As many of you may have seen or heard this morning, the Ministry of Education is opening schools on a part-time voluntary basis for K-Grade 5 next week and then Grade 6-12 at a 20% rate starting June 1. At this time the community of Kitsumkalum is still not open to visitors or non-residents, policies and proper WorkSafe BC procedures MUST be implemented before the school can operate even on a reduced basis and the community needs to be OPEN to visitors and non-residents. The school will be implementing new policy and procedures over the next few weeks and also be updating our school buses so that students can be safely transported, until these items can be completed we can not safely open the school to students and staff at this time. The teachers will continue to provide online/distance paper based learning until we can safely have students in the community of Kitsumkalum.
