To all YK1 families: The Office of the Chief Public Health Officer has announced that all Yellowknife, Ndilo and Dettah schools will be closed until further notice as a result of the recent COVID-19 outbreak at N.J. Macpherson School. This is a proactive step to mitigate further spread within the community. YK1 understands that families will be eager to learn the details around remote learning for students during this period. Staff are currently working to ensure the structures and resources are in place for learning at home, with the expectation that remote learning will begin for all students on May 5, 2021. An update with additional information specific to your child’s school and remote learning plan will be shared with you by the end of the day on May 3, 2021. Attached is a letter from YK1 Superintendent/ CEO Ed Lippert further explaining this public health advisory. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding, and stay safe.
