A Message from the Chairperson and Director General of the Cree School Board
April 27, 2020Youth News

The spring of 2020 has brought lots of change to our world. Right now, it’s hard for you to see your friends or to gather with cousins and other family; you also don’t see your teachers at school. Instead, you talk to your friends on the phone or through social media, and you learn in new ways, such as online. For those in high school, we know you are facing uncertainty. The world is a confusing place right now, and we, like you, find ourselves looking for new ways to accomplish our goals.
