RE: 2022-2023 SCHOOL YEAR

Welcome back to another school year as we are all excited to see students back into the classrooms. At the end of the last school year, we had lifted our COVID 19 Protocols as there will be no mandatory masking, cohorting, or screening at our school, unless otherwise informed by Health Authorities. We anticipate that all students will fully participate in school including extra-curricular activities planned for the school year. However, if students and staff are experiencing any symptoms, particularly respiratory symptoms, increases the risk of transmitting to others. Individuals should stay home if they are feeling ill to prevent the spread of illness. The motto is:

If you are sick, stay home.

If you are well, come to school.

When in doubt, wait it out.

There will be some changes to our transportation services this year, as we had to secure a one-yearcontract with an external bussing company (AJ Bus Lines) to provide transportation services specifically for students attending Biidaaban Kinoomaagegamik on the River Road Route and the two (2) Espanola High School Routes. It is anticipated that AJ will hire two community drivers and one from the local area. Parents and students are encouraged to be at their pickup locations earlier than usual to allow for drivers to familiarize themselves with the full day schedules at Biidaaban and EHS.


School calendars have been distributed to students and parents from Biidaaban and EHS and are available on school websites. All students are expected to return to school on Tuesday September 6, 2022, with no early dismissals. Waawaasnoode Learning Centre will be open for business on Tuesday and registration will be held for the week. Individuals returning or enrolling must visit our site – upstairs at the Multi Educational Centre for registration purposes.


Wishing all a wonderful and fulfilling school year experience. Miigwetch.
