of the CSB’s ongoing efforts to promote mental health and wellness in our schools, all CSB buildings will be closed for a Well-Being day on Friday, March 5.

It is our sincere hope that this Well-Being Day gives everyone a chance to recharge and enjoy a moment of rest.

Thank you for your continued cooperation with public health measures. If you have specific questions, please contact your local school or adult education facility directly. For any questions about COVID-19 protocols, please call public health at 1-866-855-2811.

  • Elementary & Secondary schools: In-class instruction continues, with all schools in Scenario B. Students in the inland communities of Mistissini, Oujé-Bougoumou, and Waswanipi will continue to wear procedural masks provided by their school next week. At all other community schools, including Whapmagoostui and Nemaska, stu- dents may wear face coverings from home. Please refer to the CSB Health Measures by Alert Level for details.
  • Adult General Education: Mistissini students continue to learn online due to the Mis- tissini Adult Learning Centre’s preparations. All other communities are following a hybrid online/in-class model.
  • Adult Vocational Training: All local vocational training programs have resumed in full. Regional vocational programs at SRVTC remain paused due to the intercommunity travel restrictions, with tentative plans to resume on March 10.

    Please be reminded that March 3, 4, and 5 are PED days for both the Youth and Adult sectors. As you plan your activities, we ask that you please be mindful of the current travel restrictions in place.
