Following the recommendations of parents and the school community, the Fisher River Board of Education along with Leadership of Fisher River Cree Nation has decided to suspend classroom learning for the first semester ending in February 2021. We feel that the suspension is necessary to alleviate fear and to keep our students safe with the COVID-19 situation we are facing in the community. Classes may resume at that time, but only if it is safe to do so.

For the interim, learning from home will proceed as previously scheduled. The teaching teams from Charles Sinclair School and Fisher River High School will continue to provide homework packages for Nursery to Grade 12. The teaching teams along with the Director of Education will also work to minimize the impact of this suspension by procuring online learning tools and technology for all students. Details to follow once these plans have been finalized.

Note that all students must be registered at the applicable school to receive the homework packages and resources that are being prepared. As well, Grade 9-12 students should attend the FRHS to select courses. Homework packages for both schools will be ready for release on Friday, September 18.

With this, we recognize that the suspension of in-class learning will cause significant disruption for our school community but as always, our priority is student safety. We thank our parents for the continued patience and support as we navigate this challenging time together. We encourage everyone to continue practising safety protocols and to continue being kind.

Together we can get through this.
