Under normal circumstances, today would mark the start of another Blue Jays season. While we’re all disappointed that we can’t join together at Rogers Centre with our incredible fans and supporters, we believe that it is essential to stay connected. Baseball is, at its core, about community. We at Jays Care just released a video piece, narrated by Sportsnet’s Jamie Campbell, on our social media platforms celebrating baseball, community, and the importance of staying together—today and over the coming weeks. If you see a fit, we encourage you to share the post on your personal and organizational channels to help us spread our message of togetherness and community.
Earlier this week, Jays Care also launched daily challenges to help give kids across Canada fun and educational activities they can do from home. We are excited to announce that these challenges are now available on our website through the link below and will be updated weekly. We encourage all Canadian kids and families to take part in our challenges to stay active while families stay at home.
All Lac La Ronge Indian Band schools – Senator Myles Venne School, Bell’s Point Elementary, Sally Ross School and Chief Moses Ratt School from pre-k to grade 12 including Head Start will be suspended indefinitely, effective March 20th, 2020 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. This will provide our staff and parents with time to find alternate care for their children. Our staff MAY be requested to help prepare information packages and learning enrichment packages at the request of parents/caregivers. There will be NO impact for students on absences or grades. LLRIB education is strongly encouraging children to stay at home. However, we acknowledge that the mental/physical well-being of our students is our top priority. We will have staff available via phone should any students/parents have any concerns or questions in each of our schools until Friday, March 20th, 2020.
After Friday March 20, parents can call the Public Health Nurse at LLRIB Health Services at 425-1720.
At this time, only the daycares will remain open with added janitorial staff for extra cleaning. All sick children will be required to stay at home.
All further updates and communication will be posted on llrib.com
This was a presentation made to Chief and Council by the Education Authority Working Group in Saskatoon on June 25, 2019. The official decision by Chief and Council is to hold off on moving forward with an Education Authority until April 1, 2020. Two rounds of visits are scheduled this year to update community members. The first round visits will be scheduled for late September and early October. The next of round of visits will be scheduled early in the new year (2020).
The decision to move in this direction was made by Chief and Council. LLRIB Education must respect this decision.
