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
