January 13, 2021 – Dear Parents, Guardians and Community Members

As you are aware Kitaski has been declared an outbreak by LLRIB Health and LLRIB. We are asking for everyone to be extra vigilant. Protect yourself, your family and others by following the Public Health precautionary guidelines and ensuring that we all do our part in preventing the spread of the virus.

LLRJB Internal council has approved all schools close for in-person programming for LLRJB schools in the communities ofKjtsaki (Bell’s Point Elementary School, Senator Myles Venne School), Hall Lake (Sally Ross School) and Sucker River (Chief Moses Ratt School). All schools will be implementing Distance Learning until the outbreak is declared over.

At this time, it is not known when the outbreak will be lifted, we will operate on a week-by-week basis. We ask you contact the schools every Friday for an update for the following week. We also ask you routinely check our social media sites for updates. Staff will be at the school to
answer any phone calls if you have any questions.

If you or your child or family member that resides with you are experiencing any COVID19 symptoms, please contact the Health Line at 811 and stay home as advised. If medical attention is required, please call your health care provider ahead of time. If it is an emergency call 911. LLRIB members are asked to contact the Jeanie Bird Memorial Clinic for any questions @ (306)425-1720.

We are here to support your family and we appreciate your understanding and help to work together to decrease the spread ofCOVID19.

Thank you for keeping our children, elders and community members safe.
Sincerely,

LLRIB Education – Letter to Parents – Sept 1, 2020

September 1, 2020

LLRIB Education will be reopening the 2020-2021 school year with a weekly Blended Learning Model in place. All LLRIB students will be placed into two groups: Group A and Group B. Group A will attend one week and Group B will continue Distance Learning; the following week they will alternate. The purpose for the week in class and week at home is to allow for proper contact tracing and cleaning between groups. Groups will be divided based on family connections to support our families who may have children in different schools who care for younger siblings. You will receive a group assignment and calendar indicating which week your child is to attend.

Please see the attached document which provides a quick overview of the changes that have occurred in our reopen planning. We are requesting that parents and community members do not enter the building with your child and that your child use the entry and exit doors that are indicated at their schools. If your child is taking the bus, please let your child know that they will have their temperature checked when they enter, they are to use hand sanitizer, wear a mask and they are to sit in their assigned seating. When possible, please walk or drive your child to school.

If you are still concerned about the safety of your child and would like to know the alternative options that you have as a parent, please see the quick guide below.

School Re-Opening Plan

Weekly Learning Groups
Alternating Week Schedules:
• Students are selected based on their ability to Socially Distance.
• Students are placed in groups that support student success, and students who are in the same households.
• Students will attend one week for in person classroom instruction and will participate in Distance Learning on their alternative week.
• If the same group of students are in attendance for an entire week, this will allow for faster Contact Tracing and an allowable time to show symptoms if they are unwell.
